France for History Buffs

When most people think of France, they think of romantic dinners in chic Parisian cafés, strolls along the banks of the Seine, and vacation photos taken with the iconic Eiffel Tower in the background. But for history buffs, France holds a different appeal. Many battles took place in France during the two world wars, with American soldiers fighting alongside the French in both. Many of the battlefields and historic towns that played a role in these wars are tourist destinations today. A trip to France to visit these sites will appeal to any history buff interested in American involvement in World War I or World War II.

While battlefield conditions were difficult, to say the least, Lugos Travel offers luxury France travel at its finest. Our trips feature the best accommodations and cuisine and are designed to meet your every need. A personal concierge is always available for last-minute requests and to ensure that everything is to your liking during the trip. You’ll experience France in a more authentic way when you travel with us.
