Italy calls to people in a unique way. Ancient traditions combine with a spiritual pride expressed in the art and food that tepitomize what we have come to know as La Bella Vita. There is something about the country that stirs the soul as much as it educates the mind. From Roman ruins to the richness of the Renaissance, from the ruins of war to the peace of country life, experience the world in a new way in beautiful Italy. We will visit Rome, Pompeii, Sorrento, Lucca, Paestum, Carrara, Siena and Florence in 9 days. Led by GFS art teachers Sarah Sachs and Diane Yu.

The trip is limited to 20 students. We are currently full and have three on the wait list at this point.  Contact Sarah Sachs for more information.
