Program Description:

Voyager Europe is the expert in summer multi-country study abroad programs in Europe! Only Voyager Europe participants have a home-away-from-home in Europe, travel by plane or high-speed train and stay in highly-rated, city-center, hotels. Our participants are immersed in the art, history and culture of 6 countries and 12 cities including Madrid, Lisbon, Pisa, Florence, Venice, Rome, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam and Barcelona.

For the entire 30 days, participants have their own room in a modern, air-conditioned, residence with private bath and kitchenette in an upscale university neighborhood in Madrid. They have unlimited access to the on-premises fitness center, outdoor pool and laundry and are served their choice of breakfast and lunch or dinner daily in the onsite restaurant. This home-away-from-home concept is distinctive to our program. Since our participants do not check out when we travel, they do not need to travel from country to country with all their belongings. They can safely leave their personal possessions behind in their own room during the four multi-day trips from Madrid.
