The Alps, Provence, and Barcelona: June 9 - 21, 2019

Each stop on our 13-day journey will leave you awe-inspired - from the architecture and culture of Madrid, Barcelona, and Provence to the Mediterranean shores of Nice and Cinque Terre, to the tranquility of lakes Como and Lucerne. Museums will always have their place, but sometimes it’s what’s outside that really takes your breath away.

Visit the EF Tours The Alps, Provence and Barcelona webpage for details and to book this tour.

This trip is open to any Cannon student and their families.

For additional information, please contact John Riley.

The previous trips were outstanding. It is amazing to see just how happy the heart can be when you witness the tremendous cross-culture sharing Cannon students experienced during our previous travels to China. We learned from each other, and collaborated with other students in China and now understand the world from a better view.  

We welcome students to sign up for this trip now by contacting Lirong Wang. It will be one of the most amazing two weeks you will ever experience! Please consider this great opportunity for your child; I am sure this will be a life-changing experience. Contact if you have any questions related to this trip.
