Cultural activities

In addition to the scheduled itinerary, students will have the opportunity to explore Paris’ monument-lined boulevards, museums, iconic buildings, bistros and boutiques. No trip to Paris is complete without a visit to the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, a stroll along the glamorous avenue des Champs-Élysées or a visit to Notre Dame cathedral, a masterpiece of French Gothic architecture.

With many great artists having lived and worked in Paris over the years – including Renoir, Rodin, Picasso, Monet, Manet, Dalí and Van Gogh – the city is home to some of the world’s finest galleries including the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay and Musée Rodin. Moreover, the largest collection of modern art in Europe can be found at the Centre Georges Pompidou, a dynamic and vibrant hub of contemporary art.

If you want to venture further afield, a trip to Palace of Versailles is recommended to see the magnificent gardens, marble courtyard and the Chateau, which was made into the centre of political power in France by Louis XIV, and in 1919 the Treaty of Versailles was signed marking the official end of WWI.
