of the most incredible experiences in a personís lifetime. However,
what constitutes a moving episode in the life of an adult is not
always the same for a child. Creative Corner offers a unique
program for the children of travelers guaranteed to create lasting
memories of a great vacation for everyone in the family.

Florentine masterpieces were made. Using demonstrations and hand-on
activities, the Renaissance will come alive for your child. But,

see the actual paintings, sculptures, and buildings.

families for centuries.
