Acquaint yourself with classical Mediterranean splendors on this spring sojourn in Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, France and Spain.

Sail aboard Oceania Cruises’ luxurious Riviera, stopping at Zadar and Kotor, beautifully preserved towns rising above the Adriatic Sea. Encounter Palermo’s colorful markets, and behold legendary monuments in Rome. Cruise to Livorno, a jumping-off point to explore the glorious Tuscan countryside or the world-class cities of Florence and Pisa. Admire the Picasso collection at Antibes, a gorgeous getaway romanticized by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Savor the cosmopolitan spirit of Marseille, your gateway to the postcard-worthy landscapes of Provence, and unwind at Port-Vendres, a lovely harbor town on the Vermillion Coast, before your odyssey concludes in Barcelona, Spain’s energetic cultural hub.

UCLA Faculty on Tour

Kathryn Morgan
Department of Classics
Kathryn Morgan is chair of the UCLA Department of Classics and teaches courses on ancient Greek literature, mythology and culture. She has recently finished a book on the praise poetry of Pindar (5th c. B.C.) and the way poetics and mythology merge to create positive image of monarchy for Pindar’s royal patrons. Morgan is currently beginning a new project on how the historian Thucydides and the philosopher Plato use historiography to advance particular and competing views of the world. She has a longstanding interest in the interactions of ancient Mediterranean civilizations, particularly in the realm of mythology, and regularly teaches courses that explore the movement of mythological narratives across space and time, from stories of the great goddess to the complications involved in investigating the myth of Atlantis.
