Faculty-Led Travel Opportunities

Italy ~ May 10 - June 7, 2016

Italy Study Abroad Program

Information for the 2016 Italy Faculty-Led Program is here!

Italy is a country that stretches from Alpine Peaks to within 100 miles of Northern Africa. A long standing and popular destination for tourists, Italy is a vital and energizing laboratory for the study of geotourism and complex interaction between food and culture.

Using Castiglione Falletto as a base, you will explore rural culture in northern Italy with excursions to the Italian Riviera and Turin, the first capital of Italy.  There is also time for independent travel in small groups.
