Location

This tour will take you to Bologna, Florence, and Naples in Italy.

Bologna

The vibrant Bologna is defined as learned because of its ancient and prestigious university. It is also defined as fat because it is the home of good cooking and also red because of the reflection of the brick with which the towers and palazzos were built with. There is no other city in the world that has as many arcades as Bologna (about 53 kilometers).

Florence

Florence is considered an open-air museum! The center of the city is contained in medieval walls that were built in the 14th century to defend the city. At the heart of the city, in Piazza della Signoria, is Bartolomeo Ammanati’s Fountain of Neptune (1563-1565). It is a masterpiece of marble sculpture at the terminus of a still functioning Roman aqueduct. Perfectly preserved as a historic city, Florence has allowed art and culture to flourish since the 14th century.

Naples

In the magical city of Naples, colors, flavors, culture, and history are intertwined in a charming mix of knowledge, joy, and fun.
