An exciting and extensive field trips program awaits you in Florence. Traveling to diverse locations throughout the Italian peninsula, you will be wowed by Italy's natural beauty, become immersed in the country's rich past and present, and discover how so many towns and cities became great centers of western art, architecture and culture. On any given weekend you may find yourself exploring archeological excavations in Pompei, walking deep into an Etruscan tomb, climbing the dome of the world's largest basilica, or floating down the Grand Canal of Venice.
Visits to historic monuments and contemporary museums, access to private openings, after-hour entrances, hands-on experiences and thought-provoking lectures are just part of what makes the SU Florence field trip program unique.
All-school field trips are open to all students not enrolled in the School of Architecture professional degree program and are offered multiple times to ensure that you have the chance to go on each trip at some time during the semester. All-school field trip costs are covered by your program fee.
Course-Related Field Trips
