Brussels, June 2009
MWNF Travel, the travel platform of MWNF, has now been entirely restructured and redesigned. The new version is accessible through the MWNF portal or directly at www.mwnftravels.net.
The announced tours are organised by local travel agents and are based on the MWNF Exhibition Trails. Programmes and logistics can be adapted according to requirements. All tours are accompanied by specialist tour lecturers. The thematic guides to the Exhibition Trails,
available in different languages, together with the Discover Islamic Art Virtual Museum
provide comprehensive reading material to prepare for each tour.
The programme 2009 / 2010 is entirely dedicated to the Islamic Mediterranean and includes tours to Egypt, Italy (Sicily), Jordan, Morocco, the Palestinian Territories, Portugal, Spain, Syria, Tunisia and Turkey. 14 exclusive tours are an invitation to discover 1,470 museums, monuments and archaeological sites relating to 1,300 years of history, from the establishment of the Umayyad Caliphate in 660 until the end of the Ottoman Empire in 1922. The MWNF Travel Info Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org
) provides information in Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
