EXCURSIONS & EVENTS
There will be many guided visits in the Valencia area, including the medieval cathedral, the Museo Fallero, a ceramics workshop in Manises, and the spectacular, modern Centro de Artes y Ciencias, designed by the world-renowed Valencian architect Calatravas. Also available will be optional weekend trips (cost not included) and optional workshops.

The Directors will notify students of the required arrival date and time. Transportation will be arranged on site for students, so it is highly recommend students arrive when requested. Additionally, the Directors will reserve seats on a specific flight, which students are encouraged to book. However, students will be required to make any deposits/payments for airfare directly to the travel agent by the set deadlines.
Students may also choose to make their own arrival arrangements, in which case they will be responsible for transportation from the airport or any additional nights of lodging required.
