Culture Package

APA Paris Discover Paris Opéra Garnier

Experience Paris and discover France at some of the most world-renowned locales!

One of the ways APA Paris really stands out is by planning and organizing a very wide variety of cultural events. If you’re looking for a great community experience with other students like you, this is an ideal way to get out and enjoy yourself.

Each program bundles a culture package to include tickets to the performing arts, weekend excursions, and day trips to visit key sites throughout France. And you’ll benefit from free, unlimited access to most museums, including the Louvre.

New for Fall 2017, we have added a cooking workshop to the culture package!

Visit Versailles with one of APAs organized day trips.

“Le programme culturel allows you to experience France in a way that many native French people don’t! Paris is amazing because it is overflowing with opportunities to immerse yourself in all kinds of art. The performances on APA’s calendar include a variety of live music, plays, and dance in beautiful venues all over Paris.”

Jelyn, Bryn Mawr College, Fall 2012
