The Great Tours: France Through the Ages    NEW!

Professor John Greene of the University of Louisville has prepared a 24-session video course showing the history and scenic beauty of France with excellent graphics. Sessions include the birth and rise of Paris, the splendor of Versailles, and the French Revolution. Then NE to Champagne and the battles of World War I, followed by the beaches and bunkers of WWII on the west coast. Then the Painters and Pilgrims of Normandy and the Wild West of Brittany. Next the beautiful Chateaux's of the Loire, followed by Bordeaux  (which I will visit in October). On to the French Basque region, the Pyrenees, and Carcassone (which my family has visited). Next Arles, Marseilles, Cannes, the Isle of Corsica, and Avignon. Going north it’s on to Lyon, Beaujolais, Dijon, Burgundy, Alsace and Lorrraine and then back to Paris. Thus, the tour covers most of France, the most visited country in the world. Each class will include two-three videos plus personal photos, as well as time for class interactions.

NOTE: $2-3 for the course is requested for the $100 fee to the Great Courses.
