While Tufts University is strongly discouraging all but essential travel at this time, we remain very hopeful that, with the roll out of the vaccine, and health and safety protocols in place, we will be able to travel again soon. This schedule reflects current travel projections and is subject to change as we monitor the developments of the pandemic and the latest travel advisories. Please check back here often for updates. Our tour operator partners have created more flexible terms and conditions to help you feel comfortable when you decide to travel again. The decision to return to travel is a personal one. Please consider your own comfort level and if you will enjoy yourself while traveling. We look forward to welcoming you back and want you to have the pleasant, rich experience we know traveling the world can be!
"We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." -T.S. Eliot

In the spirit of travel, let’s head to Italy through the lens of Venice! This panel-style lecture will cover an array of thought-provoking topics with a special focus on Venice’s environmental challenges and engineering feats, storied writers who sought inspiration, and the history of virtual reality in this distinct Italian region.
