Lawrence University’s Björklunden is sponsoring a trip to Italy, Oct. 18-28. Ancient Romans took the famous Via Appia when they headed south for the seasonal pleasures of the Bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast. Trip-goers will take the A1 autostrada, which links some of the biggest cities on the west coast of Italy.
The Amalfi Coast is a place to relax, enjoy the sunshine and splendid views of the sea, explore the isle of Capri, and take one of the most beautiful but harrowing drives anywhere. Visit two of the most important archaeological sites in the Roman world and then it’s off to Sicily. Visit Taormina and see Mt. Etna, an active volcano. Then have a half-day in Rome.
Registration deadline is July 16. For a complete trip description and fee list, visit lawrence.edu/s/bjorklunden.
