VIU students have the extraordinary opportunity to live in a world heritage city with a great concentration of arts, architecture and history. But it is not only the signs of the past that make Venice an interesting place to live: the city is a living machine in a unique setting on water, which represents an alternative urban and social concept which extends from the mainland to the many islands in the lagoon and estuary.
The rich co-curricular program offers students the opportunity to discover and relate to the city of Venice, its lagoon and hinterland, taking teaching out of the classroom and in to the field, and creating opportunities for students to socialize with their peers.
Activities include visits related to the courses to some of the traditional sights and tours of cultural sites of interest with experts in different fields, a weekly movie series and a variety of guest lectures and cultural events.
