Get ready to experience all that Paris has to offer! A thoughtfully planned culture package is included with a range of activities to give a wholly encompassing pulse on the life of the city.

Two times a month, students attend performances or spectacles, in some of Paris’ most iconic venues like the Opéra, Comédie Française, Théâtre de Chaillot, Philharmonie de Paris, Théâtre de la Ville, and Théâtre des Champs Élysées. Take in a selection of shows: concerts, plays, modern circus, and dance. Which one will be your favorite?

Indulge in a cooking workshop with your cohort and learn a couple of iconic French dishes! After class, skip the line and discover the national museums including the Louvre, as many times as you would like with the Louvre Jeunes card.
