This program is a “dream come true” for students from diverse backgrounds in foods and nutrition. Follow University of Georgia students on their nutritional tour of Greece and Italy. They get emersed in the culture and food by spending time in beautiful cities including Athens, Rome, Siena, Florence, Verona, and Bologna and by sampling the regional diversity in the food culture firsthand.

Some of the exciting planned excursions and activities include visits to the Parthenon, Coliseum, walking tours of Florence, Verona, Sienna and more. Students will tour a winery, an oil mill, a Parmigiano cheese dairy, a balsamico producer, attend a cooking classes with gourmet chefs and visit local food markets.

In April, students from Maryville College spent two weeks in Greece enjoying breathtaking views, touring museums, and analyzing sculptures and many great pieces of architecture from the height of the Greek civilization.

Through guided visits, independent explorations, organized events, and personal interviews students were exposed to Greek culture from antiquity to the modern day.

We had such an amazing experience. There is no doubt that CEPA is providing top-notch service in value and activities. Professional, flexible, adaptable, and very personable – throughout (initial contact, planning, pre-arrangements, and during).  CEPA representatives were so accommodating to me, as a first time organizer and the program went so smoothly!!

Thank you for all the work that you have done at your end to make this happen! I’m super excited to start planning for 2021.

Italy has a rich cultural history and entrepreneurial heritage, so it is also a great place for innovation and start-ups.

The IB495 class at the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Collat School of Business spent one week in Italy exploring Bologna, Sant’Agata, Verona, Grezzana, and Milan.

The study abroad program focussed on the evaluation of the environment for innovations and entrepreneurs. It provided an insight into the culture, history, and economy of Italy. During multiple visits to businesses from the automotive, financial, architectural, as well as the food and agricultural sector students gained a stronger awareness and better understanding of Italy’s business climate and the resaons why Italy continues to be a great destination for innovation and entrepreneurship.
