Program Description
Participating students will experience on-site study in such places as Venice, Paestum, Capri, Syracuse, Palermo, Ostia, Florence, and of course Rome. A full day in Pompeii and Herculaneum offers a unique learning experience among the ruins of towns destroyed by Mount Vesuvius' devastating volcanic eruption of AD 79. In Paestum, we examine the remains of several temples, students see first-hand evidence of the Greek presence in southern Italy. Then we cross from Reggio, Calabria, into Sicily, where we study the fascinating world of Magna Graecia, from Syracuse to Agrigento, Selinunte, and Palermo. The sights, sounds, monuments, and places you visit when you are in Italy become the classroom. In this academic program, you will take notes on site, observe actual excavations, and visit places usually closed to the general public.

And what about fun? While we do have a fine study itinerary, free time is also scheduled in for touring, shopping, and fun in the Italian sun.

All accommodations in Italy are superb. The Hotel Sant' Anna in Rome, just a short walk from St. Peter's Basilica, is a beautifully renovated building. It offers an extremely convenient location for travel within the city. In Paestum and Palermo, the hotels are located right on the beach, affording afternoon and evening dips in the Mediterranean.
