Description: Have you ever dreamed of walking where the Gladiators walked? Wished to marvel at the actual artwork or masters like Michelangelo and DaVinci instead of just seeing pictures? Longed to cruise down a cannel in a gondola? Fancied a stroll through the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel ? If so, your dreams may soon become reality!
For several years now, each January term Dr. Petkov has offered a tour that would take students to the magical, historical country of Italy for a 14-day tour. The study tour will journey through Rome, Orvieto, Florence, Siena, Pisa, and Venice – with plenty of opportunities to take in the sites of these glorious cities.
Costs include airfare, 12 nights hotel accommodations including daily breakfast, transfers and city tours by private motorcoach (and motorlaunch in Venice), English speaking assistant for arrival transfers, licensed local English speaking guides, and entrance fees to various museums/cultural sites.
