France August 2018 Blyth Academy International Summers Program

About This Program

What better way to fall in love with France than to sample all it has to offer, with jaunts to Paris, the Mediterranean, and the French countryside?

To get a real feel for the traditional French way of life, one must begin with an exploration of Aix-en-Provence, the capital of countryside culture. The cobbled main streets, fascinating shops and splendid cafés offer the perfect environment for studies. History is rich in this area, with many Roman ruins dotting the landscape, including the Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard, where visitors can swim under huge stone archways, and Nîmes, an outpost of the Roman Empire.

Head south to the glamorous Côte d’Azur (French Riviera) for some celebrity gazing, yacht-watching, and relaxing on fabulous beaches that see upward of 310 days of sunshine each year. One of the first modern resort areas, France’s Mediterranean coastline plays host to over half of the world’s super-yacht fleet, and one of the most famous film festivals, Cannes. But the area isn’t just a playground for the well-heeled—the French Riviera is also home to 35,000 post-secondary students at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, 25 per cent of whom are working toward doctorates.

With a palette suitably calibrated to French culture, you’re prepared to enter picturesque Paris, the City of Light and an epicentre of fashion, art, and cuisine. It also boasts some incredible landmarks: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Coeur Basilica, Louvre, Notre-Dame and Arc de Triomphe, among many others. Develop an ear for the language while picnicking on the banks of the Seine and people-watching from the sidewalk cafés of the Champs Élysées, or opt to take in even more history with an excursion to the Palace of Versailles or a day trip to Vimy Ridge.

A veritable feast of food, fashion, philosophy, and more, a thousand years of fantastic culture awaits you in France.
