UGA Classics in Rome
Rome, the Eternal City, is a city of living history. To walk among the city's storied ruins, winding streets, fountains, palaces, and churches is to walk through the pages of history and encounter famous emperors, saints, and artists, but also the ancient Romans unknown to us who filled the seats of the Colosseum, walked the Sacred Way in the Roman Forum, enjoyed the Roman Baths, and witnessed history in the making since its founding in 753 BCE. Join UGA faculty to experience unique tours and visits to Rome's most iconic sites and monuments.
Rome, with its rich history, will be our home for most of the program, but we will take two multi-day trips to: the Bay of Naples area in Campania to visit the famous ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum, various villas buried by the eruption of Vesuvius; the Greek temples in Paestum, and the Archaeological Museum of Naples and to Pienza and Florence in Tuscany, birthplace of the Renaissance. We will also take day trips to the Etruscan sites of Cerveteri and Tarquinia to explore Etruscan tombs and art, to Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este, famous for its garden and fountains, in Tivoli, and to the ancient port city of Ostia Antica.
