Abstract (Document Summary)

"Umbria is called the green heart of Italy," said tour leader Tannis Kobrinsky. "It's a more authentic experience. Tuscany has become so touristy." The group will stay in a 12th century villa near Gubbio, where cooking classes, yoga, Pilates and massage are available.

Among the stops on the itinerary are Varanasi, Khajuraho, Agra and Jaipur. In Delhi, participants tour the old and new city, visiting the Parliament House, the President's House and India Gate.

In Varanasi, they tour the city, meet with a numerologist and take a cruise on the Ganges River. Other highlights include visits to the temples of Khajuraho, the medieval city of Orcha, on the way to Agra and Jaipur. Travelers tour the Taj Mahal, the Agra Fort and the Amber Fort in Jaipur.
