Day 1: The Eiffel Tower
Start your French adventure off, as you arrive at Gare du Nord/Charles de Gaulle airport and hop on public transport to your hotel. On the way, your Learning Adventure guide will give you some fascinating general knowledge about the area and get you up to speed with trip rules and safety guidelines.
Once you’ve checked into the hotel, it’s time to start exploring! Take a boat ride along the River Seine, where you’ll stop off to climb the Eiffel Tower. Look out onto the city you’re about to explore and pick out some of the places you’ll be visiting.
Enjoy the view of the iconic Eiffel Tower from the Trocadero esplanade at sunset and watch it twinkle as it lights up. End the day feasting on a well-earned welcome dinner and come together for a trip briefing to get you ready for the week’s adventures.
Day 2: Sorbonne University Lecture
Start your day with a city tour to stop off at all of Paris’ must-sees, like the Notre Dame, Latin Quarter, Place de la Concorde, la Concergerie, Avenue des Champs-Elysées, Arc de Triomphe, Sainte Chapelle, Place Vendôme, Le pont de l’Alma (Lady Di memorial) and Port de La Bourdonnais.
It’s going to be an intellectual afternoon. Head for Sorbonne University, one of the most prestigious institutions in the world, to take a tour and enjoy a lecture on the subject of your choice.
