The UNH program in Prato provides students with several accompanied excursions throughout Tuscany. The Tuscany Campus staff coordinates transport and organizes all entries and tours, and Dr. Murphy accompanies the group to explain about all the monuments and sights throughout the day.
Famed for its marvelous scenery, Tuscany's landscape combines colorful rolling hills, ancient villas, historic cities, monasteries and Chianti vineyards. Rich in history, encompassing the ancient and modern, an excursion anywhere in this great region is a delightful discovery. You’ll be able to explore the protected nature reserves of Maremma; journey to the famous seaside resorts of Versilia; wander through the historic hill-towns of Siena and San Gimignano to the once great seaport of Pisa; admire the view from the stunning cliffs of the Cinque Terre or bask in the stately charm of Lucca. Tuscany has something for everyone!
Here is a selection of day trips offered in past semesters. Please note that day trips vary from semester to semester; the trips offered during your stay in Prato are subject to change.
