- SAMPLE ITINERARY
While wandering down ancient streets from the Île de la Cité to the Latin Quarter, you’ll pass by the city’s most beautiful sights, including the Cathedral of Notre-Dame and the 15th century Pont Neuf. Learn about Celtic tribesmen, medieval kings and enlightened writers.
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. Serving as the archdiocese of Paris, its reliquary holds some of Catholicism’s most precious relics, including the Crown of Thorns and a piece from the True Cross.
Take in the best of Paris student travel as you admire the luxury shops and cafés of the tree-lined Champs-Elysees. A tour guide informs students of the rich history behind icons such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Opera House.
Peacefully flowing through the heart of this historic city, the River Seine takes you past hotspots such as the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais, the Louvre and the Cathedral of Notre Dame.
Here at the most visited museum in the world, you’ll see famous masterpieces such as Venus de Milo, Liberty Leading the People and, of course, The Mona Lisa. Housed in a historical palace and a Glass Pyramid, the 35,000 piece collection ranges from prehistoric treasures to 21st century works.
Paris’s boulangeries have spawned many imitations, but no city does baked goods and chocolate like Paris.
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.
This stunning Beaux Arts railway station has been transformed into a haven for impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces by genre-defining artists such as Monet, Manet, Renoir, Degas, Cezanne and Van Gogh. Located on the River Seine, gilded architectural details adorn this Parisian treasure.
A mecca for impressionist lovers, this idyllic, rural town was home to Claude Monet from 1883 until his death. Feel inspired while walking through peaceful gardens that rival the beauty of any sight you’ll see on your international student tour.
Now a Parisian icon, Gustave Eiffel’s art nouveau tower was once a temporary exhibit for the 1889 World Fair. Although early critics called it “useless and monstrous,” its world-wide acclaim assured permanence. While ascending the 320 meters of latticed iron, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of Paris’s ritzy 16th arrondissement.
