Setting Description:
Tuscania is a charming, medieval town nestled in the Italian hillside outside of Rome. A rich collection of Italian, Etruscan and church history, Tuscania in many ways seems untouched by time. Because of the city's smaller size, students are able to gain an authentic Italian cultural experience in this preserved city. Rome is one of the most historic locations on the planet, and is a cultural treasure chest of Christian, Medieval, Baroque and Renaissance influences. Rome is itself a piece of art that captures the journey from antiquity to modernity. Living in Florence, Italy is like living in one of the most artistically and culturally rich cities in the world. From the regal Renaissance and Medieval architecture of the buildings that line the city streets, to the priceless works of art that line the walls of the Uffizi gallery, beauty and culture surround you at every turn in this richly diverse city. Venice is the seemingly mythical "City of Water" in northeastern Italy.
