<h3>Day one - Tuesday, May 21</h3>
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">Paris is always a good idea, but when better than in the Spring? Past the Grand boulevards and the intimate cobbled streets, along the meandering banks of the River Seine, and close by the smart boutiques sits <a href="https://www.dorchestercollection.com/en/paris/hotel-plaza-athenee/" target="_blank">H&ocirc;tel Plaza Ath&eacute;n&eacute;e</a> where our adventure begins.<br />You may choose to come early, to sit in wicker chairs on the terrace of atmospheric caf&eacute;s and sip strong coffee while thinking deep thoughts as many philosophers before you. To saunter through the Tuilieres Garden on your way to uncover some artistic treasures of the past. To feast at one or well, why not more, of the many temples of gastronomy here.&nbsp; <br />Whenever you arrive and whichever Paris you make your own, please be prepared!</p>
</div>

</div>
<!--day 1 P1 ends here--> <!--day 1 P2-->
<div class="col-sm-5"><!--<h3>Day one - Tuesday, May 22</h3>-->
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">Overlooking the Eiffel Tower on one side and the headquarters of Dior, Yves- Saint-Laurent, and Chanel on the other, every window of H&ocirc;tel Plaza Ath&eacute;n&eacute;e is adorned with a bright red awning and framed with beautiful crimson geraniums. Here you can be sure that Paris&rsquo;s reputation as the most romantic city in the world remains intact.&nbsp;<br /> <br />The hotel has a three Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse restaurant and a brasserie that&rsquo;s played host to every mover and shaker in the city for a hundred years, but it&rsquo;s the internal courtyard at the heart of the hotel, surrounded on all sides by sweeping curtains of greenery that&rsquo;s the venue for our opening night.&nbsp; <br />Expect exquisite food and a whole host of performers to transport you back to Paris&rsquo;s belle &eacute;poque era.</p>

<h3>Day two - Wednesday, May 22</h3>
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">The morning begins in Paris where, after a sensational breakfast, our road adventure begins. On avenue Montaigne outside the hotel, traffic will be stopped and a line-up of forty of some of the world&rsquo;s most prestigious supercars will be waiting in a staggered grid formation, the light glinting off the polished surfaces. Great flags, made by the fashion houses of Paris, and a beautiful arch of roses make a grand starting line.&nbsp; The race begins along the River Seine and past the iconic Eiffel Tower, before quickly disappearing into the French countryside. Our route heads south towards the Loire Valley, hailed by UNESCO as &lsquo;an exceptional cultural landscape of great beauty&rsquo;, and a designated world heritage site. For hundreds of years this land was home to French nobility, so it&rsquo;s a region rich in historic castles. We will be lunching in one of the finest; a feast fit for a king.</p>

<!--day 2 P1 ends here--> <!--day 2 P2-->
<div class="col-sm-5" style="overflow: auto;"><!--<h3>Day two - Wednesday, May 22</h3>-->
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">Our route turns east now towards Burgundy; &rsquo;paradise of paradises&lsquo; for those seeking out exceptional wine. The landscape is lush and rolling, perfect for bringing out the best in the Chardonnay or Pinot Noir grapes. Mersault, Puligny-Montrachet, Pommard, Vosne-Roman&eacute;e; names famous the world over are brought to life as you motor past their vines. Beaune is at the heart of this wine country, a pretty walled town with cobbled streets and ancient houses of light stone. A friendly place used to playing host to many wine-lovers over the centuries. Hotel Le Cep embodies this. A charming family run place made up of several mansions somehow joined together by secret passages around a series of hidden gardens. It&rsquo;s the perfect place to sample some of the best vintages the region has to offer with food to match.</p>

<div class="col-sm-5" id="day3">
<h3>Day three - Thursday, May 23</h3>
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">One of the secrets to a fantastic drive is variety, and this morning we swap the rolling hills and pretty vineyards of Burgundy for the mountains of the Jura. This is one of the undiscovered regions of France with few people and fantastic driving. In France, mountains often mean cows and cows mean cheese. Comt&eacute; and Morbier cheese are made here and our lunch stop will focus on the local produce and the beautiful mountain scenery.</p>

</div>
<!--day 3 P1 ends here--> <!--day 3 P2-->
<div class="col-sm-5"><!--<h3>Day three - Thursday, May 23</h3>-->
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">The Jura serve as an appetiser for the mountainous main event: The Alps. Our route this afternoon takes us south of Lake Geneva and then up into the higher mountains of the Aravis range. The road snakes through deep gorges and winds up over grassy mountain passes before arriving in Meg&egrave;ve.&nbsp; This Alpine village is picture perfect with narrow cobbled streets radiating out from its medieval central square and ancient wooden chalets dotted around the mountainside.&nbsp; Hotel Fer &agrave; Cheval is a classic example ‒ hitting exactly the right rustic but luxurious notes with an extremely comfortable nook by a roaring log fire. Dinner in the cosy dining room will showcase the hearty mountain classics of the Savoyard region.</p>

<h3>Day four - Friday, May 24</h3>
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">Friday on The Run To is traditionally known as driving day; there&rsquo;s a reason why Monaco has been a prized destination for car rallies over more than a hundred years. Glorious roads await which are almost always bathed in the blazing sunshine expected of the South of France. Leaving Meg&egrave;ve and the Savoy region and dancing round the high peaks, we head South into the High Alps.&nbsp; <br />Our final lunch on the road is usually an al fresco affair to take advantage of the rare privilege of coming into such remote places with such wonderful cars. The emphasis here is on breathtaking views and this year our spot doesn&rsquo;t disappoint.</p>
</div>

<!--day 4 P1 ends here--> <!--day 4 P2-->
<div class="col-sm-5"><!--<h3>Day four - Friday, May 24</h3>-->
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">The final leg gives a gift that&rsquo;s truly life affirming: The pleasure of driving over the last peaks of the Alps Maritimes to be struck by the awesome sight of C&ocirc;te d&rsquo;Azur and the Mediterranean sea stretching away a thousand metres below. With a weekend of fun to follow at the Monaco Grand Prix there can be no finer feeling.&nbsp; <br />The finish line in Vence is on the terrace at the incomparable Chateau Saint-Martin. A glass of champagne will be waiting for you as you admire the view, toast new friends, and reflect on a journey of nearly fifteen hundred kilometres.&nbsp; Helicopters will whisk you from Chateau Saint-Martin to our base for the weekend in chic St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. On the beach at Hotel Royal-Riviera, with the waves of the Mediterranean gently lapping the shore, a fresh seafood dinner will be served.</p>

<h3>Day five - Saturday, May 25</h3>
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">Saturday morning is a time to relax, enjoy the sun, and be thankful that you&rsquo;re staying in the chic surrounds of Cap Ferrat rather than the busy streets of Monaco where the engine noises begin very early. At your leisure, our highly polished launches will be on hand to take you the short journey along the gorgeous coastline to arrive at the race in style from the sea. Our base is The Run To Monaco super yacht, berthed by the circuit, and decked out with carpets, sofa&rsquo;s and teeming with staff. The bar is open and the grill is sizzling. If there&rsquo;s a more comfortable and luxurious spot to watch sport from, we haven&rsquo;t found it yet!</p>

<div class="col-sm-5"><!--<h3>Day five - Saturday, May 25</h3>-->
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">Saturday evening is the wildest of the weekend and we&rsquo;ll be throwing a spectacular party on The Run To yacht. Live music, DJs, performers, artistes, and skilled barmen make this the place to be in Monte Carlo&rsquo;s Port Hercules. Monaco can be difficult to negotiate on Saturday night, which is why we have chauffeurs on hand to take you home when the time comes.</p>

<h3>Day six - Sunday, May 26</h3>
<p style="padding-top: 20px;">Enjoy another morning to relax and recover in the gardens of Cap Ferrat with a late and leisurely breakfast. Our fast launches will be ready to speed you trackside for the main event whenever you please.&nbsp; Run since 1929, the Monaco Grand Prix is the most iconic motorsport race in the world and it&rsquo;s fitting that the greatest driver of all time, Ayrton Senna, made it his own with six wins from 1987-93. The atmosphere is like no other, with the particularly narrow track making driving conditions unique as F1 rockets negotiate past pharmacies, homes and casinos.</p>
