Why Rome's Story Matters

The Roman Empire profoundly influenced the Western World, leaving a lasting legacy in law, urban planning, culture, language, and literature. It was instrumental in developing modern democratic institutions, legal principles, and infrastructure.

Exploring the history of the Roman Empire provides valuable insights into the challenges posed by expansion versus isolation policies, the social and governmental crises faced by long-lasting institutions, and the enduring impact of various leadership styles and leaders.

Our trips to Italy are meant to encourage reflection and conversations over these themes while exploring the Roman story and modern Italy.

Live the Story

Our trips are organized around a narrative co-created by historians, expert guides and local insiders. Through pre-trip videos, immersive itineraries, and local meetings, you'll not just learn about Ancient Rome—you'll live it.

Explore Together

Our trips bring together curious people in intimate groups of no more than 12. You'll connect with others who share your passions and motivations. In our experience, this helps foster strong relationships and a sense of camaraderie.

Embrace Adventure

With everything just a click away, our modern world can get a bit dull. We've been there, and stepping out of your comfort zone helps. Our trips are designed to spark that sense of discovery at every turn.
