While seminar participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to Florence, Italy, we strongly recommend using Explore by Design for your travel arrangements. The Explore by Design office in Phoenix, AZ specializes in arranging itineraries to Italy, and are aware of the particular needs of participants in the Minerva Education seminars. This will also facilitate a seamless and comfortable transfer to Castellina in Chianti.


Italy travel expert Mary Anne Desmond will be happy to assist you with your travel needs, and will also be able to help you with additional travel you may want to do in connection with your participation in the seminar.
