for Students

Study Tours

Some of these courses begin on campus in the U.S. and then deepen their exploration on the ground in Italy for about a week. Other groups come together only abroad for a weekend, a week or a month to engage with the Italian art of enjoyment from a variety of thematic perspectives such as cooking, style, agriculture, food culture, and art.
