School Trip to France

Posted by GOEducationalTours on August 4, 2020

La 'joy de vivre' is what your students will discover in Paris on a school trip to France.


Planning a school to trip to Paris, France can be easy. You can choose the standard must see sites or perhaps consider something more off the beaten path.

The key attractions all student groups wish to see are:

  1. The Eiffel Tower

  2. The Arc de Triomphe

  3. Les Champs Elysees

  4. Notre Dame de Paris

  5. The Louvre


You can easily plan your first few days around these attractions as you adjust to the time change.

Eiffel Tower

On the first day as you usually arrive early start with the Eiffel tower. The iconic steel tower is a strong stimulant to help fight jet lag.

Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees

Then after a good first meal experience of maybe a baguette students can then walk to the Arc the Triomphe and then explore the famous Champs Elysees.

Notre-Dame and the Louvre

The next day you can then plan on your visit in the morning at the Louvre to explore the magnificent collections of this most renowned museum of art. Just a few steps across the Louvre you can make your way to the Notre Dame Cathedral. Recently a fire made some significant damage but reconstruction is on time and progressing. This 14th century marvel will continue to awe students on their school trip to Paris.

Of course some of the lesser known things to see  but still very popular  are:

  • The Catacombs

  • Pont-Neuf

  • Musee Rodin

  • Musee d"orsay

The Catacombs 

These underground tunnels are an ossuary containing the remains of 6 million people. Created due to overflowing cemeteries in the 1770's, remains would be carried and stored here underground.  About a hundred years later it would become an attractions accessible to visit.


Despite its name the Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris dating back to the 250-225 BC! Make sure to cross it as you make your way around the city.

Musee Rodin

Auguste Rodin was a prolific and accomplished sculptor. Here this museum presents a collection of hundred and thousands of his pieces.

Musee d"Orsay

Once a train station it would converted to an art museum. It presents some of the most important works from the end of the 19 th century and early 20th century making it one of the top museums to see. Monets, Manets and many others works can be found here in this very original gallery
