Michael Mullooly will lead you to the mysterious and alluring Myanmar (Burma) on a tour of Buddhist temples and treasures. In the past ten years, Myanmar has opened its doors and encouraged tourist to visit the many sites and wonders closed to outsiders for so many years.
Our tour of Italy will explore the glories of art and antiquities of one of Europe’s most popular destinations. We’ll visit historic sites of the Roman Empire in Rome and Vatican City, the art in Florence, and the beauty in Venice. Consider joining us on another international adventure.
Be among the first to witness Burma’s ancient beauty, and experience its modern renewal. In Yangon, the capitol, behold the staggering Schwedagon, the “Golden Holy One,” the crowning glory of Burma. In Mandalay, revel in the center of Burmese culture. In nearby Mingun, ring the world’s largest bell, weighing 90 tons. In Bagan, be amazed by thousands of temples resting on the banks of the Irrawaddy River. Discover the beauty of Burma not only in its glorious art history, but in the gentleness of the Burmese people.
Beautiful Burma awaits you!
