Program Excursions

While participating on a CISabroad program, you'll be able to take part in built-in day trips at no additional cost. These trips are subject to change from term to term; listed below are excursions that have run in the past.

Palace of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles, a former French royal residence, is one of the most famous monuments of World Heritage distinction. With 60,000 artworks, collections of Versailles illustrate five centuries of French history. It is one of the most visited attractions in France and must-see French landmark. Before the guided tour of the King’s Private Apartments and Royal Opera House, we usually visit the State Apartments with the Hall of Mirrors, an impressive seventy-three meters long gallery that pays tribute to the political, economic and artistic success of France. After the tour and before enjoying the wonderful royal gardens, we will also visit the Queen’s Apartments.

2-day Trip to Rennes and Mont-Saint-Michel

Spend a day in the amazing city of Rennes whose history goes back more than 2,000 years and which is recently named by L’Express as “the most livable city in France”. On the following day, we will go to the Mont-Saint-Michel, a magical island topped by a gravity-defying medieval monastery. One of Europe’s major pilgrimage destinations for centuries, this holy mount is one of the most unforgettable and stunning sights in Europe, set in the bay where the regions of Normandy and Brittany merge.

Boat Cruise on the Canal Saint Martin

A cruise from the Parc de la Villette to the Musée d’Orsay will allow us to experience the atmosphere of “Parisians’ Paris.” This cruise, commented by a guide, combines not only some of the landmarks of the City of Lights, but also some more secret sides of Paris. It will take us through four double locks with swirling waters and two swing bridges. We will share the pleasure of the walkers strolling along the banks of the Canal Saint Martin lined with pretty boutiques and charming cafés and slide under the mysterious and spectacular vault of the Bastille.
