ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

those going on the 9/22 to 10/4 trip. There's a small, hidden island Mazzorba, that you can get to by bridge from Burano, the lace island. We can get to Burano from Murano. Check it out and we can talk when we meet. Here's a link. http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2012/08/travel-mazzorbo-italy-venice


Marie Salerno Sep 17, 2014 at 06:50 PM

If you can go earlier that might be better. Everywhere is full of tourists and students from end of may on. I'm going on my first Rd scholar trip in a couple of days and will be back in Chicago on 10/5 if you want to talk about it. 415 497 9901


Linda Skisak Sep 17, 2014 at 02:50 PM

I am considering the May 30-June 12 2015 for a first time RS trip for me and my husband. We would be leaving from Chicago. I would appreciate any information or feedback from anyone familiar with this trip.
Linda Huntley Sep 17, 2014 at 06:10 PM

Linda, my husband and I took this trip in early June and hloved it. Wei had great accommodations, fabulous food and wonderful guides. It was our first trip to Italy and we wanted a guided tour that concentrated on art and history. Needless to say, we weren't disappointed. We met wonderful people and had a fabulous time. If you want to talk about it call me at 512-761-3301. I am a native Chicagoan who moved to Texas. Linda Huntley


Rosemary Arquisch Sep 11, 2014 at 02:57 PM

Nancy & Ray Brady, Jr Sep 11, 2014 at 03:34 PM

No, we are leaving from Seattle for the 9/21 trip


Palmira Romero Sep 06, 2014 at 02:54 PM

Are any solos going on the Oct. 12 to Oct. 25th 2014 program? I am thinking of going. During the free time I enjoy taking off on my own and would enjoy having someone to join me. Palmy


Katherine Flynn Sep 02, 2014 at 04:37 PM

Should have added-- Arrival 9:20 AM Terminal 3 on Sept. 22


Katherine Flynn Sep 02, 2014 at 04:31 PM

I am a solo traveler, flying out of Toronto. Would love to touch base with my "room mate"!


Mary Mehl Sep 02, 2014 at 05:02 AM

I am a traveling solo for the trip that begins 10/4. I will be flying from Portland, OR to JFK, then on to Rome arriving at 8:30 am on 10/5. Would love to hear from anyone going on this trip!
Neil Ciarfalia Sep 02, 2014 at 10:06 AM

My brother, Dan, and I will be arriving on 10/5 at 10:30AM from London after having spent a couple of days there.
Janice Orion Sep 02, 2014 at 04:48 PM

I will also be travelling solo on the 10/4 trip from Boston to Rome, arriving at 12:40 PM. Hope to meet someone there to share travel to the hotel.
Mary Mehl Sep 03, 2014 at 04:08 PM

Looking forward to meeting you Neil, Dan, and Janice! I will arrive earlier than you folks so I will meet you at the hotel.
Henry Kammerer Sep 09, 2014 at 02:35 PM

Hank & Grace Kammerer will be flying JFK to Rome for the 10/4 trip, but we are just coming from Buffalo, NY, not Portland, so we have $ PM AlItalia flite arriving Rome 6:25 AM, if you see us sleeping in terminal, wake us up to join the group!
Mary Mehl Sep 10, 2014 at 01:23 AM

Hi Henrey and Grace! I will be hanging around terminal 4 at JFK from about 3:30- 5.30pm on the 10/4. If you will be at that terminal, let. me know and I will send you my cell number. Otherwise, I will meet you at the hotel.
Henry Kammerer Sep 11, 2014 at 10:34 AM

Unfortunately we are flying Alitalia (4 PM departure) which flies out of Terminal 1 at JFK , so I guess we will meet in Rome (sounds a lot more exotic than meeting in JFK anyway, doesn't it!).
Mary Mehl Sep 11, 2014 at 03:29 PM

I look forward meeting you in all in Rome! It will be my first time in Italy, but hopefully not my last!
