10 or 12 days
Brussels, Lille, Paris, with extension to London

Experience centuries-old cities like Brussels, Bruges and Paris, and walk across the same battlefields where Canadian soldiers fought and died to liberate France and Belgium during World War II and battled against the odds in the First World War. The spectacular memorials and somber cemeteries like Menin Gate and Tyne Cot are symbols of the sacrifices of our ancestors and the respect Europeans have for Canadians. Experiencing the Remembrance Day Parade in Lille will bring students a permanent connection to the past and to your lessons.
