The Pantheon of Rome
The Sanisera Archaeology Institute offers the opportunity to students of visiting 2 of the most important cities in the Roman world: Rome, the capital of the Empire, and Pompeii, whose excellent preservation allows us to admire the architectural and the artistic conventions of the time.
During the first part of the course students will carry out fieldwork at the Roman city of Sanisera (Menorca, Spain), where they will be trained in archaeological methods and practice. Also they will learn how to classify the Roman materials that we find on site.
By the end of the course we will fly to Rome (Italy), where we’ll stay for five days in order to visit the most important monuments of the city. The Roman Forum, the Coliseum, the Palatine Hill, the Pantheon and the Capitoline and Vatican museums. In this way, we will discover the best Roman architectural and engineering developments, as well as the most relevant artistic representations.

Also we’ll take a day trip to Pompeii so that students can discover this fascinating site where History is alive! We will travel to the region of Campania to visit the ruins of the city which was destroyed and buried under ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. It is a unique opportunity to explore a Roman city’s urban planning, architecture and art, since its preservation is outstanding.
On the last day of the course we’ll fly back to Menorca, so that students can enjoy their free time on the island before going back home.
