Students learn more from ten days of traveling in Europe than they ever would from classroom reading assignments, term papers and discussions. Leaning against a pillar in dark Notre Dame while admiring the great Rose Window, wandering among the statuary and memorials of French kings and queens who have rested at St. Denise for a thousand years or more, surveying all of historic Paris from atop the Eiffel Tower, looking to see if there really is an orb missing from a Westminster monument, and seeing how many students will fit in a traditional big red British telephone booth are experiences not offered in the classroom.
The London/Paris/Florence/Rome tour of European capitals, historic sites such as Buckingham Palace, the Eifel Tower, the Louvre, and the Roman Coliseum, and cathedrals (Westminster, Notre Dame, El Duomo and The Vatican) is included in the tour.
The cost of the trip is in addition to university course tuition. Also, all persons traveling with the Cathedrals class must have a valid U.S. Passport at the time of departure from Louisville and all Cathedrals travelers, whether taking the course and/or taking the tour only, must purchase an $20.00 accident policy through USI that covers them outside the United States. Almost no standard accident/health insurance policy covers its holder outside of U.S. borders. As one ad slogan advises: Don’t leave home without it!
Ask Mr. Jeffers about travel particulars. The departure date is Tuesday, May 15, 2012. Per EF Tours, that departure date (from Louisville) may move forward or backward as much as two days.
Total fees: $3187 plus money for purchases, souvenirs, and optional outings.
EF tour number: 1052742
Margaret Skoglund will be offering a tour to Turkey and Rhodes during Summer I of 2012
The tour will be for two weeks, and like all my other tours can be taken to earn credit or just for pleasure. Departure and return dates will be posted as soon as they are available. So stay tuned!
A complete itinerary is in the works. A rough draft of the tour is as follows:
All members of the university and Evansville communities are most welcome.
