Thomas Jefferson in Paris

October 18-26, 2018

Thomas Jefferson in Paris Trip! (Oct. 18-26, 2018) - Join award-winning Jefferson historian Rick Britton as we experience the Parisian culture Jefferson so admired. He was the American minister to France for five years starting in 1784; perhaps the most memorable years of his life. We'll take in the places Jefferson loved: Versailles (where he was introduced to Louis XVI); the Louvre (where he admired the works of David and Houdon); and the city's many architectural masterpieces, including the Hotel de Salm (for which he was "violently smitten"). We'll also visit sites related to the French Revolution, take a cruise on the River Seine, and much more. Join us!
