A study abroad program to Italy offers a singular opportunity to visit the sites associated with life of Galileo, and the trials of Galileo by the Church of Rome in the 1600s. Visiting these historic sites in Rome, Florence, Pisa, and Venice, will be most relevant for the PHIL 344 course (Science & Religion), but studying in Italy also has relevance for the PHIL 204 course, World Religions, as the cultural and historical richness of Italy provides a vivid backdrop for studying Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and other of the great world religions. Moreover, while in Rome, we’ll visit the Vatican, the headquarters of the Church of Rome (the largest Christian tradition) and we’ll visit the Great Synagogue of Rome. Rome is home to the oldest Jewish community in Europe.

The Program Fee includes housing, all program-related events and excursions, some meals, in-country transportation and international medical insurance.

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 Rome. 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, plane tickets have been reserved for the group, and students are strongly encouraged to purchase as part of the group reservation.

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.
