(Austin, TX – January 30, 2014). For students hoping to extend their high school study abroad program to include a longer stay in either Paris or Madrid, SPI Study Abroad has some wonderful travel extensions available for 2014!
A leader in the field of language and cultural immersion programs for high school students, SPI Study Abroad wants to give students who participate in their Spain and France programs the chance to fully experience the exciting cities of Madrid and Paris. The Madrid and Paris extensions are four-day stopovers in each city that can be added on to the Summer 1 or Month programs in San Sebastian or Santander, Spain; or in Biarritz, France.
Both extensions offer thrilling cultural excursions and activities that SPI students would not get to experience otherwise. In Madrid, students will enjoy a private tour of the city’s breathtaking architecture and most famed sites, including the Puerta de Sol, the Prado museum, Parque del Retiro and Palacio Real. A day trip to the charming, medieval city of Toledo will allow students to experience the famed Alcazar fortress and other wonders.
The SPI Paris Extension includes a private tour, as well: students will get the chance to check out the loveliest sites in Paris, including Notre Dame, the Jardin du Luxembourg, and the Quartier Latin. Students will also get to see some of the famous art works in the world at the Louvre museum, and will spend a day at the gorgeous Château de Versailles.
When asked about these travel extensions, Admissions Director Carrie Straub said, “The great thing about our Paris and Madrid extensions is that students will have more time to acclimate to being abroad, before they head to their program location. It’s also such a wonderful opportunity to explore two of the most culturally significant and beautiful cities in the world!”
The dates of the Madrid and Paris Extensions are June 10-14, 2014, and can be purchased at the very affordable rate of $800.
