Morning departure from school
If you’re looking for a fun experience to get your French students talking, you’d be hard pressed to beat a school trip to the French Christmas markets. The one at Amiens has over one hundred stalls standing back to back, selling all kinds of wonderful things, including local delicacies including macarons d’Amiens!
You can combine your trip to Amiens with a visit to the beautiful city of Arras, once the heart of the historic Artois region, or one of the important WW1 battlefields sites nearby.
