Thayer's Art Trip to Italy
Trip Leaders: Brynn Wartman, Anni Zukauskas, and Kelly Hines
Consider the deeper meaning of "Beautiful Italy" as you experience its art, history, and culture. In Venice, cars and roads give way to gondolas and canals, redefining what a city can be. The world's best collection of Renaissance art awaits in Florence. In Rome, behold Michelangelo's take on creation at the Sistine Chapel and retrace the footsteps of ancient Romans at the Colosseum. And in Pompeii, walk the streets of the elite as you explore a town ravaged by Mt. Vesuvius nearly 2,000 years ago.
