Take the rare opportunity to explore the rich history and culture of Rome and Florence with a cohort of like-minded participants. The intimate class sizes will allow you to submerge yourself into an in-depth study of Plato’s Symposium, surrounded by monuments of antiquity from the Platonic era. Or, if you choose to study Latin, your classroom will be extended to the streets where the stones speak this language. Your daily guided tours, which are thoroughly tailored for the courses and run exclusively for the program participants, will show you the Eternal City through the eyes of the ancient writers to ensure a truly unique experience.

Campion College Australia will hold this two and a half week program at St. John’s University campus in Rome, located within walking distance from Vatican City, and in Florence. The program will include a combination of lectures and tutorials, along with guided tours of all main attractions in the two major Italian cities.
