Study Abroad with DCAD in Rome, Paris and Florence- Summer 2015 

DCAD's first trip overseas is on its way! We will be leaving in the summer of 2015  for Rome, Paris, and Florence. This trip is open to DCAD students, faculty, alumni, staff, and their immediate family. The price for all eleven days of the trip includes transportation and accommodations as well as breakfast each day and three dinners. The price also includes a full-time tour director that will travel with the group, six guided tours and entrance into twelve different sights/museums.  Full insurance (medical, cancelation, travel) is included the price as well. In short, other than the fee for the trip you will need to cover any souvenirs you would like, lunches, eight dinners, and tips for our tour guides. 

During this tour, we will experience new cultures and visit important landmarks and museums such as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Pantheon, Vatican City, Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, the Accademia, and the Louvre, just to name a few. This is a great opportunity to get to see, first hand, much of the art studied here at DCAD.
