Spring Break Program in Italy:10 Day Enrichment Program
Why Come on a Spring Break trip to Italy?
The sands of Ancient Rome under foot and the greatest art and architecture in the world all around: it is hard to imagine a better Spring Break than this! In the Eternal City of Rome, students climb among the ruins of the Colosseum, visit the temples of the Forum, and witness the glory of the Sistine Chapel, before heading north to the sun-drenched hills of Tuscany and the heart of the Renaissance: Florence. Whether standing on the Ponte Vecchio, or staring up in awe at Michelangelo’s David, time spent in Leonardo Da Vinci’s favourite city never disappoints. The journey continues in Siena, the great rival to medieval Florence. Its maze of cobble stoned streets slowly reveal some of Italy’s best food, culture, and what was to be the country’s largest cathedral. A trip through the art and history of Italy is a spectacular way to spend Spring Break.

Departure From Toronto (Day 1)
Our North American departure hub is Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. Five hours prior to our departure, a short meeting will be held at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel, Terminal 3, to distribute course packs and maps and to clarify travel procedures. All students are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to the Sheraton Gateway Hotel. Students making alternate arrangements must contact MEI before November 30.
Rome (Day 3–11)
Muskoka is a scenic area sprinkled with picturesque villages and towns, farming communities, and lakeside vacation hotels and resorts near to golf courses, country clubs, and marinas. Right in the heart of “Cottage Country”, Clublink courses like Rocky Crest and The Lake Joseph Club have become legendary not only for their immense beauty, but top-rated facilities and playing amenities. Academically we will be focusing on leadership in sports, discussing legendary coaches and figures and their approaches to sports and life.
Florence (Day 11–15)
From Muskoka we will travel to another picturesque location, with a stop in Mont-Tremblant, where students will have the opportunity to play Le Val de Lac and Le Maitre de Mont, two beautiful courses with world-class facilities. Academically, we will focus on creating our own athletic philosophies and ethos, using the knowledge and experience gained throughout our trip to develop a unique approach to golf.
Siena (Day 15–21)
Long considered a cultural hub of North America, Montreal offers students the opportunity to see another side of Canada—one that immerses itself in music, the arts, and great literature while still offering breathtaking scenery and unique cuisine. Students will balance their time on the course with tours through historical neighbourhoods like the Mile-End, the Plateau, and the Old Port. We will finish off the program with our final tournament at Le Fontainebleau, host of the 2004 Telus Skins Open and 2015 Champions Tour Montreal Open.
