A Network of Scholars
The core of Context is the network of scholars and experts who lead our walks. (Borrowing some language from the museum world) these "docents" hail from a wide variety of disciplines including art history, cuisine, environmental science, archaeology, and classical studies. What unites them is a deep knowledge and passion for their city and its cultural heritage. Whether one is spending three hours with a Byzantinist in the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul or learning proper Renaissance fresco making technique with an artist in Florence, our docents are trained to take you deeper into these rich cities to help you explore their history.
There are currently over 200 docents in the Context network.
