On May 25, a handful of Villa students began a two-week study abroad program in Italy.

Under the direction of Interior Design Professor Sandra Reicis, students will visit San Marco and Doge’s Palace in Venice. Uffizi Gallery and Palazzo Pitti in Florence, the Colosseum and Borghese Gallery in Rome, the Vatican Museums, and Naples in Pompeii.

The three credit general course gives students the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse themselves in the Italian culture while visiting iconic landmarks. Stay tuned for more updates on our students’ Italian adventure!
