When in Rome...

Over Spring Break, 11 Country Day seniors visited the Eternal City on an experiential learning trip led by Latin teacher Dr. Kevin Gavin. With perfect weather, and fueled by pasta and espresso, students and chaperones hit the streets hard to the tune of about 10 miles a day. They saw all the major sites: the Colosseum, the Capitoline Museums, the Golden House, the Forum, the Borghese Gallery, the Vatican Museums, St. Peter's Basilica, the Trevi Fountain, as well as numerous other churches, fountains, piazzas, galleries, and monuments.

Students toured the spectacular ruins of the Baths of Caracalla, wandered beneath ancient churches and visited a pagan cult temple, and explored the hulking remains of Hadrian's Mausoleum. There was plenty of time for gelato, shopping, and people watching. What an incredible experience that these students are sure to cherish for years to come!
