Paris, beautiful as ever under exceptionally clement skies, enchanted our students with its Eiffel Tower by night and its Musée du Louvre treasures by day.
The group headed to La Cathédrale de Chartres and reached it just in time to be treated to organ music in celebration of Easter.
After visiting opulent castles, the Carondelet contingent reached the legendary Mont-Saint-Michel and climbed atop to visit its monastery and admire the surrounding view. As the skies laden with dark clouds settled overhead, students paid homage to World War II D-Day fallen heroes at the American Cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach.
The groups spent the last two days walking through beautiful Parisian neighborhoods enjoying the many sights, sounds, and smells of the enchanted city.
