“Martha's Café in Paris was excellent and fab location. Pupils loved free time around Place du Tertre in Montmartre and the view of the Eiffel Tower from the Trocadero at night. We spent the whole day and evening (until 11pm) in the city, which the pupils loved. We visited Vimy Ridge as a break on the way back, stopping for a picnic lunch. This was the coach driver's idea and we will do this again.”

Old Buckenham High School
Monet's Gardens, Giverny

Monet's Gardens, Giverny

Home to Claude Monet from 1883 until his death in 1926, Giverny is where Monet produced some of his most celebrated work. It's a half-day excursion from Paris, and a chance, perhaps, to capture something of what inspired him. You can also visit the Marmottan Museum in central Paris.

Rodin Museum

Rodin Museum

The beautiful, grand 18th century Hôtel Biron was once home to the famous sculptor and today houses a collection of the highlights of Rodin's career, including "The Thinker" and "The Kiss." Some sculptures are displayed in the gardens which allows plenty of scope for sketching. 

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower

The instantly recognisable symbol of Paris, the Eiffel Tower can be seen from almost any point in the city and the view from the top is truly awe-inspiring. It dominates Paris to such an extent that it's hard to believe it's only a little over a century old, having been built in 1889 to celebrate the centenary of the French revolution. No trip to Paris would be complete without a visit to ...

Louvre Museum

Louvre Museum

Housed in France's former royal palace, the Louvre is now one of the finest and most complete art galleries in the world. Its collections range from the ancient world to the 20th century, with the Pyramid and CyberLouvre multimedia gallery bringing the collection right up-to-date. But most visitors are only here to see one thing - the Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile.

Pompidou Centre

Pompidou Centre

Since 1977, the Pompidou Centre has been France's leading centre for contemporary arts. Artistically and architecturally it is a clean break with Paris' long artistic and cultural traditions and it is home to permanent and temporary exhibitions of contemporary art as well as cinema.

Sacre-Coeur Basilica

Located at the summit of the hill of Montmartre, and surrounded by the houses of this famous bohemian quarter, the white, Romanesque domes and arches of the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur were built in the late 19th century by subscriptions from all over France.

Musee d'Orsay

Musee d'Orsay

The Musée d’Orsay charts the development of European art between 1848 and 1914, an era when Paris was unquestionably the world’s cultural and artistic capital. Its diverse collection includes works by Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, van Gogh and other artists, many of whom spent much of their artistic careers in Paris. The museum offers a range of guided tours in English, includi...

Bateaux Mouches

Bateaux Mouches

One of the best and most relaxing ways to see the sights of Paris is to take a Seine river boat cruise. Starting at the Pont d'Alma, near the Eiffel Tower, your cruise will take you up stream to the Ile de la Cité and Notre Dame Cathedral. Trips last around an hour and depart every 20 minutes at peak times.

Picasso Museum

Picasso Museum

After his death in 1973, many of Picasso's works went to the French state, which decided to form a museum with the collection. To house it they chose a 17th century hotel situated in the Marais. This is the Hôtel Salé that was built in 1656 for the general Aubert de Fontenay. Before housing the Musée Picasso, the hotel was already well-known. It was leased to the amba...
