Register for European Study-Tour

March 31, 2008

Register for European Study-TourHistory Professor Marco Rimanelli will lead a study-tour of Athens, Delphi, Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, Amalfi, Florence, Rome and the Vatican in May 2008. The tour which is open to students, alumni, faculty, and staff, includes an audience with His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. SLU students can register to earn credit for the tour.

Dr. Rimanelli, a native of Rome and a dual citizen of the U.S. and Italy, studied at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies and is an expert on NATO and U.S.-European relations. He has guided Saint Leo students on study-tours of Europe each May for the past five years. "Everyone who has ever taken this trip has loved it," Dr. Rimanelli says. "There are guided tours during the day and the evenings are open to explore."

Travelers will visit historic sites, museums, and other points of interest, and dinner most days will include a topical presentation by a distinguished guest lecturer. The $4000 registration fee covers the cost of roundtrip airfare from Tampa, Florida, hotels, trains, breakfast and dinner, museums, and tour guides. Spending binges on Italian shoes, perfume and gelato are at the traveler's expense!
