There are cathedrals, city palaces, intimate town squares, and breathtaking landscape views. This is the best way for you to become the most “cultivated” traveler and lover of the best of Italy.
The Student Life department provides you a chance to visit some of the historical and artistic treasures of these selected cities of Tuscany.
There will also be leisure time for wandering, shopping, individual discovery, and relaxation.
NAPLES, CAPRI, SORRENTO, AND POMPEII WEEKEND
Join the Student Life crew for a new twist on our old classic and very popular trips to Capri and Pompeii!
For the first time, we’ll be combining our trip to the beautiful Isle of Capri with a tour of the excavations at Pompeii, a walk around Naples as well as adding overnight stays in the town of Sorrento.
Naples: Italy's third-largest city is one of its oldest, most artistic and most appetizing. Naples' centro storico (historic center) is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Naples is where pizza was invented, and since the 19th century, the Neapolitans have raised it to a fine art!
Capri: magnificent coastal walks, flower-strewn mountain slopes and, of course, the shimmering blue Mediterranean sea with its natural wonders which include the magical Blue Grotto and Faraglioni.
Sorrento: on the Amalfi coast overlooking the Bay of Naples, this cliffside town offers spectacular views across the bay. It is also the home of limoncello.
Pompeii: buried under ash and pumice and lost for over 1500 years, this Roman city frozen in time was rediscovered 4 centuries ago. Today this UNESCO World Heritage site offers extraordinary insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire.
ASSISI DAY TRIP
This Student Life day excursion will take you to the beautiful town of Assisi: it represents an ensemble of masterpieces of human creative genius, such as the Basilica of San Francesco, which have made it a fundamental reference for art history in Europe and in the world. The interchange of the artistic and spiritual message of the Franciscan Order has significantly contributed to developments in art and architecture in the world. The Student Life department provides you a chance to visit the main historical and artistic treasures of Assisi. There will also be leisure time for wandering, individual discovery, and relaxation.
