  • 1) What kind of weather can I expect in France and England in mid July?
    In central France, average daytime temperatures in July range from low-70’s to mid-80’s. Temperatures are roughly 10 degrees cooler in England. Rain is always possible at this time, so 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?
    There is a fair amount of walking required on this tour as we make our way around the historic monuments. 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 tour is the Gare de Poitiers—the main train station in Poitiers, France.
    Those making their own travel arrangements should plan to arrive at this train station by 11:00 AM on the first day of the tour. You will be greeted there by your Scholarly Sojourns Tour Director. The program begins promptly at 11:30 AM when the group will depart to visit the sites of Poitiers.
