A truly unforgettable adventure

Embrace la bella vita–the good life–in Italy next summer. There is no better way to visit Tuscany and Rome than by taking advantage of Stanford contacts forged over 50 years of the University’s landmark Bing Overseas Studies Program in Florence. Gain insider access to monuments and museums, led by outstanding guides and faculty leader Emanuele Lugli.

Experience traditional Tuscan life firsthand during a four-night stay at a 13th-century castello in the fortified village of Gargonza, lovingly restored by our hosts, the Guicciardini family. Take your trackside seat at the legendary Palio in Siena—an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Top it off with a dazzling stay in Rome with an unhurried, after-hours visit to the Vatican Museums’ restored Sistine Chapel, free of the usual crowds.
