Even though your adventure starts in Nice, our course-related trip takes you beyond the city to discover the culture and traditions of your host country and beyond. The cost for this trip is included in the program fee.
Marseille & Rabat
2 Weeks | Summer
While in Marseille you will live in the center of the city within walking distance to the colorful Vieux Port, where ships have docked for more than 26 centuries. Regular class time will be supplemented with course-related trips such as the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations, the Aubagne headquarters of the French Foreign Legion and historical tours of the city.
From Marseille, you will travel to Rabat, Morocco, a city that boasts a cosmopolitan mix of European Modernism and North African and Islamic tradition. Rabat is an ideal place to learn about the languages, cultures, and religions of North Africa within the francophone world. During your time in Rabat, you will live with a Moroccan homestay family to experience first-hand the culture, traditions and cuisine of this colorful city.
