The Italian Renaissance
Travel dates: November 3 – 12, 2017
The Italian Renaissance has held sway over the western imagination for centuries, forming the foundations of any humanities education. With its rich culture and engaging history, Italy offers an ideal place for old and new friends to form memories of a lifetime. Dr. Sean Nelson ’99 will lead a group of alumni on a 10-day VIP trip to Rome, Florence and Venice to discover why the art and culture of early modern Italy marked the beginning of a truly connected world.
This exclusive experience for Punahou alumni offers what other tours cannot. With the privacy of our alumni group, you’ll have special, after-hours access inside the Sistine Chapel, St. Mark’s Cathedral and the Florence Duomo Terraces. You’ll tour the Colosseum and Michelangelo’s David with a Punahou alumnus, now art history professor; create your own Italian cuisine at cooking class; watch a demonstration of Venice’s famous glass art and see the Piazza San Marco at night sans crowds.
