As a CEA student, you’ll have the opportunity to go on excursions to explore regions near you. My favorite excursion was to the French region of Provence.

Living in Antibes, France is like living in a daydream. The best way to experience the small city is to get lost in old town for hours, just exploring the history, art and nature.
