Full disclosure: The hardscuffling staff went exactly two places during our student years – an ill-fated trip to New Orleans (which we prefer not to detail) and a calamitous jaunt to Puerto Rico (which we will recount upon request).
Neither of which cost more than $300.
As opposed to the $7990 for Italy: Farm to Table in Tuscany, Campania and Sicily.
Different Times, yeah?
