Discover the art and culture of Italy in five great cities:
Rome, Pompeii, Florence, Pisa, and Milan.
 Each day, we will visit monuments, archaeological sites, churches and world-class museums to experience masterpieces of Italian art in person. The philosophy portion of the program will have us asking questions about the political and social context in which these masterpieces were created, as well as become aware of how Italy's political system has changed over its long history. Highlights of the trip  will include the ancient Roman Colosseum, Michelangelo’s
, the leaning tower of Pisa, the Vatican & Sistine Chapel, and more.
