Rome to London

Faculty: Gary Spivey, Cliff Rosenbohm
Class Meeting: Tuesday, 6:30 - 9:00 PM


The study tour to Rome, Paris, and London will focus on the development of empires in western Europe. We will start our study tour in the capital of the Roman empire where we will visit sites 

including the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, the Vatican Museum, and St. Peter’s Cathedral. We will then travel to Florence to see Michelangelo’s David and to see the architecture of the Duomo. We will then continue on to Venice where we will learn more about the canals of Venice along with their construction and maintenance. 

Leaving Italy, we will take a quiet break in the Swiss Alps.

From here we will travel to Paris, France.  We will see the city from a boat tour of the Seine River to start our time in Paris.  We will spend time in Paris and will see sights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Tomb of Napoleon, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Palace of Versailles.   

We will then take a ferry over the English Channel so that we will have a view of the White Cliffs of Dover as we enter England.  While in Dover we will tour Dover castle and hike along the top of the White Cliffs where on a clear day we will have views of France across the Channel.  From Dover we will travel into London where we will see sites such as Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, London Bridge, Hampton Court, and the London Museum of Natural History. 

This trip will require a moderate to high level of walking every day.
