Rome: The Eternal City
THMS Travel Club
March 20 to March 26, 2017
Rome was once the center of the entire Western world, and history is everywhere. It’s in the stands of the Colosseum, which held 10,000 spectators; it’s among the ruins of the ancient Forum, where Julius Caesar delivered many of his great speeches; it’s in the Sistine Chapel, where Michelangelo transformed the ceiling into one of the world’s true artistic masterpieces.

Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, extension to Hiroshima
As your Shinkasen bullet train reaches speeds of 200 mph, the lines between city and countryside blur. Traveling through the heart of Japan, consider how seamlessly technology and tradition coexist. In Tokyo, pop culture flashes in HD from 22nd-century skyscrapers alongside Buddhist temples and parks filled with cherry trees. Kyoto treasures its hot springs and bamboo forests, but it's also the home of Nintendo.
