Program Notes
Program Description

In this short program, you will study travel writing in Paris, where visitors have been inspired to chronicle their experiences for hundreds of years. We will read and write our way through Paris in the footsteps of Hemingway and other luminaries. As part of the experience, we will take excursions to sites of historical and cultural significance including the Louvre, the Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d’Orsay, and Versailles.

The Program Fee includes transfers in Italy, hotel, all excursions, two group dinners.and international medical insurance. Students and faculty will reside in centrally located hotels that include daily breakfasts.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from France, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Paris. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
