In the Footsteps of Galileo Galilei to Venice, Florence and Rome
A newly designed tour with Travelex International will take you on a unique tour of the places where Galileo Galilei, one of the most famous scientists of the Renaissance, worked, from 27 September to 7 October 2023. Starting in Venice, we will explore Padua and Galileo’s famous chair at the university there, then travel via Bologna to Pisa and Florence, where Galileo discovered the laws of the pendulum and conducted research for the Medici. Near Pisa and Rome we visit modern research facilities such as the gravitational wave detector LISA and the laboratory in the Gran Sasso massif. Finally, we will go on a private tour to Castel Gandolfo to the Vatican Observatory.
