The Guide to Essential Italy
The Guide to Essential Italy takes Knowledge Seekers on a DVD video tour and travelogue of Rome, Assisi, Florence, Pompeii and Venice. You will explore the most famous and culturally important Italian sites with each of their special palaces, statuary, cathedrals and churches and monumental artworks. Professor Kenneth Bartlett teaches this course, which the Great Courses Teaching Company produced in collaboration with the Smithsonian. Richard Galant will be the on-site assistant guide as Knowledge Seekers gain a deeper understanding of Italy's premiere destinations with side trips to additional treasures of Italian civilization. This class for adults over 50 meets Mondays through May 1st (no class on April 10th).
