There are far better ways to learn European history than sitting in a
classroom slogging through textbooks and listening to teachers drone
on. Take, for instance, a visit to London's magnificent Globe Theatre.
A float down the Seine in Picturesque Paris. A chance to get to "know"
the Sun King at over-the-top Versailles. And time to relive the D-Day
invasion along the Overlord Route in Normandy. See what we mean?
London, Paris, & Normandy. A Firsthand Family History Lesson.
Please note: This journey was created for an extended family of 20-odd members—grandparents, parents, and grandchildren with a wide age range. The family had R. Crusoe create several of these family reunions. Please remember, as you read on, that R. Crusoe & Son will tailor this journey to fit the needs and wishes of your own family, to address the particular interests of your children (and the adults among you), to add age-appropriate activities, and to create a tour just for you and yours.
London is a great city for families, especially if this is the children's first visit to Europe. The flight is not too long, English is spoken (with a twist, of course), and there is plenty for kids to do and see and get excited about.
After taking in the sites, we board the Eurostar train for a trip through the Chunnel, an experience in itself, and we surface in France.
Paris is a wonderful walking city. And a private behind-the-scenes tour of the Eiffel Tower, control room and all. Besides exploring Paris, there's time in Versailles for a look at the excesses with which King Louis XI surrounded himself.
Then into Normandy, where we follow the Overlord Route along the coast to the D-Day Beaches and beyond.
Finally, at Giverny, Claude Monet's gorgeous home, we familiarize ourselves with the French impressionist school.
