DETAILS

Step back in time as you explore the architecture, artwork, fashion, and cultures that have influenced the world for generations. We’ll begin our journey in Rome, retracing the steps of one of the most influential empires in history, and carve our way through the bustling cities and picturesque countrysides of Italy before stopping in Slovenia to take in the fairytale landscape of locations like Bled Island and Ljubljana. Along the way our whirlwind tour will be filled with waterfall hikes, exciting bike rides, kayaking excursions, and sheep herding… you read that right. World-famous works of art you’ll get to see IRL:

  • The Birth of Venus by Botticelli and the David statue by Michelangelo in Florence
  • The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, painted by Michelangelo
  • The Pala d’Oro altar of Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice is a dazzling mosaic made of Byzantine enamel
