A group of Tewksbury Memorial High School students spent a recent break on a trip to Italy, where they experienced culture in several iconic locations.
Forty-five students and six chaperones used February break to visit the hillside town of Assisi, spend two days in Renaissance Florence, and conclude the journey with three days in Rome.
Among the sightseeing locations for the students were St. Francis’ Basilica (Assisi), the Duomo (Florence), and the Coliseum and the Vatican (Rome).
There was plenty of good cultural eating, including pasta, gelato and pizza, while students also learned some Italian while on the trip.
Members of the traveling group said they had "the trip of a lifetime," and said they have Tewksbury parents, the school administration and the School Committee to thank for their journey.
