BolognaPesaroTeatro RossiniOthelloPiazza del Populo Pesaro

Our days begin with a relaxed morning stroll through the streets of Saint Michel to our classroom in the Sorbonne – just a short, pleasant walk from our hotel. There we enjoy an informal lecture to prepare us for what we’ll be exploring later in the day. Some mornings we are joined by select guest lecturers….experts in their particular specialty. Following the lecture, Professor Sutherland leads us to unique, perhaps uncovered, areas of the city that help reveal the story of the revolution. At those locations he’ll explain the significance of the site as we envision the events that transpired.

Want to see Paris from a unique perspective? Try a boat trip along the Seine. If it’s shopping you’re after, then perhaps it’s a trip the Galleries Lafayette.

When it comes to nightlife, you couldn’t be in a richer city. Whether it’s a romantic dinner for two that you seek or an evening exploring entertainment options in the city of lights, our staff is always on hand to recommend the best eateries and most coveted venues for an exciting and entertaining night out.
Seminar Evenings

Discussion and debate are the hallmarks of any learning experience. That’s why two evenings during the week are reserved for special seminars designed to encourage group participation and discussion. While we enjoy a few bottles of wine Professor Sutherland leads us in a discussion of topics we’ve covered during our visits and morning lectures. The locations for these seminar evenings are a story in themselves – rustic and historic restaurants off the beaten path. All participants have the opportunity to contribute their thoughts and impressions and get feedback from other tour members.
