A Halal school trip to Paris offers an exciting opportunity for your students to explore the rich history and culture of France!

This is the perfect trip for students studying art or French, or as a general excursion designed to enhance your students’ cultural knowledge. You’ll enjoy sightseeing opportunities, including a boat trip along the Seine or a visit to the Tour Montparnasse for a view across the city that includes the famous Eiffel Tower!

For artists, visits to the Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre are unmissable. And for French learners, there will be plenty of opportunity to discover the culture through interactions with locals in French!

Plus, you’ll learn more about Islam in France with a visit to the Grande Mosquée de Paris. The oldest mosque in Metropolitan France, it plays an important role in the visibility of Islam and Muslims in France. And, of course, you’ll be very welcome to take part in prayers at this and other local mosques in Paris during your school trip.
