TUSCAN WEEKEND MARCH 1-3, JUNE 7-9, JULY 12-14, NOVEMBER 8-10
The Student Life weekend trips to Tuscany will take you to the fabled towns of Tuscany: Pisa, Florence, and Trequanda. From the world-famous tower of Pisa to the highly sophisticated medieval city of Florence, to the beautiful landscapes of Trequanda (our wine tasting destination), this trip is the perfect opportunity to discover the gems of Tuscany. 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.
The June and November Tuscan Weekends also include a visit to the town of Montecatini, famous for its thermal baths.
On the July Tuscan Weekend trip, the group will visit Siena instead of Pisa.
POMPEII WEEKEND APRIL 12-14, JUNE 14-16, JULY 19-21, OCTOBER 4-6
Join the Student Life crew for a new twist on our old classic and very popular trips to Capri and Pompeii! 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.
Pompeii: buried under ash and pumice and lost for over 1500 years, this Roman city frozen in time was rediscovered four centuries ago. Today this UNESCO World Heritage site offers extraordinary insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire.
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.
ASSISI DAY TRIP MARCH 30, NOVEMBER 23
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 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.
