2017 Alumni Trip to Florence and Venice Planned
Posted 06/30/2016 09:29AM

Having been approached by several people about running an alumni trip to Italy, English Department Chair, Mary Sharnick, is pleased to offer an alumni trip to Florence and Venice for Chase graduates from the Classes of 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. This excursion is scheduled for July of 2017.*

This alumni trip offers recent graduates an intensive immersion in the history and culture of both Florence and Venice. It has been said that there is more great art per square foot in Florence than anywhere else in the world. Florence is where the Italian Renaissance began, and it still conjures up images of Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, the Medici family, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Machiavelli. Venice is the floating city that has been enchanting travelers for more than a millennium. With its Gothic architecture and glistening canals, Venice casts a spell over all its visitors. These Italian city states realized that art and culture are power, and we will be exploring the enduring legacy of that philosophy.

The itinerary anticipates spending seven nights in Florence and seven nights in Venice. Factoring in travel time, the trip will last sixteen days.
