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: The National Archives
Kick the day off with a historical city tour. Stop off at all of Paris’ must-sees to learn about the social and political upheaval during the French Revolution.
Visit the National Archives, which dates back to the French Revolution, to see original copies of famous documents you’ve studied. It’s home to the Declaration on the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, a human rights document from the French Revolution.
Indulge at dinner in the Montparnasse area. Then, go up the Montparnasse Tower to watch the sun set over a panoramic view of the city.
