Join Wabash alumni and friends of the College for eight days of history, food, and wine in France. Wabash Professor of History Michelle Rhoades will lead us as we visit Paris's most famous sites. There will be planned time for you to explore on your own. Director of New Media Howard Hewitt will kick off the trip using his experience as a wine writer leading the group through France's Languedoc wine region.
We'll spend nights in Montpellier and enjoy the old city and its famed Place de Comedie. We'll travel the French country side and spend a day in the historic city of Carcasonne. Our time in Paris will include a dinner cruise down the Seine, day trip to Versailles, and trip to Claude Monet's Giverny.
There will be plenty of time for exploration and shopping along with gastronomical and oenophillic adventures!
