Lafayette: Citizen of Two Worlds

Lafayette’s mythic status as the defining symbol of friendship between France and the United States was solidified during his triumphal American tour of 1824-25, and amplified by Lafayette himself, who was a skillful manager of his own image. French and American officials have deployed his romanticized figure to promote understanding, forge new diplomatic or economic partnerships, or to curb hostility between the two nations ever since. More than two centuries later, Marquis Gilbert Du Motier de La Fayette is still an important link between France and USA.

On this tour, we will trace Lafayette’s legacy across both sides of the Atlantic. Walk in his footsteps, visit his ancestral homes, and deepen your understanding of the enduring “special relationship” between France and America embodied by this one remarkable historical figure.
