Study Abroad

to Venice, Florence, & Rome

Italy Banner

If you ever wanted to travel but didn't know where to start, come travel with friends in comfort and safety.

Southern State is offering students (and alumni) an opportunity to travel abroad to Venice, Florence, & Rome in May 2018. Italy leaves no stone unturned–and no traveler underwhelmed. You'll see where Venetian dukes once ruled at Doge's Palace, stroll across the medieval Ponte Vecchio, and stand in the former epicenter of gladiatorial combat in the Colosseum. Renaissance artworks like Michelangelo's statue of David and Botticelli's The Birth of Venus bridge the Middle Ages with modern times, and reflect the flourish of enlightenment that occurred in Europe between the fourteenth and the sixteenth century.
