    Grand Tour of Italy (June 2024)

    Group Leader: Bev Shiotelis,

    Join me on this 10-day grand tour of Italy. History comes alive among the ruins of Pompeii and along the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Fall in love with Italy while getting to know da Vinci, walking in the steps of gladiators, and visiting the birthplace of saints. Cruise the canals of Venice, enjoy beautiful Florence, and take a relaxing boat ride to the beautiful island of Capri.  This is an amazing adventure that will have us traversing the entire country, marveling at the incredible architecture, and tossing a coin in Trevi Fountain to ensure our return.
