Explore Italy during pre-session summer! Enroll in the pre-session course CLASSICS 310, Rome in Film, and attend class on campus or online. The course capstone experience is a visit to the splendors of Italy.
Site visits include Venice, Florence, Sorrento, Pompeii, and Rome. Arriving in Venice, we will visit the Doges Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica before traveling south to Florence, the jewel of the Renaissance, to see Michelangelo’s David and also the splendid Uffizi Gallery. From Florence, we travel to the charming coastal town of Sorrento for a long afternoon and evening. The next day we will visit the ruins at Pompeii en route to the center of the ancient world, Rome, where we spend three days that include visits to the Forum, Colosseum, Vatican Museums, and several other sites.
On our last evening, after watching the sunset over the Colosseum, we have a farewell dinner capped by a famous Roman gelato!
