Global Learning Programs Visit Italy, China, and France

Episcopal’s Global Learning Programs kicked off the summer with trips to China, Italy, and France. Students on the trip to Italy are focusing on photography and art, attending the Biennale in Venice, visiting Florence, Cinque Terre, and Milan. Students were able to process their film at an art school in Florence, see the Boboli Gardens, Uffizi, Accademia Gallery, and attend a service at Basilica di San Miniato al Monte. 
 
Students in China started in Beijing, visiting Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden Palace, Temple of Heaven, and the Beijing Opera, as well as the Great Wall of China. They then headed to Xi’an, spending a day biking on the city walls, exploring, and sampling all kinds of dumplings. They will also visit Shanghai. 
 
The trip to France began with a homestay as part of an exchange program with Lycee St. Félix La Salle. Students then visited Les Machines de l’île, viewing the machines and riding the carousel. They took a river cruise to see the chateaux and took a historical walking tour of Nantes. The group will head to Paris and Normandy later in the trip.
