with Elia Locardi and Ken Kaminesky!
DATES: May 12th-20th, 2016
(including arrival & departure days)
As photographers, artists, and world travelers, there’s simply no country quite like Italy and we’re very excited to share our love of it with you!
This Italy photo tour was created with the intention of making it a dream tour and providing participants with a truly unique experience. Though the emphasis will be on photography, it will be a cultural journey, capturing and enriching all of the senses – you’ll be inspired by the stunning architecture, rich and textured landscapes, enormous wealth of culture and history and of course… the food and wine!
Your photo tour leaders, Elia Locardi & Ken Kaminesky, have led photo tours & workshops across the globe. Along with expert Italian guides from Walks of Italy, they’ll take you from Rome to Tuscany, Florence, and Cinque Terre highlighting some of the premier photography spots that each region has to offer.
We’ll visit some of the most beautiful and photogenic portions of Italy as we lead you on various winery tours, tastings and history tours, all blending beautifully with the unique photographic opportunities and instruction. While we have specific itineraries planned, we also allow some flexibility to take advantage of photographic opportunities we encounter along the way.
So travel back in time with us on this one-of-a-kind Photo Tour of Italy!
