Program Notes
Program Description

Study the Renaissance in Italy, where it all began. Follow in the footsteps of Dante, Botticelli, and the Este family, as you learn in and about the beautiful cities of Florence and Ferrara. Visit the world famous Uffizi Gallery, UNESCO world heritage sites, and the magnificent Duomo of Florence as we explore the vibrant and historical world of the Italian Renaissance.

Based in Florence and Ferrara, you’ll immerse yourself in the Renaissance world, a world that envelopes you when you enter these well-preserved cities. You’ll read Dante, Boccaccio, and Machiavelli, then visit the places where they lived and worked. You’ll investigate the scheming power players of the Italian Renaissance, the Sforza, Este, & Borgia families (among others) and explore the spaces that they battled over, both in war and through marriages. Of course, you will have many opportunities to delight in espresso, pizza, and gelato as you delve deeply into the Renaissance. This winter session program typically takes a variety of excursions including trips to Siena, Modena, and Ravenna.

Students interested in history, culture, or Italy will find much of interest in this Winter Session in Florence and Ferrara. These beautiful Italian cities are a living laboratory in which we can capture some of what it was like to live, learn, and work during the Italian Renaissance. They are also incredibly accessible, livable, and navigable cities, allowing students to become familiar with Italian culture and lifestyle. In addition, students will have an extraordinary opportunity to visit some of the most remarkable historic and artistic sites in Europe.

The Program Fee includes housing, some meals, academic and cultural excursions and international medical insurance. Students will reside in hotel rooms (2-4 students per room). The hotels are well located in regards to transportation and historical sites. Breakfasts will be provided at the hotels and other meals will be provided as indicated on the course schedule (welcome dinner, farewell dinner, lunch during excursions outside of base cities).

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Italy, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Italy. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
