So I was talking to my mom this morning about how much I love art history (nothing new, of course) and she mentioned that I should think about going on a tour to Europe next summer. She went on one when she was in college because she liked art history too, and she really loved it and said she found a good price with other LDS people. So now I'm looking into it, but there are so many decisions to make. Most of the LDS tours are to Central America or Church History sites, not Europe. Also, I would love to go to Germany because I am learning that language, but also to Italy, France, and England for the art - but the tours that include all those destinations are pricey. I really want this LDS tour that includes Rome, Florence, Venice, Innsbruck, Lucerne, Paris, and London for $1,909, but it's scheduled for 2009 and that's a little soon! I'll see if I can find it for next summer. If anyone has ideas, suggestions, or other websites I haven't looked at, I would love to hear your advice!


  1. Just as an idea that you can watch for I had a friend from BYU who was interested in doing the same thing, but the group she wanted to go with was full... or something, anyways, it worked out where BYU's Marriott School of Business ended up allowing her to go with their group (even though she wasn't in the business school). Anyways, they went to all the same places she would have gone with the other group and still loved it! Just an idea of an option to keep open!

  2. If you can find a couple friends who want to go as well, a good guide book can get you around on your own pretty well and you can always do tours in the museums or cities that you want to learn more about. I went with a friend after college and it was to this day one of my favorite experiences. Way cheaper on your own, too, and I thought it was really fun to plan out where we were going and what we were going to see in each country.

  3. I know the the business school goes on trips to Europe frequently. All majors are welcome to come. My sister, Megan, is going all over Europe (solely for the art). I don't know too much about it, but they go to the places in Europe that you are interested in seeing. I'm sure Megan would be happy to answer any questions if you had any.
