With beauty, history, art, architecture, food, wine, and culture, Italy offers the perfect setting for the study of many academic disciplines. Encompassing a legacy of genius in art and architecture that extends through every era from ancient to the most contemporary. Italy offers an excellent opportunity to experience the development of western art, civilization, society, and culture. 

The program begins in Tuscany, which is distinguished by rolling hills, snow-capped mountains, and dramatic cypress trees, providing gorgeous views at practically every turn.
