Spring Break 2014 in Paris!

90th Anniversary

UD invented study abroad, with the first class traveling to France for the 1923-1924 school year. Join us in honoring that milestone during a spring break to remember, March 28–April 5, 2014!


Due to popular demand, a second tour group has now been added for March 21–29, 2014!


UD’s Institute for Global Studies invites alumni, faculty, staff and friends to join us for an adult spring break program in France to commemorate our first study abroad program in 1923.

Paris, known as the “City of Light,” has many must-see places, but the only way to discover the “real” Paris is to venture off the beaten path.

This program will include airfare, transfers, hotel with full breakfasts and Internet, your selection of walking tours in and around Paris, a guided group excursion to Normandy Beach, a tour of some of the most famous French markets with tastings, and dinner overlooking Paris at 58 Tour Eiffel on the Eiffel Tower.


Paris Information:

Airfare and Hotel Accommodations: Roundtrip flights from Philadelphia to Paris with coach transfers from the Charles de Gaulle airport to the Paris Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel, with a seven-night hotel stay that includes a daily breakfast buffet and Internet access in the hotel lobby, and daily Metro passes. A light dinner reception on the first evening includes a brief orientation to the area and Metro system, as well as a walking tour to introduce the “City of Lights.”


  • Touring the open-air markets of Paris with tastings of chocolates, infused honey, macaroons, cheeses and more in the 17th arrondissement, Batignolles-Monceau. The tour is followed with a traditional French lunch made from ingredients gathered in the markets.
  • Touring Montmartre, the artist quarter that many say holds the secrets of Paris’s hidden past. Starting at the Moulin Rouge, see the home of Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso’s studio, the Lapin Agile; Picasso’s favorite restaurant, Moulin de la Galette; the last windmill in Paris, sites from the movie Amelie, which was filmed in this district, and the Basilica du Sacre Coeur with a beautiful view of the whole city of Paris.
  • A full day group tour of Normandy Beach including the rugged shoreline of la Pointe du Hoc, which has the craters in place from the extensive bombings of 1944, the German bunkers (built by the unsuspecting French), the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Omaha Beach, and lunch on the shore that marks the place that the Canadian sector arrived for D-Day. ·
  • The week will close with our farewell to Paris dinner 180 feet above Paris at the Eiffel Tower.
