Field trips to Second Life and More

Interested in immersive worlds? Don't have the time to explore it on your own? How about a field trip moderated by knowledgebale guides? Synthravels is the first organization to offer a complete guide service to all the people who want to make a tour in virtual worlds without knowing these new realities, even if they have never put their feet in these strange, synthetic grounds. The tours and the destinations are chosen by the staff of Synthravels, composed by programmers, architects, experienced video gamers.

The concept of Synthravels is by Mario Gerosa and by Matteo Esposito of Imille.
Mario is a journalist who has a long experience in travel. He has been organizing in-world meetings with famous Second Life residents for a project of the Indiana University. In July 2006 he launched the project for the preservation of Virtual Architectural Heritage.
