    Northern Italy Adventure

    Get off the typical tourist path and explore some of the most popular places in Italy while having them all to yourself! You’ll settle into a comfortable converted country estate as your base for the week. Each day will offer new adventures as we explore the Lombardy and Veneto regions. We’ll care for animals, explore villages, learn to make pasta, and immerse ourselves in the floating city of Venice. This taste of Italy will give you an unparalleled introduction to Italy and leave you hungry for more!

    Italy: North to South

    Come and visit historical Italy and take in years of culture, food, and art as you make your way from top to bottom of one of the world’s most unique countries. Start your adventure exploring Venice and its canals by boat. Continue south, stopping in Florence and spending the day in the rolling hills of Tuscany. Afterward, head to the capital of Rome for the gladiator experience of a lifetime. Continue to Naples (home of the Pizza) for a pizza-making class. Then onto historic Pompeii to visit the ruins, enjoy a farm stay in Matera to learn about the rural traditions of Italy that have been passed down for generations. Conclude your trip with a visit to the coast for a day of swimming in the blue/green grottos lining the Adriatic Sea.

    Italy & Greece: Cultural Immersion and Turtles

    Combine the popular Northern Italy Adventure and Island Turtle Conservation programs for one epic experience!

    Start your journey exploring the highlights of Northern Italy: the sights, the foods, the history, and more. Then make the jump to the Greek Island of Kefalonia and dive into the life of a marine conservationist as you help protect endangered sea turtles.

    Choose this combination program and we’ll take care of providing you with an extra day of exploring Italy and your flight that takes you to Greece to join your new group.
