From the tour guides, More for Le$$ Tours:
This tour is a fast-paced, see-as-much-as-we-can style tour. It will not be leisurely or relaxing on the beach style tour as we will be moving to a new city almost every day or two. We will be visiting one of the arts and culture centers of the world… Italy!
Most of our travel will be by train, like the locals do in this country. The train schedules usually run within a minute of their scheduled time, which means we will need to be ready to jump on or off at the appropriate times. Trains wait for no one.
Our intent is to give you a good overview of this country’s culture to allow you to see the similarities and the differences between Italy and the USA. We will also get to see some of the world’s greatest artwork including Michelangelo’s David. This journey should give you a small peek into the rest of the world.
From the Cultural Center:
Our vision is to connect people to artists and rich cultural experiences, celebrating the local and being a window to the world. This new collaborative project helps bring this vision to life! More information to come soon regarding programs and events leading up to the trip itself; our goal is that even if you aren’t able to actually board the plane to Italy, you still have the opportunity to learn about the culture! Check back for more info soon.
