Discover the workplaces of famous artisans. Learn about designers in the Italian fashion industry. Appreciate first-hand the role of food in Italian culture. Live like a Medici in our residence just steps away from the Duomo. Sometimes the best lessons are found in everyday moments.
Hike the coastal trails of Cinque Terre from one cliff-hugging village to the next. Ride a gondola through the canals of Venice. Swim the majestic green waters and grottos on the Isle of Capri. Spend the day at the chic beach resort town of Positano. Italy knows just what to do.
Explore the ruins of Pompeii. Imagine gladiators in the Coliseum. Discover the ancient treasures of the Pantheon and Forum. Visit Vatican City and enormous St. Peter’s Square. And picture Michelangelo painting the famous ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. You’ll never want to say arrividerci.
Since ancient times, Italy has been at the center of history, culture, and art. A deep history with a profound love of modern life. Italy is home to a staggering number tourist wonders of our world—UNESCO World Heritage Sites, churches, forts and castles. Countless museums and archaeological sites. Historic monuments and beloved renowned paintings. And the physical landscapes are exceptional, too. Beaches, mountains, and with thousands of miles of incredible coastline, the sea. Charming rustic towns, fascinating urban centers, and romantic cities. Delicious world-famous cuisine and perfect espressos. A love of life that is moving and infectious. Italians like to appreciate the finer things in life. And Italy has many fine things to be appreciated.
Art, fashion, ancient sites, beaches and of course the food are all a given. Gelato anybody? It’s for you to decide what group size suits you most. And do you prefer to push your adventure side, want to include study or see more of Europe once overseas?
I really enjoyed Perugia, Italy because I was able to experience Italian culture in a place that was not “touristy”. WCC/360 planned good daytime activities to balance fun with sightseeing and historical activities.”
I feel like the luckiest 16 year old in the world to have been able to have gone to so many amazing European countries. I LOVED Sorrento, Capri, and Positano. I had the best time.”
