Description

This day tour to the city of Chartres will be initiated with hotel pickups around Paris. The transportation of the participants of the tour will be accommodated with a luxury airconditioned minibus. A knowledgeable driver-guide will educate the participants on common facts about the Chartres area.

The first stop of this tour will be at the Cathedral of Chartres, also known as the Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of Chartres. This medieval Catholic cathedral had been constructed between 1194 and 1250 and is exquisitely preserved, with its stained glass windows absolutely intact. Filtered by the 14th century stained glass windows, no direct light enters the cathedral; giving it a spiritual feel.

Free time will be allotted for roaming around the Chartres city streets and admiring its fully-restored half-timbered houses. Small shops are scattered along the ground of the city, giving participants the chance to acquire souvenirs of the tour. Lunch will be enjoyed during the free time.

A walking tour of the city will give participants a chance to view the Collegiale Saint André or the International Institute of Stained-Glass Works. As a place of worship, the Collegiale Saint André was closed during the French revolution. This collegiate church now serves as a cultural center after undergoing many renovations and becoming the most important church in Chartres in 1108. A better view of the Chartres stained windows of the Cathedral can be seen from the institute. Relics of La Porte Guillaume are available for viewing at the Collegiale Saint André.

This tour will end with minivan transfers back to the hotel or apartments of the participants in Paris.
