Day 04 - Tuesday April 19, 2011

====================================================== Arras (Vimy Ridge) and Paris

View Paris and Madrid 2011 on DannyRoberts's travel map.


Today you will have a Full Day excursion to Arras. Located just outside of this small town lies the twelve thousand tonne marble monument atop Vimy Ridge commemorating Canada’s significant victory during World War I. Bilingual Canadian guides offer a haunting tour of the networks of tunnels and trenches that housed German and Canadian troops during the battle. At the museum students may learn more about the battle and the monument at Vimy.

Later you will return to Paris for dinner and overnight at the hotel
