This exciting program uncovers the fascinating archaeology and history of Castiglione del Lago on the shores of Lake Trasimeno between Umbria and Tuscany. You will spend time working on the newly discovered ruins of a Roman Villa, in class with the professor, participating in extracurricular activities in Castiglione and Perugia and on academic field studies.
Castiglione del Lago is a charming medieval town in Umbria, located on top of a small peninsula along the southwestern shores of Lake Trasimeno. The town is a member of the prestigious I Borghi più Belli d’Italia Association (The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy) and lies among renowned historical cities, such as Orvieto, Chiusi, Arezzo, Cortona and Perugia.
You'll also participate in the Arcadia Italy Weekend: A tailored weekend trip for all Arcadia students coming to Italy to enhance a sense of belonging to the Arcadia community. Students will explore hidden areas of Italy (among the Abruzzo, Marche or Romagna's countryside) that are off the beaten tracks and authentic.
The weekend will provide walking tours, cultural activities and food experiences to immerse students in the Italian culture. It will also be an opportunity to create connections among students in different areas of Italy and encourage exchange visits in reciprocal cities.
