A center for learning and the arts since the 12th century, Paris has epitomized cultural sophistication for centuries. Wander down medieval streets, tour the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral and marvel at architectural feats such as the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. Students can smile back at the Mona Lisa while enjoying a guided tour of the world-famous Louvre. Free time during this international student tour is spent exploring the cafes of the bustling Latin Quarter or shopping off the streets of the “International Capital of Style.” Paris student travel wouldn’t be complete without an excursion to Versailles, where students will tour the palace that epitomized decadence and watched over the French Revolution.

Built on the site of an even older Île de la Cité cathedral, the Notre Dame’s flying buttresses, chimera gargoyles and millennia-spanning history have made it one of the most famous cathedrals in the world.

Built in 1682 when Louis XIV moved from Paris, this baroque pleasure ground was enjoyed by decadent royal families until 1789. Famously inhabited by the opulent, soon-to-be-beheaded Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette, it was violently attacked by hungry and dissatisfied peasant women at the start of the French Revolution.
