2020 Travel Abroad Open Houses
Join us as we formally unveil our 2020 Travel excursions to Venice, the National Parks of the Southwest, linger through historic museums of St. Petersburg and the Baltics, visit the beauty of Provincial France, and also Northern Italy, Sicily in Depth, Israel Timeless Wonders and the Patagonian Frontiers.
 
Eight exciting and luxurious tours are planned for our upcoming travel season, and we invite you to learn about them all. Through unique and interesting itineraries, participants have the opportunity to experience life outside the classroom, visit historic sites with local guides, experience another culture – its customs, cuisine, language and history – and delight in conversation and laughter with fellow explorers who share a love of travel and a sense of adventure.

It’s a land of scenes epic in scope, from the immense Grand Canyon and the sinuous Colorado to the sandstone spires of Bryce and the red-rock cliffs and chasms of Zion. It’s the Southwest, which our small group celebrates at favorite national parks and preserves, America’s “best idea”.

The Pearls of the Po: From Venice to Parma Aboard La Venezia
May 9 – 17, 2020
 
8 days
 
VIEW BROCHURE
 
Join the first cruise in a decade along this legendary waterway on the lavish, newly renovated super ship La Venezia, and visit remote, artistically rich towns that are under-explored by international visitors. Dock overnight in the heart of Venice for early access to the city at sunrise, when the passageways are empty, serene and Venice’s sparkling piazza and palazzi are most captivating. Revel in the artistic splendors of Parma, where dazzling frescoes from Correggio and Parmigianino grace churches, and admire stunning 5th and 6th century mosaics in Ravenna. Explore the medieval and Renaissance city of Ferrara, innovatively designed as an “ideal city” by urban planner Biagio Rossetti. View medieval Estense Castle, with its storybook moat, drawbridges and gorgeous towers. Delight in an exclusive, after-hours visit to Venice’s iconic Saint Mark’s Basilica, an 11th century showstopper filled with glittering gold mosaics and beautiful marble floors and statues.
