So enjoyable. Definitely recommend this for art lovers for a very special look at some of the progressive women who, with personality and contacts, helped so many artists. Great lecturer and information!
This was a fun walk as I followed along on my Paris map. Great points of interest and recomendations. I cannot wait to explore this new area of Paris.
Susan offers a well-informed, well-designed, well-paced walking tour of the heart of Venice. Having participated in all of her wonderful more conventional seminars over the past several months, I feel confident in saying that this live format frees Susan to offer an even richer experience. And having spent a reasonable amount of time exploring this Piazza, I still noticed new details and perspectives and learned a lot.
The gathering forces of war were made evident by Jennie in how the pavilions and art expressed what was coming. It was fascinating to see how this World's Fair expressed these forces.

Christina did it again! She is able to bring the history of a Renaissance artist to life in the 21st century. Christina weaves a beautiful story of Michelangelo, his personal struggles and triumphs and training that allow him to create the master pieces that we associate with him. She puts it all out there, ties it up in a big red bow and hands it to you as a present full of excitement to discover more about Michelangelo or one of the many Renaissance artists she studies. I can't wait to take another class with Christina, next time I hope its when I return to Florence!
Kana-san is very knowledgeable about this trail and the area in general. Her presentation was well-organized with beautiful photos of the area. She also discussed option to walking the entire trail, a piece of information especially useful for seniors or people who might not be able to walk the whole thing. Very helpful.
This was a wonderful and extremely informative tour of Piazza San Marco! Dr. Steer did a wonderful job showing us all of the sights and explaining all of the history behind what we were viewing.
Aristotle knows the rather arcane subject matter cold and presents it impressively. It was an excellent lecture in all ways.
My guest and I thoroughly enjoyed today's Context Travel tour! We both recently read a book about Coco Chanel and loved having Estela Mendes take us through her life and businesses.

I have been to Bolzano and this presentation put it in even better perspective than I realized than when I was there. It was a very good summary of an area I will look forward to returning to again.
I come away with one page of notes, which is very handy. I don't have to write a paper. I stay focused on my project. Very relaxed. I take notes from the recording Context sends me so I'm free to simply listen to the zoom session. Dr. Lapadula is nice and very funny.
This was yet another in a series of absolutely exhilarating walks through a well-mapped neighborhood of Paris with Gil. Not only is Gil one of your best live Context companions, he is one of the best guides I have learned from anywhere out in the world. This was in some ways more low key than his other walks—although just lingering around Notre Dame was heartbreaking—and that was just right. Gil always clearly explains his well-planned routes before setting out and all along the way. He handles the videography brilliantly, without ever missing a beat in his expert (and never condescending) commentary. He is so brilliantly prepared and so engaging, that he can easily improvise without getting lost in any way. More walks with Gil. Please.
Fascinating survey of the fair and all the products that were being introduced or promoted.
