Our program, as well as featuring the best of the Italian countryside, includes the great cities and icons of the regions visited, from the Renaissance excesses of Florence, Pisa and Lucca to the Umbrian medieval cities of Perugia, Gubbio and St Francis' Assisi. In the north, we visit the ancient university seats of Verona and Padua as well as stunningly beautiful Venice while, in the south, we visit the spectacularly cosmopolitan city of Naples as well as the Roman remains of Pompeii and the island retreat of Capri.
For the medieval traveler, religious houses provided a safe and convenient refuge with a warm bed and a hearty meal. This tradition still exists in Italy and, as travelers, participants in our program will have their experience of Italy enhanced by stays in the modern day version of these ancient religious houses. Although many of these still enjoy superb locations and the historic ambiance of yesteryear, facilities have been updated to ensure that the needs of the modern traveler are satisfied. All offer rooms with en-suite facilities together with meeting rooms, lounges and dining facilities.
