Excursions

API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of their host city, country, and surrounding region. The following is a listing of all excursions for API Rome programs. All excursions are subject to change.

Summer 1

FLORENCE

Florence is a city that welcomes visitors, artists and students to walk its streets, to relive past discoveries in the arts and sciences and to glimpse the rich history that permeates every inch of the city. Florence is situated on the banks of the Arno River, surrounded by rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. Some of the medieval artisan traditions are still alive today, as seen in the daily open-air markets. API introduces students to the sights, sounds and art that embrace a visitor at every turn in the flowering city of Florence.

LAZIO AND UMBRIA: OFF THE BEATEN PATH

The charming land in central Italy between Lazio, Umbria, and Tuscany is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, and green hills with paths that link lovely ancient villages perched on cliffs overlooking untouched landscapes. Medieval towers and cathedrals, small dwellings fashioned out of colored sone, artisan shopping,  picturesque  family-run taverns, dot  the surrounding green valleys and offer a perfect glimpse of a life without hustle and bustle.

Summer 2

AMALFI COAST/ENCHANTING ISLES

In the region of Campania, thousands of years of history and myth, exceptional natural beauty and vibrant, colorful towns coexist in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. The volcano dominates the region and overlooks the Amalfi Coast, with its rocky cliffs dotted with towns such as Sorrento, offering great shopping and dining as well as breathtaking sea views. The ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, at once destroyed and preserved by a volcanic eruption in 79AD, reveal ancient Roman life, while the enchanting islands of Capri and Ischia offer beautiful Mediterranean beaches and stunning scenery.
