Benvenuti in Italia! Meet your ACIS Tour Manager, settle in to your hotel at the heart of bustling, historic Rome and begin your Young Women’s Leadership Program. Perhaps practice your language skills by ordering una coppa gelato and enjoy people-watching in one of the city’s stunning piazzas. Later, you can mingle with café-goers around the Pantheon and Piazza della Rotonda.
Rome is called “The Eternal City” because the ancient Romans believed that no matter what empires rose and fell, Rome would endure forever. Today's panoramic drive of the city is a great introduction to the many phases of Roman history. Our local expert accompanies you through the Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica, giving commentary via personal headsets. These are timed entrances, meaning you’ll breeze right by the long lines facing other tourists. Then go inside the iconic and historic Colosseum with a local guide (another line-avoiding timed reservation) and learn the many stories of this nearly 2,000-year-old Roman landmark that’s considered one of the architectural wonders of the ancient world. In the afternoon your first leadership workshop has you meeting with the female head of a relief organization aimed at supporting and assisting immigrant women refugees, often coming from Africa or the Balkans.
This morning enjoy a Global Exchange focused on comparative learning and sharing dynamics at a local primary school. Meet with a female Italian educator and engage with the children while teaching them English (if traveling outside the school calendar, another leadership activity will be substituted). Continue the education theme in the afternoon during a leadership workshop with Emanuela Prinzivalli, Professor of the History of Christianity at Rome University. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss the impact of Pope Francis’ recent opening to the possibility of women becoming deacons in the Catholic Church. Tonight we’ll provide restaurant vouchers and suggestions for our favorite trattorias so you can dine like (and with) the locals. After, we’ll head out for a passeggiata romana around the Piazza Navona.View Full Itinerary Hide Full Itinerary
