So much history lies in the Northern regions of France.  Introduce your students to the importance of the D-Day Beaches, the Tapestry of Bayeux which depicts the events leading up to the Norman conquest of England, and entertain them with Arthurian tales at the Broceliande Forest in Brittany!

And of course Paris!  See the sights that have made this city one of the most visited places in the world.  

Eat delicious food and practice your French ordering your meals at the restaurants of your choice.

What other teachers said about this trip

If there’s one thing that all teachers can agree upon, it would be our love of having things planned to a T. I quickly realized that A La Carte Travel feels the same way as we do! I simply told them where I was most interested in going with my students, and they took the lead on finding us great activities, hotels, and restaurants that made for a trip that was educational and enjoyable . I was initially intimidated by  the idea of taking 20 high schoolers to France, but the whole experience was completely stress-free and I cannot wait to go again. My favorite part would have to be the chocolate making class. I’m still dreaming about those truffles! I cannot recommend A La Carte Travel enough. The only question is: where should I go next?
