Take a break
The John Felice Rome Center offers educational travel excursions each semester and during summer sessions. Trips vary in length, ranging from one day to as many as ten days. Each excursion is accompanied by a faculty and/ or staff member with expertise in the area of sites visited. The itineraries are prepared with both academic and cultural interests in mind.
Classical Greece: This JFRC tradition includes stops in Athens, the island of Mykonos, and archaeological sites, such as the Acropolis, Delphi, and Sparta.
Northern Ireland: Conflict resolution is a growing field of study. Explore how and why religious, ethnic, and cultural differences underlie conflict in Northern Ireland through a visit to Derry, Northern Ireland -- and how to build lasting peace.
Tuscany: Discover the Italian countryside, vineyards, and olive groves and and also visit the historic city of Siena.

How to register for a Study Trip
- Sign-up for all study trips will take place in Rome after arrival at the JFRC.
- Due to limited space, trips will be decided on a first-come, first-served basis. Students can sign up for study trips only after classes start. At that time, students may sign up for only ONE study trip. Depending on availability, students may be given the opportunity to sign up for additional trips at a later time. More details on how to register for the study trips will be provided during orientation in Rome.
- Students pay for all Study Trips in the JFRC Business Office. Credit cards are accepted. All relevant information regarding these trips will be posted on the Study Trips section of the Blackboard website. Please use this as your main Study Trips resource.
- Please note: Fall semester study trips will differ from the spring study trip offerings
Students in need of financial assistance in order to participate in certain group travel opportunities may be invited by the Associate Dean of Students to apply for a Forza Roma scholarship, funds generously contributed for this purpose by JFRC Alumni. Students may contact Cynthia Bomben, Associate Dean of Students, for details.
