Course-Based Trips

Trinity College Rome Campus students will have the opportunity to enroll in a course​ which offers a mandatory course-based academic trips.
  • Some courses have an academic trip component. These can be a day trip or an overnight weekend trip facilitated by a professor who works with local experts who have extensive knowledge of the relevant sights and locales.
  • All academic trips include ground transportation, organized tours, hotel accommodations and entrance fees (when applicable).
  • Academic trips include a pre-departure lecture to introduce students to the sites, their history and their current importance. Upon return, wrap-up sessions are conducted to help students consolidate what they have learned.
Below are examples of course trip locations.
Florence, Italy
The “Cradle of the Renaissance” and capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, Florence is home to masterpieces of art and architecture. Names from its dazzling historical past—Dante, Michelangelo, Donatello, Galileo, Machiavelli—are some of the most resonant of the medieval age. Art History courses.
Ravenna, Italy
A small, quiet, well-heeled city on the Adriatic coast, Ravenna has brick palaces, cobblestone streets, magnificent monuments, and spectacular Byzantine mosaics. The high point in civic history occurred in 402 A.D., when Ravenna became the capital of the Roman Empire prior to falling to Byzantine influence a century later. It looks much like any other Italian city at first glance, with old streets, fine shops and peaceful squares, but the Byzantine domes of its churches still evoke its Eastern heritage. Art History courses.
Torino, Italy
As a bustling urban center and Italy’s fourth largest city, Torino blends historic charm with big-city vitality. It has one foot in its regal Roman and Baroque past, and the other in its new role in global business and innovative design. Imagine the wide, tree-lined avenues and commercial pace of Paris coupled with the classic Italian “dolce vita”—complete with prize-winning cappuccino and locally-produced chocolate and wine. Cultural Studies courses.
