Our days begin with a relaxed morning stroll through the streets of Saint Michel as the city of Paris awakens to another day.  The destination is 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 on. Following the lecture, Professor Sutherland leads us to unique and often undiscovered, areas of the city that help reveal the story of the revolution. Along the way we enjoy getting to know a charming side of the city that most tourist never get to see.

Plenty of time during the week is left free so participants can explore their own interests. During the course of the week participants have several afternoons and evenings free. 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, it would be difficult to find richer city. Whether it’s a romantic dinner for two that you seek or an evening exploring entertainment options in the “City of Light,” our staff is always on hand to recommend the best eateries and most coveted venues for an exciting and entertaining night out.

Seminar Evenings
During the week we spend two evenings engaged in discussion and debate about the material we cover.  These special seminar evenings are designed to encourage all participants to contribute their thoughts and impressions. While the group enjoys outstanding French meals (and a few bottles of wine), Professor Sutherland leads a discussion of topics covered during the visits and lectures. The locations for the seminar evenings are often stories in themselves – rustic and historic restaurants off the beaten path.
