We will fly into Rome and explore the Ancient City, and the Treasures of the Renaissance. After 2 nights in Rome, our private coach will take us on to Florence (with a stop in Assisi to see the Basilica of St. Francis and the Frescoes by Giotto). After 2 days & nights in Florence, we head on to Innsbruck, Austria for a New Years Eve celebration in the Alps.
Week two covers the Lutherstraße in Germany. We will stay in Nuremberg, Erfurt, & Wittenberg (with an excursion to the Wartburg Castle, where Luther was hidden from the Emperor and spent several months translating the Bible into German). At the end of our trip, after a final banquet, we fly home from Berlin.
High School students (age 15 & up) with an interest in the Renaissance and Reformation are welcome to join us. Parents and friends of the Schaeffer Study Center are also welcome.

The total tour fee is $4,500 (until the end of this month). The tour fee inclues airfare (to/from Nashville), hotels & all transportation in Europe, breakfast & dinner each day, and ALL museum admissions. Your only additional expenses will be for lunches and souveneirs.
