A sample day in Salerno
The College’s Salerno program is packed with opportunities and excursions to enhance learning. Below is an example of just one of the awe-inspiring day trips.
A trip to Herculaneum
An archaeological site similar to Pompeii, Herculaneum is a smaller Roman city that was preserved when Vesuvius erupted in AD 79. The site harbors a wealth of archaeological treasures. During your visit you will:
- Walk ancient streets into houses with original building materials preserved by rock and ash from Vesuvius’s eruption
- Explore the thermopolium, lunch counters built to serve well-heeled Romans
- View original mosaics while you learn about their centuries-old history
- Discuss how Mount Vesuvius has left its mark on the Neapolitan region for millennia
