    Overview

    If you are interested in delving into the tombs of the lost Etruscan civilization and then unearthing your way back through the ruins of Rome, Sparta, and Athens, then this program is for you.

    As you walk in the footsteps of great military leaders like Julius Caesar, Pompeii, and Augustus, you discover how their ruthless tactics of power politics are both revered and reviled to this day. Connections between the blood sports of the Colosseum to modern MMA fighting lead to a comparison of the athletic competitions of Ancient Olympia to the modern-day Olympics. Each day, we map human connections to our past as we discover how the ideas of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle laid the foundation for our modern thought. Explore how the plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides established the storyboards to today’s box office hits.

    We visit:

    - Florence

    - Siena

    - Rome

    - Pompeii, Tolo, Langadia

    - Athens

    - Mykonos
