The Genoa study abroad program offers the unique opportunity to experience life in an Italian city with a rich history and proud cultural heritage. Students will engage in a full immersion journey to discover the wonders of Italian art, hospitality and foods. Genoa becomes the lens through which the students observe a variety of issues and develop new perspectives. This three-week study abroad program is designed for students who are interested in Hospitality and Tourism studies.
Academic Group TravelStudents will take part in several group trips. All of our trips are academically focused and since they are a required component of the program students may not opt out. The schedule includes day trips to historical sites and places of interest within the region and directly connected to the course themes and overnight travels to Florence, Rome, Lucca, Cinque Terra, and Pisa.
FacilitiesOur academic facilities are located in the medieval monastery of S. Maria di Castello, in the oldest part of Genoa’s old city (UNESCO historical site). Our facilities are nestled between ancient cloisters and beautiful gardens and offer amazing views of the port of Genoa and the Alpi mountains. Wi-fi is available (bring your own device).
