Canceled - Mediterranean: June 2020

Mediterranean Culture of Food & Hospitality

We regret this trip has been canceled.

We will begin our journey in the historic Tuscan hilltop town of Volterra, Italy with a food and wine focused course, CUA 246 Tuscan Culture and Cuisine. Here we study and visit producers of pasta/grains, wine, olive oil, cheese, agritourismos, and restaurants.

All producers operate with either biodynamic or organic practices and make interesting case studies for Americans looking to study production. As the majority of the Italian economy is based on tourism, there is much to learn from the area and the SIAF campus will house, feed, and transport us to our daily activities.

To further study other areas of culinary and hospitality in the Mediterranean, we will board the Celebrity Infinity at the Venice, Italy port and explore the industry in Split, Croatia, Dubrovnik, Croatia, Corfu, Greece, Naples, Italy, and we will disembark at the port in Civitavecchia, Rome.

Each day a presentation by one of the ships leaders will provide students with a global leadership perspective with special insight to the hospitality industry.
