It’s a city’s unique characteristics that give it its personality.
Venice is known for its canals. The Florence Duomo and Pisa’s Leaning Tower show that architectural icons come in many shapes and sizes. The Principality of Monaco is all about glitz, with its palace and casino, while Paris reveals itself in many ways, from the Tuileries gardens to the cafés on the Champs-Élysées

Offered to all students, staff, and faculty of Ohio State Marion. For more information, visit: and enter tour number 1799762FE, or contact, Dr. Zuheir Alidib at:
