3 Day Paris Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Paris

Morning: Airport Pickup & Orientation

A view of Paris from inside a dimly lit airplane

After completing your long flight, one of our guides will meet you to start you off answering questions about Paris and making recommendations. Your concierge will be outside the baggage claim with croissants to take you to your hotel by either private car, train, or taxi through Gare du Nord. You’ll have sights explained to you along the way, or you can take a chance to learn the metro system if you decide to go by train. Once at your destination, your concierge will also give you information about the neighborhood.


Evening: Cooking with Class

A Hands-on lesson in French Cuisine. Learn how to select top quality produce from the market with an English-speaking chef, and meet local merchants while exploring the markets of beautiful Montmartre. Back at the school—(where aprons, chopping boards, and chef’s knives are provided)—you will cook a 4-course meal from start to finish. At the end of the hands-on cooking session, you’ll sit down around the dining table and enjoy the meal you created with you fellow sous-chefs, including an excellent selection of cheeses from the market and some great wine.


Day 2: A cheesy morning with a lively night out
