Step outside the norm.

Every summer, Walks searches out experiences that go a step or two beyond the normal tourist trails to offer intrepid travelers something just a little more exciting. From Renaissance artists and French Impressionists to ancient sports stadiums, classic movie studios, opera houses, forgotten museums, mouth-watering food scenes, and the most risqué archeological exhibit in Europe, there's a tour here for anyone in search of something a little different.

If you're heading to Italy, Paris, or New York this summer take a look at a few of these singular tours; you never know what you might find.
