Bonjour Nice!

It was so great, we are going back! 

In 2024, a group of 20 enthusiastic students and members from the Alliance Française embarked on an unforgettable journey to Nice. Due to the overwhelming success of this trip, we are thrilled to announce its return in 2025!

The 2025 excursion will mirror the experiences of last year, while introducing some new twists! Escape the Canadian winter by joining us in Nice, where the weather is pleasantly mild in February, averaging around 12°C. It’s cool enough to be refreshing yet warm enough to enjoy! According to an article by The Guardian: "There’s something healing about winter in the Riviera" As the articles mentions, until the 1950s, winter always was the French Riviera’s peak season. Read the full article here.
