Every week, our partner school in San Francisco prepares a programme of the most diverse activities. A visit to the mythical prison of Alcatraz, walks in the city centre, kayaking in the bay, or even sport in Golden Gate Park are amongst the possibilities in this multicultural city. Shopping fans will be able to treat themselves in Union Square. For a bit of relaxation there’s nothing like a bikeride along the waterfront or relaxing in a café in historic North Beach. In the evenings, you will be able to dine with the other students in the Pier 39 district, famous for its restaurants and bars, or go to listen to a concert in the Golden Gate Park. Excursions will also be proposed to Lake Tahoe in the winter or to Yosemite National Park, to Santa Cruz, the Napa Valley wine region, and to Los Angeles.
