Italy/Greece Study Abroad

😙Hey everybody!  It has always been my dream to travel around the world.  In fact, one of the only things I'd like to do (other than be a filmmaker) is travel, so when the opportunity to travel came up with my school, I wanted to go for it!  One of many reasons I want to travel is to expand my worldview.  It's one thing to watch a movie or read about another country and a whole other thing to experience another country.  Some of the stories I've heard of others studying abroad is that it was a culture shock and the most enlightening experience.  I am SUPER prepared for cultural shock and enlightenment, folks!  I've got until the middle of April to turn in money for the trip to be able to go.  I've got all I need for this trip except one thing:Il denaro (italian)τα χρήματα (greek)money (english)Any contribution you make would be greatly appreciated!  You can donate anything from $1 to however much you want.The price is high but it includes the round trip ticket, the hotel for two weeks, all transportation around the cities, 5 sightseeing tours led by expert local guides in Rome; Vesuvius; Pompeii; Delphi; Athens, entrances into the Sistine Chapel; St. Peter's Basilica; Colosseum; Roman Forum; Vesuvius; Ruins of Pompeii; Delphi site; Delphi Museum; Acropolis, and a full time tour director.   And this is where we will be going!Day 1: Fly overnight to ItalyFly overnight to Italy Day 2: RomeArrive in Rome Day 3: RomeTake a guided tour of Vatican City Visit the Sistine Chapel Visit St. Peter’s Basilica Take a guided tour of Rome Visit the Colosseum Visit the Roman Forum Take a walking tour of Rome: Trevi FountainPantheon Spanish StepsDay 4: RomeOptional: Florence by train Of the many unifying wonders found throughout the European Union, the high-speed rail network may be the most impressive.
