Description

Join us as we venture off-the-beaten-track to southern Italy. We will explore the art and architecture that travelers often overlook and prove that there is more than just Pompeii to surprise and delight south of Rome!

This seminar will show you the treasures of Southern Italy, many of which are practically unknown outside Italy, even the sites and places with UNESCO World Heritage status. Designed to inspire future travels beyond Florence, Venice, and Rome, participants will come away knowing about the Greek temples at Paestum, the Byzantine mosaics in Palermo, the world's largest palace at Caserta, and the cave paintings of Matera.

Led by an expert on art history, Danielle Oteri, this interactive seminar will explore the marvels of Italy south of Rome. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of the lesser-known treasures of Europe.
