Without France, the American Revolution would not have succeeded. Without America, the French Revolution might not have happened. America & France are two nations united by a shared history, a history that is older than America itself. Our Founding Fathers sought the help of France to create our nation, and this tour will take you to the places where these great patriots lived & worked. Along the way we will discuss the contribution that France made in ensuring American victory against the British – and the contribution that America made in disseminating Revolutionary ideals among the French elite. The Franco-American friendship has now lasted 230 years, and throughout that time Americans have continued coming to Paris.
