The University of Tennessee at Martin will conduct a spring travel study to Italy on March 9-20.
Among the highlights of the travel study will be the Grand Canal and Doge’s Palace in Venice, the University of Padua (where Galileo worked), the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Towers of the Asinelli in Bologna, Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Roman Coliseum, Sistine Chapel and the Vatican in Rome, Pompeii and the Statue of David in Florence.
Travelers will fly into Venice and spend nights there and in Florence, Rome and Naples. A glass-blowing demonstration in Venice and an olive oil and cheese tasting in Florence will complement the site visits.
The cost will be about $3,750 per person. This includes round-trip airfare from Memphis to Venice and Naples back to Memphis; 10 nights’ hotel accommodations; daily breakfast; admissions to all scheduled events; and special dinners in Florence and Rome. Deadline for the deposit is Dec. 2.
