Andiamo in Italia!
Mosaic of Justinian, San Vitale
Let’s go to Italy! Join us from March 17-27, 2018 for an attraction-rich visit to northern and central Italy, where our tour will take us to a number of the area’s most important medieval and Renaissance world-heritage sites. We will begin on the shores of the Adriatic Sea in Venice, swing down to the once-important port city of Ravenna, then head west to Florence, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Shorter stops in the towns of Verona, Bologna, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca, and Pisa will round out our experience of the Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, and Tuscan regions of Italy.
Highlights of this trip include St. Mark’s Square in Venice; the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna, whose glittering 1,400-year-old mosaics create another-worldly realm; and the mind-boggling array of Renaissance masterworks encountered at almost every turn in Florence. We’ll look up at Juliette’s balcony in Verona, taste gelato at its birthplace, and try out the pizza and Lambrusco in Ravenna. Few countries can compete with Italy’s art, architecture, scenery, and cuisine … be part of this excursion and see for yourself!
