General Notes

Program is for grandchildren ages 14-17. Triple rooms are not available. This program is also offered for grandchildren ages 9–13 "Kids in Paris: The City of Light With Your Grandchild" (#21308). Current Events in Paris: Due to the fire at Notre Dame, the cathedral is closed to visitors. Road Scholar programs that visit île de la Cité will be able to see the outside of the cathedral, but we will not be able to go inside. Also, because of the ongoing protests in Paris, we may need to make last-minute changes to the itinerary to avoid visiting areas blocked by protesters.
