If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris...then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.
— Ernest Hemingway

In Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, Owen Wilson plays Gil, a Hollywood screenwriter, who travels back in time to Paris in the Roaring 20's. Go Learn wants to take YOU back to the swinging days (and nights!) of Paris's booming art and literary scene.

Parisian panorama

We'll stroll the boulevards and banks of the Seine and indulge in the feast for the senses and the intellect that is the City of Light! Whether you're visiting Paris for the first time or have been anxiously awaiting a return trip, this 5-day Go Learn experience will guide you through the abundant riches of Paris's literary, artistic, historical, and culinary traditions.

Alongside the U's Jeremy Rosen of the Department of English, we'll discover the story of American expatriate writers in Paris; walking in Hemingway's footsteps and visiting his favorite cafés, seeing the art that inspired Gertrude Stein's experimental poems, and gazing across the bridges where Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald fell in and out of love. Throughout, we'll explore Paris's stunning architecture and urban vistas, unique neighborhoods, legendary museums, and of course the magnificent cuisine of the world's most beautiful city. We'll return to iconic landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Museum d'Orsay, and Luxembourg Gardens, wander fashionable districts like the trendy Montmarte and the artsy Marais, and graze over the vast and beautiful array of wine, cheese, and pastry vendors in Paris's spectacular food markets. Throughout, we'll enrich our knowledge of Parisian history and literature from the bohemian café culture and American expatriate artist scene of the Roaring Twenties, as we gobble up this Moveable Feast!

Paris, that eternal monstrous marvel ... the city of a hundred-thousand novels ... a living creature, the great courtesan whose face and heart and mind-boggling morals they know: "They" are the lovers of Paris. — Honoré de Balzac
