From sorrento, Pisa, Assisi, Rome, Venice, and more, students travel all over Italy for class trips!
Pisa & Lucca
January 31, 2020
Today's #FeatureFriday is about our trip to Pisa and Lucca! Leaving early morning to tackle the day, we first stopped in Pisa to tour the Leaning Tower, Piazza del Duomo, Cattedrale di Pisa, along with some cute coffee shops! We learned why the tower is leaning: because it was built on poor soil, leading the tower to lean. Next, we visited Lucca. A small town where its old, city walls still remain. After eating and looking around Lucca we made it home to Arezzo! #OUinArezzo #OUASpring20

October 12, 2019

In Italy you never really leave paradise
By: Sean Lindsey, fall 2019
The OU in Arezzo staff and Fall 2019 class has had a busy week. The festivities started off with a memorable weekend visit to Pompeii, Sorrento, and the Island of Capri. Our students and staff spent Friday touring the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. While there, the tour guide explained how the tragedy of the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 C.E. preserved the once-thriving metropolis allowing it to be transformed into an open-air museum.
UNESCO Site of Siena
July 25, 2019
Microbiology students spent a beautiful day in Siena! The historic center of Siena is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Siena is known for its art, museums, landmarks, and the Palio, a horse race held twice a year. It’s also know for St. Catherine of Siena, which the students also learned about today.
Hilltop city of assisi
July 26, 2019
Art and Artifice students enjoyed beautiful Assisi today, located in the Umbria region. Student Juliana said, “Assisi was a wonderful hilltop city where we got to see the Basilica of San Francesco, which was by far my favorite church we’ve seen!”
