November 7, 2019

The Ames Chamber of Commerce has announced today that it will be visiting the vibrant coastal region of the French Riviera, departing on September 19, 2020, and is inviting Chamber members, and family and friends of Chamber members, to join them on this once in a lifetime experience.

Full of rich culture, the French Riviera has much to offer to any tourist. Travelers will enjoy an eight-day journey to this stunning area of France, recognized internationally as a mecca for luxury and sophistication.

Trip highlights include visits to the spa resort town of Cannes, home to the International Film Festival; learning about the perfume industry in Grasse; walking in Grace Kelly’s footsteps through Monaco; exploring the picturesque Romanesque Cathedral in Monte Carlo; visiting medieval Villefrance, a historical and major sea port town; and relaxing in St. Tropez, the wine region of the French Riviera featuring beautiful beaches.

“The Ames Chamber Travel program is a unique opportunity to experience the French Riviera,” said Dan Culhane, President & CEO of the Ames Chamber of Commerce. “Travelers can take in the country’s culture, learn about its business climate, try new things and make lifelong memories and friends. I hope many of our members will take advantage of this travel experience and join us next September in the French Riviera!”

Space is limited for this trip and interested parties are encouraged to take action soon. Don’t miss out on the chance to visit the French Riviera, exchange ideas with local business representatives, make new friends, and build new memories.
