In March, 1998, I accompanied a group of Latin students from Douglas MacArthur High School (San Antonio, TX) on a trip to Italy over Spring Break. It was a whirlwind trip. In ten days, we visited Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, Assisi, Florence, and Venice before flying home from Milan. It was a great trip; I'm going again next year!
