Members of John Marshall’s English Literature Club returned home early Friday morning after a 10-day excursion to Italy and Greece to experience foreign cultures. Thirty-five travelers went, including many guardians of the Junior and Senior students. Fees for the trip were paid by fundraising for the last two years.
The trip began March 15th, when attendees boarded a bus to the Pittsburgh Airport. After their connecting flights, students landed in Rome, Italy. The group visited the most famous attractions, including the Coliseum, the Vatican, and the Trevi Fountain.
The next few days, students toured the cities of Naples, Pompeii, and Sorrento.
After a visit to the beautiful island of Capri, the travelers boarded an 18 hour long ferry ride to Patras, Greece.
A day was spent on the Greek beaches before departing to Mycenae, where club members saw the ancient Acropolis. The last few days were spent in Athens, where the great Parthenon can be found.
After connecting flights to Paris and Atlanta, travelers returned home with plenty of stories and pictures to share.
