*This Summer Travel Study Program will satisfy two courses for the major or minor in the Classics and History Department.* The program is organized as a daily walking tour – our classroom is the city itself. Along the way, we explore the old cattle market on the Tiber River, the Roman Forum, Colosseum, Trajan’s Markets, Pantheon, Mausoleum of Hadrian, St. Peter’s Basilica, and these are only the highlights. We also visit the major art museums like the Villa Giulia of Etruscan art, Palazzo Massimo, Capitoline Museums, Galleria Borghese (photograph above of current exhibition), and of course the Vatican! In the evenings, discover the city’s cafes, restaurants and bars. On our last night, throw your coin in the Trevi Fountain in the hope of your return to Rome. The program also includes a day trip to Tivoli and the villa of the Emperor Hadrian. A weekend trip takes us to the Bay of Naples, Pompeii, and, if you wish to stay longer, the island of Ischia.
