From the 19th up until the early 20th century, Geneva admitted a large number of political refugees from Europe and the world.

During World War II, Geneva was chosen as the headquarters of the Allies which later became the United Nations. Today, Geneva also houses the headquarters of many other international organizations: the World Trade Organization (WTO), the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the World Health Organization (WHO), among many others. During our trip, we’ll make a stop at the United Nations headquarters and the giant fountain Jet d’Eau – the defining visual of Geneva. The Jet reaches heights of more than 450 feet.

Day 11

Welcome to Pisa (Italy), where the Leaning Tower of Pisa is its iconic landmark. Tower of Pisa is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa, known worldwide for its unintended tilt. The tower is situated in the Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo), together with the Pisa Cathedral and the Pisa Baptistry.

The tower’s tilt began during construction in the 12th century, caused by an inadequate foundation on the ground, which was too soft on one side to properly support the structure’s weight. The tilt increased in the decades before the structure was completed in the 14th century. It gradually increased until the structure was stabilized (and the tilt partially corrected) by efforts in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Journey to Florence, the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. After dinner at your hotel, if time allows, we’ll take a stroll in the Old Town of Florence. (B/D)
