13 days
Germany, Italy
Farm-to-table may be trending in the United States, but Italy has always been a leader in the art of fresh, regional cuisine. Before taste-testing Italian culture, kick off your trip in Berlin by coming together with other students and teachers to explore The Impact of Sports & Wellness around the world. Then, journey through picturesque Italian cities as you consider how sourcing and eating organic, local ingredients can make a big difference in our overall health and wellness. Visit historic sites, explore the importance of nutrition, and sample gelato along the way (because life is all about balance).
