Art lovers unite! Central Holidays has introduced a new Da Vinci Tour, available for group travel beginning this fall.
On this 12-day journey, participants will follow in the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci’s life throughout Italy and France—beginning in da Vinci’s hometown of Vinci in Tuscany, Italy and ending in Paris, France.
