School History Day Trip to Paris

Explore the French Revolution on a history school day trip to Paris!

Of course, there’s no better place to learn all about the French Revolution than Paris, where most of the major events took place. You may be short on time, but there’s no shortage of fascinating visits to ensure that you make the most of your time in the French capital.

Your school day trip to Paris will help your students to understand what led to the French Revolution, what life was like in Paris during the period and, perhaps most importantly, what the revolution’s legacy is in modern-day France. And if you do decide you want to spend a little bit longer in Paris, you'll be pleased to know we also offer multiday options
