Gabii field school program 2009

The Gabii Project is pleased to announce a field program in 2009 for student volunteers. The 5-week program will run from June 21 through July 25, 2009.

All student volunteers will be housed at the Hotel Villa Mercede in Frascati, Italy. This hotel features air conditioning, wireless internet, and a swimming pool. Two students will share each guestroom that includes a bathroom and two beds. Frascati is connected to Rome by a local train (30 minutes). The on-site restaurant at the hotel will provide breakfast, a packed lunch, and dinner. The Project will arrange for vegetarian meals on request and will attempt to accommodate special dietary needs. Some meals will be served on Saturday and Sunday at the hotel for any who elect to remain close to Frascati. The daily schedule (Monday-Friday) will begin with breakfast at 6:30 am, followed by a prompt 7:00 am departure for the site. Students will be transported via a contracted motor coach. Once on site there will be a mid-morning break and a lunch break. Student will depart the site around 4:30 pm to return to Frascati. Dinner will be served at the hotel around 8:00 pm. Students will have weekend days (Saturday and Sunday) free. No prior experience is required. Cost: $3,600
