Center Furthers Mission to be “Window to the World”

Pairs with Local Tour Group To Offer Travel Experience

The Cultural Center in New York Mills More partners with For Le$$ Tours to offer a group travel experience to Italy in the summer of 2019.

The group leaves on June 21 and returns July 2, 2019. With stops in Venice, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Sorrento, and Pompeii, the trip begins with a tour of the Lindt chocolate factory in Lucerne, Switzerland. Ride in a gondola, snap a shot of a friend holding up the leaning tower, see Michelangelo’s David, and taste the Mediterranean’s best pizza!

The tour is inclusive: the $3,750 fee includes round-trip airfare, eleven nights’ accommodations, train tickets and all travel costs, all admissions and tour fees, and a private guide for the whole trip. A $500.00 deposit is due at time of registration.

To expand the opportunity to benefit the broader community, the Cultural Center is also planning future programs here at home to support and enhance this “Window to the World” experience. All will be invited to participate in future classes and events leading up to the trip to learn more about Italian art and culture. There will also be a gathering following the trip for travelers to share their photos, souvenirs, and experiences with fellow community members.

An informational meeting and first chance at reserving a place on the tour is held at the Cultural Center on Thursday, May 10, 2018 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  Interested persons are encouraged to attend. Space is limited to 25 travelers; early registration is strongly encouraged. Representatives from More For Le$$ Tours and the Cultural Center are available for questions.
