Journey to Apulia and explore this fascinating, less-explored corner of Italy. Over the centuries this region has witnessed the ebb and flow of foreign armies and settlers, many of which imprinted their cultures on Apulia. Settle in the town of Polignano a Mare perched above the sparkling Adriatic. Begin your journey of discovery during an excursion to the vibrant seaport of Bari and its Basilica of St. Nicholas. Gaze at Lecce’s baroque architecture and Ostuni’s trove of ancient walls and white edifices. On a scenic excursion to Trani, visit historic highlights and a family olive mill. Explore the unusual Trulli of Alberobello, and wander through Locorotondo’s tranquil streets. Visit the Sassi di Matera, an extensive cave-dwelling district where troglodyte settlements once lived. Local guides and expert speakers provide fascinating insight during included excursions and interactive talks. This Alumni Campus Abroad program includes first-class accommodations, engaging excursions, educational programs and an extensive meal plan including wine with dinner.
