Program Information:
Let the historic treasure spaces of Italy and Spain be your classroom this January. Travel and learn on this three week educational journey through some of the most beautiful sites in Barcelona, Rome, and Florence. Your professor will share unique perspectives of history as you travel through the spaces where famous events unfolded.

Here's what to expect while on this amazing program:
  • Three weeks in some of Europe’s most beloved cities: Rome, Florence, Barcelona
  • Packed with learning experiences beyond the classroom
  • Visit world-famous sites, from the Colosseum to Montserrat
  • Locally-focused course topics taught in English
  • Tight-knit travel group with fellow classmates and your professor
Location:
Considered the "Eternal City," Rome blends an exceptionally rich history with a vibrant contemporary culture. Revered equally by history buffs, culture vultures, and foodies, Rome has something (or more accurately, tons!) for everybody. There's no shortage of art galleries, museums, ruins, and gastronomic exploits (e.g. gelato) to make the most of your time. And don't forget to make time for general idling, people-watching, and exploring Rome's diverse neighborhoods.

Florence (Firenze in Italian) is a culturally vibrant city located in the heart of Italy’s Tuscany region. Around every corner you’ll encounter jaw-dropping architecture, like the terra-cotta-domed Florence Cathedral. The mild weather makes it ideal for exploring the city on foot—we recommend getting lost so you can meander the streets and interact with the friendly locals. The best way to experience Florence is simply to wander through its wonders. This is how you'll find the hidden gems not mentioned in any guidebook.

Barcelona also enjoys a bit of Roman heritage, most evident in its languages (both "Castilian" Spanish and Catalan) and architecture. A large and vibrant metropolis with a rich and alluring culture, Barcelona is anything but a sleepy seaside city. Tourists and locals alike adore the social and artistic buzz that permeates Barcelona - in its plentiful plazas, boardwalks, distinct neighborhoods, funky architecture, and pristine beaches. The second-largest city in Spain, Barcelona is unique in that it blends the bustling nature of a large city with an emphasis on the "life" side of "work-life" balance (the beaches probably don't hurt in that regard...).
