Program Description:

Belmont in Italy



Belmont students in Italy

Visit Italy with an Italian! Travel to Italy with Professors Muccini and Anderson on a specially planned itinerary that combines two weeks in Florence with short residencies in Bologna and Rome and two weekends free for personal travel. Group day trips to Venice and Assisi will also be included.
Students will reside in private apartments in Florence with fully equipped kitchens, and in private hotels in Bologna and Rome. Depending on our location, you will reside two, three or four to an apartment or room. All residencies will be within short walking distance to grocery stores or central markets, restaurants, bus and taxi stops, train stations, and ATM machines.  The group will have several meals together with faculty during our travel in Italy, and a final dinner in Rome to celebrate the end of our trip.
During the weekends of our two-week stay in Florence you are encouraged to plan independent travel to nearby cities and towns. In Tuscany, easy connections by bus or train can be made to Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca or Cinque Terre. Regional destinations include Milan, Verona, Orvieto, Padua, Ravenna, or even Sicily.
Because of registration and reservation deadlines, absolutely no applications will be accepted past February 1, 2020. All students accepted for the 2020 program must commit to attending all three group orientation sessions.
