We will see all the major archaeological sites, some museums where artifacts like the Dead Sea Scrolls are kept, the plants and animals, and even raft over some rapids in the Jordan River if you want.

Short Desc. Try to keep up with Dr. Copland while learning that all roads lead to…Rome!
Long Desc. There is nothing quite like studying the most influential letter ever written in the place where it was received. Paul understood as a Roman citizen what Roman culture was like and crafted a letter to help the Christians there understand their faith and respond in gratitude. We will see the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Mamertine Prison where Paul was kept before his execution, the actual location of the house of Priscilla and Aquila where the letter was first read. We will also visit Pompeii and Herculaneum to see what an ancient Roman city was like and imagine the lives of the people there. We will also visit the Vatican Museum, St. Peter’s Basilica, and other important monuments. In Florence, Michelangelo’s life and art will be explored in museums, churches, and buildings of THE Renaissance city.
