The second trip of 2012 was a deluxe European Travel Tour for the Educated Traveler. Escorted tours allowed participants the pleasure of leaving their cares at home to enjoy stressless travel and focus on maximizing their travel experience. Intimate, behind-the-scenes, experiential, educational…unlike the Italy tours offered by others. Seven nights on the spectacular Amalfi Coast, exploring Campania, known as Italy’s breadbasket. The tour group visited a farm famous for the regional specialty, buffalo mozzarella and marveled at the breadth of Italy’s prodigious history. The group experienced five UNESCO World Heritage List sites: the Amalfi Coast; the historic city center of Naples; the archeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii; and the Greek ruins at Paestum. They then crossed the Gulf of Naples to spend a day on the enchanting Isle of Capri and admired the spectacular towns of Positano, Sorrento and Naples!
"We had a fantastic time and the program exceeded our expectations. Our campus director was very professional and made sure everyone was taken care of. I was impressed with her attention to detail, customer service, and knowledge of the area."—Charlie Busceme, Sour Lake, TX
