OMGGGG!!! I am so excited to go on this epic spring break trip as a chaperone to London & Paris! It is a jam packed schedule though and that amount of business worries me because I (shockingly) get art history fatigue. I recently went through the whole itinerary to figure out which images in the AP Art History curriculum I could (possibly) see and it is a HUGE list! We may not see it *all* and I will definitely update this list after our trip.
