Italy: Not Just Rome & Florence

Travel & Adventure Series

Bell’Italia! Italy has Europe’s richest, craziest culture. After all, this nation is the cradle of European civilization. In the Italian countryside, connect with rustic, traditional culture to see how prosciutto and pecorino cheese are made, and hike to the bottom of deep and ancient wine cellars. Then on to Assisi—the hometown of St. Francis, which retains its spiritual aura to this day. In Tuscany’s wine country, Siena, enjoy a front-row seat at its wild horse race, the venerable Palio, and marvel at cultural treasures. Then we’ll head into wine country for a little dolce vita under the Tuscan sun. We’ll end with Italy’s Riviera: Cinque Terre. Exploring Italy’s most remote and romantic stretch of Riviera, we visit five tiny port towns: Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola; Riomaggiore and Monterosso. Fishing for anchovies, sipping wine out of rustic barrels, and savoring twinkling Mediterranean vistas, we enjoy the ultimate Riviera adventure. Call 633-3700 to register or register online now.
