Cortona: Alumni Campus Abroad
Activity Level: Mildly Active
From the innovations of the Etruscans to the enlightenment of the Renaissance, Tuscany is a region steeped in history and human achievement. Let the charming village of Cortona be your base as you travel through the surrounding Tuscan hill country, admiring the beauty of the land. In Siena, navigate narrow cobblestone streets lined with Gothic buildings, visit the magnificent Duomo, and stroll the Piazza del Campo, one of the loveliest squares in Italy. In the Umbria region, explore medieval Assisi, home to the exquisite Basilica of St. Francis, and Perugia, an ancient Etruscan city-state. Then, journey to tiny Montepulciano, set in the heart of Chianti Country. Finally, experience the brilliant artistic and architectural heritage of Florence, the "Cradle of the Renaissance."
Alumni Campus Abroad is a terrific format! This was my 5th alumni campus tour. The educational component is very important and valuable to me.
