Italy Service Learning Trip 2012Date: Two Weeks in May 2012
Trip Leader: Ann Lawson
Cost: Approximately $3,000
Details: This trip will focus on the art and religion that typify Italian culture so we will be visiting several museums and churches. We will be based in Rome, staying at the Geneva College semester abroad facility in a convent. We will visit the Roman highlights of the Colosseum, Pantheon, Forum, Vatican and Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica, Christian catacombs and Trevi fountain. We will also take trips to Siena in Tuscany and Cinque Terre on the coast. Our service project with Rome Baptist Church is spending two days cooking, serving and talking with refugees from Afghanistan and Pakistan. There is a possibility we may include another side trip to either Florence, Pisa or Pompeii and there is also a possibility of third day of service.
