Wonderful Reasons to Take a School Trip to France
France is a wonderful country for kids and adults alike. Its capital, Paris, is not referred to as the City of Lights for no reason. It has its beauty lit up within its core and etched in its pore—from its cuisine to its history, and architecture. What are some of the places to visit while in France?
The Eiffel Tower
As much as a school trip involves imparting some education, your students will at some point want to play tourists. What better way to do this than to visit the main attractions in Paris? Incorporating a visit to the Eiffel tower on your school trips to France will help add some fun to the whole experience.
Even though the lines can at times get very long, the wait is usually worth it. You could take a ride on the carousels nearby as you wait for your turn. The views from the tower are nothing short of breath-taking.
The aerial view of the city and the look on the students’ faces as they take it all in are bound to last for a long time.
