Paris in the Northwest

Dear Classmate,

Have you heard the news? Paris American High School is once again reuniting in France – this time with a highlight – a visit to our old school! Please join us in Paris and Avignon September 21-29, 2020!

We will gather in Paris on September 21 for three nights, then it’s on to Avignon by TGV for five nights in Provence September 24-29, concluding with farewells on the morning of September 29.

Keep reading for the what, when, where. For updated information, visit the website – 2020


In Paris…

  • A welcome reception
  • A visit to the Garches school site, now home to American School of Paris
  • A drive-by the Bel Manior, Petit Beauregard, and Teen Club former sites
  • Plenty of time on your own in la Ville Lumière
  • Visit Monet's Gardens in Giverney

In Avignon / Provence…

We are still finalizing our agenda at this writing, but it will include some – maybe most – of the following:

  • Here’s your chance to knock another thing off your bucket list by dancing on the St. Benezet bridge (“Sur le pont / d’Avignon / On y danse, on y danse…”)
  • A visit to the Palais des Papes (Popes’ Palace) in Avignon, seat of the papacy during the 14th century
  • The Isle-sur-la-Sorgue Sunday market, featuring food, antiques, and flea market fare, a sort-of combination of Paris’ old Les Halles and the Marché aux Puces
  • A day at St. Rémy, a favorite venue of Vincent Van Gogh who produced over 150 of his paintings there
  • Les Baux de Provence, famous for its son et lumière light show in the old quarries there
  • A visit to the Pont du Gard Roman aqueduct and the Nîmes Roman ruins
  • A visit to Aix-en-Provence villages of either Aix or Luberon
  • And of course, plenty of time on your own.

We will conclude the Provence segment with a capstone dinner together, in the fine manner of our previous Paris 2000 and France 2015 reunions.
