An announcement arrived today from the Ecce Romani folks!
"Plan to be a part of the next tour designed just for teachers, historians, and all those interested in the ancient Roman world – July 2-11, 2009. The itinerary is based on the textbook series ‘Ecce Romani’ and will follow the Cornelii family from the Bay of Naples to Rome, visiting major places of interest. Whether or not you use ‘Ecce’, this trip is a chance for in-depth learning, and an opportunity to preview places that you might like to revisit with your own student group. Of special interest to AP teachers will be visits to Cumae, the Phlegraean Fields and Lake Avernus. Complete details and full schedule can be found at www.insideitalytours.com.
Patsy Ricks of Inside Italy Tours, and Caroline Switzer Kelly, Ecce teacher and author/consultant of Ecce Romani 2009 will be your guides. College Credit and CEUs will be available.
COST: $2980 – includes all travel and admissions in Italy; all meals in Campania; all breakfasts in Rome. (This price does not include airfare to and from Italy, transport to and from the Rome airport and single supplements. It is based on the current dollar-euro exchange rate and 15 participants.)
If you have further questions email Caroline at caroline.kelly [at] earthlink.net"
