Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

The research is focused on the archaeological excavation of Sanisera and it studies what happened in this Roman port connected to the maritime traffic that sailed the Mediterranean during those times. As a result, we know that this is a very interesting archaeological site, with abundant findings of multiple artifacts that will help us to reconstruct its past.

For the second part of the course, the Field Program has scheduled an archaeological tour around Paris. This tour will have a duration of five days and explanations will be in English.

The Louvre Museum is the national museum of France dedicated to art and archaeology. It is one of the most important of the world and the most visited of all of them. The museum is located in Paris (France), in the old Louvre Palace. Its collection includes works such as The Mona Lisa, by Leonardo da Vinci; Egyptian art, such as The Seated Scribe; and the famous Classical Venus de Milo, one of the most representative statues from the Hellenistic period, and one of the most famous sculptures from Ancient Greece.
