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 Tuscania programs. All excursions are subject to change.

Spring

AMALFI COAST: POMPEII, SORRENTO, CAPRI

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.

AREZZO

Located in southeastern Tuscany, Arezzo sits atop a hill at the crossroads of four valleys: Val Tiberina,Casentino, Valdarno and Valdichiana. Each of these, comprising unique landscapes where natural beauty blends harmoniously with historic heritage and masterpieces of art. Nature and a thousand years of man’s labor come together to create a millenary masterpiece that never ceases to astonish and enchant. Its Medieval center still offers plenty of monuments, churches and museums to give visitors a chance to step back into history. Great Italian artists such as Piero della Francesca, Masaccio, Michelangelo and Vasari all left signs of their creativity and genius in Arezzo.

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.

ROME

With an almost uninterrupted history as an important center of power for more than two millennia, Rome is as close to eternal as it gets. Located on the River Tiber, between the Apennine Mountains and the Tyrrhenian Sea, the “Eternal City” was once the administrative center of the mighty Roman Empire, governing a vast region that stretched all the way from Britain to Mesopotamia. Today it remains the seat of the Italian government. One must be prepared to step into the world’s biggest open air museum – the Vatican, the Coliseum, the neighborhoods – and be enraptured.

SIENA

Siena, the city famous for its Palio and listed as World Heritage by UNESCO for its singular artistic heritage, was a proud, wealthy, and warlike independent city-state during the Middle Ages. Located in the heart of Tuscany, Siena is built on three hills, maintaining its medieval appearance, a magnificent city of art with characteristic alleys, wards and towers, artisan shops and noble buildings. Built on three hills, it is not difficult to find a terrace from which admire the surroundings made by dense woodlands, clay hills and magnificent paths. Ever since the Middle Ages the center of everyday life of Siena has been Piazza del Campo in Siena, one of the most beautiful Piazza in the world.
