Unforgettable journeys devised by the experts in archaeological travel. This Spring Andante Travels is running a new programme of seven Italian Cultural Tours. These tours offer a comprehensive introduction to Italian history and culture through the ages: from the monumental splendours of Imperial Rome, to the exuberant baroque architecture of 17th century Apulia.
Every tour is conceived, planned and guided by experts: working professors, lecturers and authors who have spent their working lives immersed in the study of Italian archaeology. The Guide Lecturers are often able to arrange special access to rarely-seen or private site and monuments.
