Nestled along the Mediterranean Sea less than an hour from the Italian border, Nice offers its visitors a truly unique experience. With a wonderfully rich cultural background, including strong Italian influences, Nice features many museums, a beautiful historic quarter, a growing restaurant scene, and the azure waters of the Mediterranean. The city also has an incredibly welcoming community of friendly locals and plenty for people of all ages to do, see, and discover. Nice offers a unique way of life and an extraordinary artistic culture shaped by musicians, painters, writers, and chefs.
Attracting millions of tourists from around the world each year, Paris is one of the most widely-visited cities in the world. This large metropolitan city offers its visitors a wealth of cultural activities and attractions, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and the Champs Élysées. However, the city is anything but one-dimensional. Each of Paris’ twenty arrondissements (administrative districts) exudes its own unique culture and attitude, from the Latin Quarter in the 5th to the classic bohemian feel of the 18th. Paris is the ideal destination to experience the hustle and bustle of a big city, but also to enjoy a peaceful stroll along the Seine on a warm summer evening. With museums on almost every corner, World Endeavors interns will be sure to experience life as a true Parisian during their internship as well as after-hours.
