Old World Travel
“We must go beyond textbooks, go out into the bypaths and untrodden depths of the wilderness and travel and explore and tell the world the glories of our journey.” –John Hope Franklin
The Imperial Cities of Europe
The majesty of the Imperial cities, Vienna, Budapest and Prague will take your breath away. The history of the former Astro-Hungarian Empire is evident in the beautiful range of palaces, churches, royal residences, and Parliament buildings. Discover the influences of the Romans, the Ottomans and the mighty Hapsburgs who left behind an assortment of kings, emperors, musicians, painters, and dictators that still have an impact on Europe to this day.
There is nothing like the City of Light (named for being a center of education and ideas during the Age of Enlightenment). One may visit Paris to celebrate romance, its’ glorious architecture, its’ celebrated food and wine, or its’ history as one of the most influential centers of learning in Europe, or a combination of those. Heralded for housing some of the most magnificent museums in the world, as well as, being an ingenious leader in the fashion world, Paris is an experience not to be missed.
Bella Italia! Also known as the cradle of European civilization, you will see the influences of Ancient Rome, the medieval period, and the spirited Baroque era in nearly every city, generating iconic images of the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Tower of Pisa and Michelangelo’s David. Italy is a country not only rich with tradition but vibrant and fully modern as well, each region offering a unique flavor in its food, atmosphere and way of life.
