Examine the politics, history, and cultural identity of France through the music, architecture, and museums in Paris and Versailles. Every week the class experiences the thrill of live music by attending concerts, and enjoys the pleasure of “haute cuisine” at bistros and restaurants in Paris and Versailles. While visiting several museums, parks, and cemeteries, students participate in the adventure of scavenger hunts, looking for clues that answer specific research queries into the life and artistic identity of the French people.
