Program Information**
Live in Angers, France
Angers is a historic city with a thoroughly modern perspective, located in the world-famous Loire Valley. The city is home to a beautiful cathedral and the Château d’Angers, a castle dating back to the ninth century. The other châteaux of the Loire Valley are nearby, making Angers the ideal home base for exploring the dramatic history of France. A variety of concerts, theater performances, and festivals occur in town, and the city has public basketball, volleyball, and tennis facilities. An assortment of museums showcase several centuries’ worth of local art. The city itself is small enough that students find it easy to get around on foot and discover their own favorite restaurants and cafés, yet large enough that all the amenities students need can be easily found.
