5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

PARIS: HERITAGE AND HISTORY IN THE CITY OF LIGHT: Explore Paris during the time of Victor Hugo. Take a closer look at urban planning and the work done by Haussmann to level entire blocks of narrow medieval streets in order to create wide avenues and new buildings. It was beautiful, yes, but harder for revolutionaries to build barricades and easier for the military to move troops and canon. Delve into economics and the thousands of workers who migrated from the countryside to the city to work in the factories. Some were able to support themselves and their families, but many faced starvation, poverty and violence. Discuss Hugo’s novel and its themes of revolution, justice and redemption. Attend a performance of “Les Miserables” at The Fireside Theatre.
