Why does AWA organize Sojourns? During over twenty years of part-time Florentine living and after decades dedicated to preserving the city’s treasures, AWA’s founder Jane Fortune has formed a network of friends and colleagues who graciously spare no effort when it comes to create special, luxury itineraries. In order to partake in this special tour, each Sojourner contributes 500 dollars to the restoration of art by women in Florence’s museums and churches. We at AWA firmly believe that protecting art is strictly linked to loving it—and to love art one must experience it! The Sojourns offer both AWA hosts and our guests the chance to fall in love with Florence again and again!
