We have arrived!

It was a long journey--nearly 24 hours of travel, thanks to the Air France strike.  Luckily our outstanding team at Concert and Study Tours (Yay Naomi and Patt!), who facilitated all our Italian adventures, were on it, and got us home!

Our final wet, rai...

 Our last day in Italy started with a free morning in Rome. Our free morning was over shadowed by a torrential downpour and wind. Most people chose to catch up on some sleep but a few ventured out into the heavy rain and wind. After our free morning we met in the hotel...

Today, we had our first whole day in Rome! We visited amazing places such as the Coloseum and Palatine Hill. To get there, we had to ride the subway, just one stop ahead. But, because of a marathon that was going on, we had to wait until the next stop to get off.

Once w...

Student voices will be back tomorrow, I promise!  It has been a couple long days, and late nights at the theater, which has cut into our blog and journal time.

Today began bright and early with a visit to the Uffizi...here you see our own three graces who could easily h...

It has been an amazing and busy day! We began with a wonderful breakfast in our hotel--all grateful to see eggs again! Then we marched through Florence, enjoying the bright spring sunshine. We paused on the Ponte Vecchio to admire gold, and break into a rousing renditi...

On this trip, I've really learned the virtue of early rising. By getting up so early we got to see Venice wake up as we went down the canal for the last time to get to the train station.

While the train station may have been like any other one in Italy, it was special t...

 The Palazzo Ducale/Doge's Palace, a gargantuan structure full of some of the most beautiful gold leaf ceilings and perspective paint. This was the first stop on day four around Venezia. Every room opened to an even grander one each with its own story. We questioned ho...

Today we went to THE most beautiful opera house in the world, La Fenice. It was a pastel blue, pink, and white theme. And had lots of gold ornamentation, and very ornate colorful paintings. It had all of the most important composers on the walls, and a whole floor dedi...

After a long day and evening of travel we arrived, safe and sound, at Marco Polo Airport and were whisked off to Venice by two water taxis.  The sea air and brilliant sunshine rejuvenated us, and off we went to the Monastery which is our home base for the next couple d...

April 1, 2018

It's about twenty minutes before we board the plane. I'm very excited, since this is going to be my first time out of the country, and I'm going to take a wild guess that Italy is a great first place overseas to visit! We're finishing our lunches right now, and after I...
