Potomac, MD (PRWEB) September 10, 2014
Following in the footsteps of the famous “Monuments Men”, and inspired by Robert M. Edsel’s book, Saving Italy, Monument Travel is offering a small boutique art tour to Paris, Pisa, Florence, Siena and Rome. Limited to a maximum of 40 guests, the 10 day deluxe trip will answer the question “What happened to the art during WWII?” Starting in Paris, participants will tour the Louvre, Musée Jeu du Paume and the Musée d’Orsay with a local art expert guide. Traveling on to Italy, the tour includes Pisa, Florence, Siena, Rome and the often missed Abbey at Monte Cassino.
“So inspired by Robert M. Edsel’s books, “Monuments Men” and “Saving Italy”, we developed a tour specially to learn more about the now famous group of Allied Forces and their mission” explains Ms. Lane, owner and founder of Monument Travel.
In order to provide the finest tour essentials, Monument Travel is partnering with AlliedPRA of France and Italy, a top-notch destination management company, well known for providing excellent travel experiences. Accommodations include InterContinental Paris l’Opera, St. Regis Florence and the St. Regis Rome.
