    Hotel Art. Tuscanys al fresco museum, Florence

    buildings resplendent with Renaissance brilliance,

    inside and out. Enjoy a fresh look at Florence

    through the eyes of our local guide; walk along

    the Arno, mingle with memories of the Medici in

    the San Lorenzo area and see the massive duomo

    of Santa Maria del Fiore. Cocktails and canaps

    follow back at the hotel youll dine at a riverside

    restaurant across the Ponte Vecchio. The restaurant

    is lively, the views wonderful, the conversation

    fascinating... Benvenuti in Italia! Meals D

    SEPTEMBER 4 THE HEART OF ARTMeet a Florentine art history scholar who shares

    stories about the artists who used city landmarks

    as their palette as she provides a tell all on

    Michelangelo during an exclusive insider lecture.

    Then its off to the Uffizi to see works by

    Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and more, including

    Botticellis Birth of Venus and Michelangelos Doni

    Tondo, nestled in a frame he also designed. The

    star-studded parade of head-turning art continues

    during your visit to the Galleria dellAccademia,

    where the statue of David reigns as a study in

    artistic perfection. Look around the city on your

    own before joining us for a lesson in some basic

    Italiano. Buona giornata! Meals B

    SEPTEMBER 5 LIVING THE FLORENTINE LIFEBy special appointment, go inside two working

    restoration studios in the old San Niccol district to

    meet the people behind the art. Art Restoration

    Specialist Bettina Schindler-Pratesi, a teacher

    and a talented artist, gives new life to antiques

    dressed in ivory, bone and mother-of-pearl. Next

    door, see a multitude of locals at work restoring

    and immortalizing art from all genres. A short

    drive to the Basilica of Santa Croce, eternal

    resting place for Michelangelo, Galileo, Rossini

    and other illustrious Italians, offers a chance to

    reflect on the treasured legacies of their lives.

    Local scents, sights and sounds come to life at

    the colorful Mercato Centrale, enticing with

    traditional Florentine street food... lampredotto

    sandwiches fresh fruit... porchetta gelato.

    Sample regional delights as you wish and spend

    the afternoon exploring on your own. The

    grandson of a former Florentine mayor, concert

    pianist Gregorio Nardi, and his wife Annegret,

    invite you to join them at the end of the day

    at the Palazzo Bargellini. Your private evening

    affair includes a personal tour, a recital on

    a Steinway Grand piano, lively discussions on

    history and politics, and an aperitivo. Meals B

    SEPTEMBER 6 THE WAY TO CINQUE TERRETake a road trip that twists and turns its way

    toward the Mediterranean Sea; en route, see the

    huge mountains of white marble at Carrara as you

    ride aboard a 4 x 4 to view them up close on a

    guided tour. Drive along the coast to Liguria and

    Portovenere on the Gulf of Poets. A motor boat

    navigates Mediterranean waters along Cinque Terre

    to your boutique hotel in Monterosso. Meals BLD

    SEPTEMBER 7 DISCOVER THE FIVE LANDSHike with us through terraced vineyards

    overlooking the sea from Monterosso to

    Vernazza. If you would prefer not to walk, take

    the train back to your hideaway by the sea. The

    rest of the day is free. Meals B

    SEPTEMBER 8 COOKING IN TUSCANYDrive through the Tuscan Hills to nearby Lucca

    where a hands-on lesson with local chefs at

    a cooking school reveals secrets in the art of

    making fresh pasta Fattoria Colleverde is one

    of the regions foremost wineries and olive oil

    producers. Do a little virgin olive oil tasting

    a little Tuscan wine tasting and more than a

    little pasta tasting at lunch. Meals BL

    SEPTEMBER 9 LUSCIOUS LUCCAExplore medieval Lucca by bicycle with a local

    guide who knows the best routes by heart. If

    youre not interested in bicycling, theres so

    much to see and do in town. A local winery just

    outside of town is the setting for an evening

    of wine, prosecco, and canaps, followed by a

    dinner of regional specialties under the fading

    light of the storied Tuscan sun. Meals BD

    SEPTEMBER 10 ARRIVEDERCI, TUSCANYTour ends: Florence. Fly home anytime. A transfer is included from San Luca Palace Hotel

    immersion in all things Florentine, or Tuscan.

    Experts on many subjects, along with local

    residents, share their experience, their knowledge

    and their passions youll find that you push your boundaries and try something new as you experience la dolce vita with an average

    of 20 like-minded travel lovers. This trip is

    about laughter at the enoteca while tasting the flavors of olive oil and sharing likes and

    dislikes. Its a lesson in key Italian words to get

    you comfortable ordering gelato on the piazza...

    or choosing your lunch at a local market. Its

    walking, jogging, bicycling, or even rollerblading

    on the walls of Lucca.

    Tuscany & Cinque Terre

    Washington University Alumni and Friends:

    Experience an authentic taste of la dolce vita in Tuscany and Cinque Terre when you join fellow alumni and friends on an active 8-day vacation that immerses you in the cultural treasures of these storied Italian destinations.

    Youll stay in small luxury hotels in Florence, Monterosso and Lucca, enjoying picturesque views, great service and ideal locations steps from must-see sights. Guided sightseeing is enhanced by local experts who share their insider knowledge with you, from an art history scholar and a restoration artist in Florence to a Tuscan chef who cant wait to show you how to prepare the perfect pasta dish! Youll also go inside world-class museums and artisan workshops, visit a private palace and garden, ride a 4 x 4 into Carrara marble quarries, hike along the footpaths of Cinque Terre, bike atop Luccas medieval walls and sample olive oil and wine in the places where they are made... along with lots of other included activities that make this trip fascinating and fun! We hope you can join us!

    Sincerely,

    Washington University Alumni Association Travel Committee John Fox Arnold Gail Lewin, LW 76 Thomas Lancaster, GR 83 Tom Lowther, LW 62, GR 99* Molly McConnell, LA 66 Tom McConnell, LA 66 Rodney Pick, BU 85 Jeff Rosenkranz, BU 84 Ann Ruwitch *Chairman
