Spring Break Schedule


Our tentative itinerary includes time in Strasbourg and in Paris. The travel days (flights and train) are set in stone, but other items are subject to change. In Strasbourg we will stay at the Gare Hotel; in Paris we will stay at the Timhotel Paris Place d’Italie. Breakfast each day is provided in the hotels; unless group lunches or dinners are specifically noted in the schedule students are on their own for those meals. We will provide you with a public transit passes for Strasbourg and Paris. 

Students should have maps of Strasbourg and Paris and guidebooks for each city. Some items not on our official itinerary that would suggest seeing include the Strasbourg Cathedral (Mass times) and Grand Mosque (visitors page), and spectacularly gory paintings of hell in the Musée de l’Œuvre Notre-Dame (information)
