If you are a fan of history & arts, this is a great trip for you. However, Italy is a place that speaks to most people and this trip is a great opportunity to explore a culture that influences our modern world. Know more about the medieval history of Europe and the Middle Ages which lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. It would definitely add to your experience to read up a little about Renaissance and Roman Empire before joining this trip.
Also, this trip includes walking tours (Italian cities are best experienced when explored on foot) and a cycling tour. For teenagers this is usually not a problem but we ask the participants to be prepared for the experience.
