Highlights from Past Trips

In late October 2017, a group of alumni, family, and friends spent a week in Venice, Italy, on a tour led by Mary Ann Calo, Batza professor of art and art history, emerita.

On private guided tours of the city’s most famous sights and visits to hidden local gems, the group experienced the history, art, and culture of Venice. Highlights included a private visit to St. Mark's Basilica with current Colgate students studying abroad in Venice, an after-hour tour of the Penny Guggenheim Museum with dinner in Peggy's Garden, a visit to the Venetian state archives to see a letter from Galileo to the Pope, and much more.
