Grand Tour

Grand Tour of Monuments of Ancient Italy
The program begins with a magnificent Grand Tour of some of most spectacular archaeological sites of Roman and Greek life in southern Italy. In Rome, we focus our attention on the public buildings erected by the Emperors: basilicas, temples, baths, theaters, and the amphitheater (the Colosseum). In Ostia, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Stabiae, and Paestum, moving around private houses and public spaces, visiting temples, baths, theaters, and palaestras we experience the life of a Roman city while carefully exploring its technology. Throughout our visits, we compare aspects of technology in a small provincial setting (Pompeii and Herculaneum), in the imperial trade center (Ostia), and in the Greek ruins in Paestum.
