Compare your life on our island in the Atlantic Ocean to the largest of Italy's islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Discover the cities, the environment, the people and the ecosystems during this one week. This Global Learning program looks at Sicily from a biological, historical, artistic, environmental and sociological point of view. Study the Greek history of Syracuse and other eastern cities of the Sicilian coastline. Visit the capital, Palermo, founded by the Phoenicians in 734 BCE, whose cathedral, Monreale, is world renowned for its mosaics. The highlights include a climb up Mt Etna, a living volcano, a visit to the Capuchin Monastery to see their fascinating mummy collection and an opportunity to experience the wonderful Italian cuisine for which Sicily is well known.
