Field trips are fantastico!

The USAC program in Viterbo, Italy includes field trips to amazing places. You experience the history, culture and beauty of Italy in a much deeper way than you would as a tourist. My next few posts will show our field trips. The field trips make the topics studied in classes “come alive”.

Our first field trip was to Rome, on Saturday May 31st. With the USAC field trips, you may stay longer and come back on your own. I stayed two nights in Rome.

Monday, June 2, was Italy’s Festa Della Repubblica, celebrating when Italians voted to oust the monarchy and become a republic, June 2, 1946. The royal family, who supported Benito Mussolini’s rule, was exiled.

Here are a few pics from Rome, the capital of Italy, and Vatican City, a separate nation.
