FRENCH RIVIERA JAZZ FESTIVAL & PARIS
July 13-23, 2023 

This trip has become a staple for Going Places International as the response has been overwhelming every year.  Ten amazing days in France including Paris and the French Riviera will provide the kind of memories dreams are made of.  The 62nd Annual Jazz Festival in Juan Les Pins is one of the highlights of the trip and is, once-again, celebrating with seasoned jazz artists from around the world.  The event has welcomed everyone from Miles Davis to Herbie Hancock and so many more.  You will enjoy jazz under the stars right on the beach with fireworks lighting the sky behind the stage in celebration of Bastille Day, the French day of independence.  Paris is a city beyond compare and we will see as much of it as possible during our five nights.  Our hotel is close enough to the Eiffel Tower to observe it from some of the Marriott Metropolitan guest rooms and our many experiences in the City of Lights will provide memories to last a lifetime.
