Explore the city of Rome and learn about its ancient history and monuments this summer. We will study the politics and culture of Rome from its earliest foundations on the Palatine hill to the triumph of the new religion of Christianity and the subsequent collapse of an empire almost 1200 years later. Daily walking excursions to the major archaeological and cultural sites of the Eternal City, including ancient ruins, museums, churches, piazzas, columns, and even Egyptian obelisks. A trip to Pompeii is also planned.The program is intended for mature and serious-minded students, capable of long walks in a hot and humid climate, who are eager to work hard and have fun.
