If you are looking for a unique way to bring classroom textbooks to life, why not take your students on a classic tour for schools?
One place worth discovering firsthand is beautiful Provence in France. You can tailor your tour of this amazing region to meet your group’s specific itinerary and even opt for flexible meal arrangements. With so many brilliant itineraries to choose from, you’re sure to show your students an educational adventure!
Begin your travels by making your way to France via coach, crossing the Channel by ferry.
Your first day in France will be one of leisure while you wait for your coach to be ready – this is a great opportunity for your students to relax and refresh before the learning begins.
Provence is well-known for its brilliantly-preserved Roman ruins and this is the perfect region for learning more about this ancient culture. Begin your journey in Nimes, which is home to a Roman tower, a large amphitheatre and a temple – all of which are in excellent condition.

Elsewhere, your group can visit Pont du Gard to see the three-tiered Roman aqueduct firsthand or travel to Glanum, near St Remy de Provence, to see the remains of temples, government buildings, fountains and homes. The incredible thermal springs at Aix-en-Provence are also well worth a visit.
Of course, there is more to Provence than Roman ruins. The area is rich in medieval history as well and your group may wish to stop off at the fortified village of Les Baux de Provence and the city of Avignon to get a taste of this rich and colourful past.
While the purpose of your classic school tour is education, there’s no reason why learning can’t be fun! In your leisure time, why not spend some time at the Aquacity fun park near Marseille, where your students can enjoy river rapids and waterslides? Other areas that offer great entertainment include the magnificent grottoes at St Vellier-de-Thiey – featuring an incredible underground lake and waterfalls – or the aquarium at La Grand Motte.
