Enjoy the culture and cuisine of France, admire the architecture and history of Rome, lose yourself in the Canal Belt of Amsterdam, and delight in the emerging nature of Prague. This program utilises the cities themselves as your classroom, also utilising local experts and guides to provide authentic insight into what makes each city unique (and also similar) in their status as European hubs of art and culture.
This study tour will showcase some of the best of Europe and students will explore the cities’ culture and urban settings from the late nineteenth-century through to contemporary times.
