FGCU Renaissance Academy Travel Abroad Program - Southern Italy & Sicily 2012
Delight in a special exploration of Italy’s southern climes, from striking Sicily to the breathtaking Amalfi Coast to Apulia, the alluring “boot heel” where a vivid history, unique architecture, distinctive traditions, and bountiful plains join the sun and sea in creating a prized (and crowd-free) region. Explore Italy’s autonomous island region of Sicily, staying in lovely Taormina with excursions to Agrigento and Mt. Etna. Discover Lecce, the “Florence of the South,” and visit Alberobello, whose 400 or so trulli – conical houses with grey-stone roofs – rank as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
