All learners will be invited to a general information session about the trips as well as an individual webinar that includes cultural, historical, and overall information about the location. In addition, you will receive a media list with more information about the location prior to the departure date. Once all learners have arrived at the location, there will be a welcome dinner and orientation with Walden staff and the tour director.


Each learner will receive a recommended packing list prior to departure, but please note that each country has cultural clothing expectations. For example, when visiting churches in Italy, shorts and hats are not allowed and shoulders need to be covered. Also, we strongly encourage all learners to pack one or two pairs of comfortable walking shoes. No dress shoes are needed for any of the trips.

It is extremely important to pack light, as there will be no one to assist with luggage. Only pack what you can carry or pull on your own—possibly even uphill, in some locations.


There are no required vaccinations for these trips, but as always, we recommend checking with your doctor if you have any travel concerns, such as motion sickness.
