Competing on Site
Students will not only have the chance to tour Rome, but to compete in some of its iconic sites! At the moment, we are planning on the following:
- Running Combined in the Circus Maximus
- Sports History Bee in the Circus Maximus
- Roman History Bee Finals in the Coliseum
- Catholic History Bee Finals in St. Peter’s Square / Vatican City
- Art History Scramble at a museum (to be announced) in Rome.
Further opportunities may be added to this list. For further details on each event, see the descriptions under the Events menu.
Short walking tours & Possible additional tour destinations
Depending on staff availability and student interest, other tours may be offered to see nearby sites (e.g. certain churches, museums, other ancient Roman sites) that are not otherwise a part of trips listed here. Such sites could include the Baths of Caracalla, the Pyramid of Cestius, the Great Synagogue and Jewish Museum, as well as short trips to get a gelato or a fresh slice of Roman pizza.
