TUSCANY TOUR - October 6 to October 14, 2014
Florence – Chianti - Montalcino
The Collins College is again sponsoring a trip to Tuscany, Italy, from October 6 to October 14, 2014. The trip will start in Florence, continue to the Chianti region of Tuscany and conclude in the southern Tuscan region of Montalcino. The tour will be led by Dr. Robert Small, emeritus professor and former dean of the Collins College, who has made several trips to the region including an extended stay while on sabbatical and a previous Cal Poly Pomona trip to this region of Italy. The tour will highlight museums of international reputation and regional note, distinctive restaurants, food markets and cooking classes, and both large well-known wineries and small independent family-oriented wineries. Participants will have the opportunity to choose between activities offered, explore the city individually or take a rest day.
