PICA Cultural Activities
In addition to the extensive cultural activities offered in Paris, the PICA semester-long programs also take part in additional excursions outside Paris. Each semester program includes one weekend excursion to places such as Normandy, Burgundy, Strasbourg, Loire Valley Chateaux and others. Additionally, there will be two half-day trips from Paris to visit nearby sites such as Versailles, Chantilly, Monet’s house and garden in Giverny, Provins, Troyes, Chartres, Fontainebleau–among other options.
Each semester we will arrange a series of special events which may include walking tours and guided museum visits, film screenings, culinary events or a visit to a jazz club.
The PICA short term programs in January and during the Summer will likewise take advantage of sites nearby Paris for one or two half-day trips. Among the trips we sometimes make: the palace of Versailles, The palace and park of Fontainebleau, beautiful medieval towns Provins et Troyes as well as others.
