Even at night, the medieval French architecture of Strasbourg shines. Published on page E9 in the Travel section of New York Newsday, Sunday, May 13, 2001.

Corners of France
Customized, rather than organized, travel in France can be arranged through the “Corners of France” offerings of Latitude Travel & Tours of Haverhill, Mass. For instance, a short visit to the Alasace region in eastern France—which usually isn’t swamped with tourists—starts at $795 per person, double, and provides two nights in Paris and three nights at a Relais du Silence hotel near, say, Strasbourg. Travelers receive a rental car, daily breakfast, a three-day second-class railway pass and an itinerary consultation. Among places to visit in Alsace are canal-laced Strasbourg and Colmar, both with plenty of Medieval architecture and the Route du Vin through vinyard-girdled villages. Call 800-955-8553.
