Program Description:

Join us in Spoleto, Italy for our month-long program in travel writing and American literature.

The program fee includes everything from round trip airfare to our stay in the villa, from a long weekend in Florence to cooking classes, from tours of area wineries to day hikes in the Umbrian hills, rail passes for weekend travel (a must while in Italy!), and so much more. The two courses offered will offer you six (6) CofC credits and the experience of a lifetime. Learn more here:
