    After meeting the group in Paris, we’ll leave the city behind us and make our way to Briare, a small village in the Loiret region, where we’ll board our private barge this evening. After settling into your cabin, there will be plenty of time to get to know the crew and your fellow travellers over cocktails and dinner – with a cruise through the Briare Aqueduct (one of the longest navigable aqueducts in the world) to round off the day.
