Join us for a sunset gondola ride through the famous canals of Venice! With its looming fortresses, breathtaking architecture, and history of naval dominance, Venice is the perfect location to examine the intersections of art, history and present-day Italian culture. From an afternoon chat with friends over espresso con panna by the famous Rialto, to taking in a street performance in Piazza San Marco, get ready to learn the story of how Venice influenced centuries of European history.
On the way to Venice, stop by Juliet’s house in beautiful Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s greatest love story, the annual opera festival and its Roman amphitheatre. Ponder finding true love and your own Romeo as you stand on Juliet’s balcony (but please do not miss our bus departure!)
