Bob and Lynn Helton along with Carl and Debra Yost have decided on perhaps our best trip ever. Our dates are October 16-28, 2018 and we will experience Mediterranean culture at its finest in Sicily and Southern Italy.
Our itinerary includes such must see places as Taormina, Siricusa, Agrigento, Palermo, Naples, Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast, Capri and Rome. The things we will see along the way are just too numerous to list.
Some say the Greeks left behind more monuments in Sicily than in Greece. So many different cultures left behind remains on the island that it’s almost like a world tour just visiting the island. We will get about as close as you want to Mt. Etna, Europe’s tallest volcano, and it is still active!
Our tour company (new for us this time) specializes in Italy, is run by an Italian American and has a goal of letting every visitor become an honorary Italian for the duration of the trip. During the trip we will take a fast ferry, an overnight ferry and even our own private motorboat cruise around the island of Capri.
If you want to become an Italian you must eat like one. We will have two ‘farm to table’ dinners, plus a special welcome and departure dinner and a few (4) purely Italian lunches along the way. Of course we can wash it all down with some of the best wine on the planet, along with a taste of Limoncello.
We have built into this 13 day trip more free time than ever before so you can enjoy Italy the way Italians do. Rick Steves of PBS travel says the Italians are experts at “Il dolce fa niente” or the sweetness of doing nothing.
We will have brochures available soon, and hope to begin sign-ups at the beginning of May. Tell your friends about this magnificent adventure but, a word to the wise, our trips fill fast and we have a 44 person limit. 17 people are confirmed. If you have any questions email email@example.com.
Carl, Debra, Bob and Lynn believe that travel changes people. We call our trips pilgrimages believing that you will grow spiritually as you experience different cultures, live in the community of other pilgrims and visit another corner of God’s beautiful creation.
