The CAA's Traveling Classroom Explores the World

The CAA Alumni Travel Study Program goes around the world on thought-provoking sojourns.  Many trips include a faculty member or featured expert that makes these adventures a kind of traveling classroom for the curious mind.  

Featured Alumni Travel Study Trip: Join the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) on our remarkable journey to Sicily and the Amalfi Coast from May 31 to June 7, 2015. It is truly Italy at its very best. You will explore thousands of years of culture from the ancient Greeks, through Pompeii, right up to the modern pleasures of throwing your own pizza dough in a private cliff top home. Throughout, you will settle into lovely 4-star hotels, take leisurely walks on footpaths with breathtaking views, and meet the local people who get to take these dramatic settings for granted. Add in a limoncello tasting here and an afternoon at your villa-hotel’s pool there, and this will be an experience you’ll always remember.

    Born and raised in Africa, i have visited Italy’s most beautiful area of coastline on some two occasions. This region is an inspiration to artists and writers like myself since the turn of the 20th century. I highly recommend exploring the stunning Amalfi coast and Sicily. You will delight in the unique, regional art, http://ubuntutransact.com culture, food, spectacular coastlines and wine. My personal favourite is Positano, the most suggestive center i believe in Amalfi Coast. It is a most enchanting town rich in art, history, culture and stunning landscape beauties.
