Today we are joined by professional step-on guide, Curt, who is a history buff with an expertise on the evolution of Los Angeles, and is especially loved by our travelers for his charismatic personality and fun stories. L.A. is home to the nation's fifth-largest Italian population, and the Italian presence in the American West pre-dates our nation's founding and was instrumental in the development of L.A. as one of the world's great cities. This unique tour highlights the Italian-inspired treasures around the city and emphasizes the positive influences the Italian culture has had on the architecture, fashion, art, food and cinema. We'll visit the Pasadena City Hall, an iconic and architecturally-significant landmark that pays homage to the 16th century Italian architect, Andrea Palladio. We'll visit a Catholic church that features architectural elements dating back to the early days of Christianity in Rome. At the peaceful Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, we'll view reproductions of artwork of two of Italy's greatest artists - Leonardo da Vinci's stunning stained-glass masterpiece of The Last Supper, and Michelangelo's most famous sculptures - this is the only place in the world where artwork from these legends can be seen together in one location. Enjoy lunch on your own at the San Antonio Winery's cafeteria-style, Maddalena's Restaurant - a true gem tucked away in a nondescript industrial area of Los Angeles. It has been serving delicious Italian food in a festive atmosphere for over 100 years! We'll visit Italian Hall - the oldest remaining building from L.A.'s historic Little Italy - to explore the Italian American Museum's interactive cultural and historical displays that highlight the significance that Italians have had in the region. A highlight of the day will be time and included sweet treat and time to browse Eataly, L.A.'s newest Italian marketplace. This two-story, "temple of la dolce vita" is a massive emporium and true foodie paradise that features all things edible and drinkable Italian! All visits subject to change. Price: $99
