1) What kind of weather can I expect in France in late July and early August?
Average daytime temperatures will range from high-70’s to low-90’s. Rain is fairly infrequent at this time, but participants may wish to bring a lightweight, waterproof jacket or a small umbrella just in case.
2) Can I arrive before or remain after the sojourn?
Yes. If you would like to arrive at the start location in advance or remain at the end location after the sojourn has concluded, Scholarly Sojourns can help you arrange your hotel accommodation and is often able to secure attractive rates. Please indicate these preferences to us after you have registered for a particular sojourn.
3) How much walking will be required on this sojourn?
Paris is a very walking-oriented city and we take part in a number of walking tours on this sojourn. Participants should feel comfortable walking up to a mile at a time and capable of climbing up to three flights of stairs at a time.
4) I am a single traveler, can you help me find a roommate?
Scholarly Sojourns will do all we can to match single travelers with a suitable roommate if they desire. But we cannot guarantee that roommates will be available. Therefore all single travelers should register as such and be prepared to pay the single traveler rate should a roommate not be identified.
5) Is this sojourn appropriate for children?
This sojourn is not appropriate for children. Young adults, however, will find the program quite enjoyable, and they may find it gets them extra credit in their Art History class.
The meeting point for this sojourn is either the Hotel Saint-Paul or Hotel le Clos Medicis in Paris. Participants making their own travel arrangements should plan to arrive between 10:00 and 16:00 on Sunday, June 4, 2017. The first official sojourn activity begins at 17:00 that day.
