Program Description

Academic Journey to Ancient Greece and Rome, Renaissance Florence and Revolutionary France
Our pioneer program on Western Civilization is designed for adventurous students who are eager to learn first-hand the origins and evolution of Western thought, culture and art. The program follows the path of Western Civilization from the Ancient Greeks to the Ancient Romans, continuing to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and, finally, to the Enlightenment. The program will take you to Athens, Rome, Siena, Florence and Paris for the trip of a lifetime.
HOUSING : While in Athens, Rome, and Paris, the group will live in centrally located hotels and enjoy meals at local restaurants. During your week in Florence, you will enjoy a relaxing break from hotel living while staying in a modern apartment residence. Each apartment includes a loft, living room, kitchen, bathroom and access to the
residence’s breathtaking private terrace. You will live as true Italians during this unforgettable week, shopping at local markets and learning to prepare traditional
Florentine meals.
AIR TRAVEL: For information on purchasing tickets for our chaperoned flights from JFK please contact our main office.
DAY TRIPS : Day trips to Nafplio, Mycenae, Pompeii, Siena, Cinque Terre, Versaille, Le Marais will complement the academic program.


During this introduction to the history of Western Civilization, lovers of philosophy, art history, archeology and mythology trace the evolution of Western thought, history and culture from Ancient Greece to Revolutionary France. The cities are our classroom, and each lesson takes place on-location. You will discuss Athenian daily life at the ancient agora right underneath the Acropolis, walk in Caesar’s footsteps in the Roman Forum, marvel at Michelangelo in Florence’s Piazza della Signoria and review Louis XIV’s idea of Absolutism while sitting in the gardens of Versailles.
