After years of running Select Study Abroad we’ve learned that the kind of “girl bonding” that happens while traveling abroad is unmatched. We’ve watched countless students arrive strangers and leave life-long friends. We want to take that incredibly powerful bonding experience and bring it to families, and more specifically, mothers and daughters. What could be better than celebrating this unique relationship while exploring Tuscany!
So, we are thrilled to offer a unique mother-daughter experience for sorority members, alumnae, their mothers or daughters (or grandmothers, granddaughters, aunts, nieces, goddaughters, and godmothers)!!
We know that traveling side by side and experiencing the beauty and culture of Italy will only strengthen your bond and create the kinds of memories that last a lifetime. To do this, our carefully crafted itinerary includes personalized excursions, exclusive activities, and memorable meals designed specifically for mothers and daughters (or…see above).
While Florence will be our home base, we will also venture to other cities in Tuscany. Each day will focus on an aspect of Italian culture to discover together. These themed days feature educational activities, tastings and demonstrations, mouth-watering meals, and hands-on classes, all while bonding with one another!
Artisan Workshops and Wonders: Demonstrations and shop visits
Michelangelo and the Renaissance: See the David and other artistic treasures
Vino and Vistas: Wine tasting and lunch in Chianti and an evening in Siena
Florence Fashionista: Visits to a leather-making school and Italian fashion houses

Buon Appetito!: Italian Cooking Class with Marco, our favorite chef with a visit to Florence’s central food market

*This trip will immediately follow the Mother & Daughter trip to the Amalfi Coast and precede the regular Select Study Abroad sorority programs in June. Some overlap will occur between this trip and the regular summer session, but daughters are welcome to stay on to participate in the student program immediately following the trip. A combination of the Mother & Daughter Trips to the Amalfi Coast AND Tuscany would include transportation from Amalfi to Florence. The dates for this incredible trip are from Saturday, May 12th (Depart the U.S. to arrive on the 13th) until Sunday, May 27th. Contact us to learn more!
