Tuscany is calling! Join us as we journey through the wonders of Italy. Rome, the Eternal City has attracted artists and travellers alike through its long history to discover its architecture, art, culture, power and politics. Marvel at the wonders of St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel, make a wish at the Trevi Fountain and gaze upon the magnificent Roman Forum. Heading north we discover the beauty that is the Tuscan countryside and the hill top city states that controlled this region and still dominate its rolling hills. Wander through the streets of Assisi, San Gimignano, Siena, and of course, no trip to Tuscany would be complete without a stroll through Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance. Discover the history of Ravenna and then spend a day exploring the lagoons and secret alleys of Venice before crossing the Alps into Innsbruck then on to Bavaria for the highlight of our trip. For almost 400 years, the people of the alpine town of Oberammergau have fulfilled a vow to honour God through the Passion Play, a larger than life portrayal of the life and passion of Jesus. Every ten years the village devotes itself to this wonderful event, involving a cast of thousands, entirely made up of local residents. For over two years, characters take on their roles, reliving the important tales of the Bible. The Passion Play in Oberammergau only comes around every 10 years. With an event this rare and special most groups will sell out fast. Call today to reserve your places.
