Students will be walking in the footsteps of John, Paul, George, and Ringo across Abbey Road in Westminister, contemplating D-Day landing on the beaches of Normandy, wandering and comparing the Louvre and the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris, examining the cultural influence the Iron Curtain had on either side of Germany in Berlin and Dresden, and ultimately its fall during velvet revolution in Prague. You will visit some of the most beautiful cities in Europe: London, Paris, Berlin, Dresden and Prague, traveling alongside inspirational historians of the 20th century, Modern Art, and Pop Culture every step of the way.
