Join us on an incredible program as you cruise through Sorrento and along the Amalfi Coast. The knowledge of our incredible guides - the result of years spent living and studying in the country - allows you to enjoy a safe overseas experience filled with abundant options.
Join us on a teen travel adventure through Italy, diving into the best Italy has to offer while giving back to the local community! Our first stop is the Cinque Terre, where we will join some key members of the community in order to complete our service project. A longstanding relationship between Travel For Teens and the local community of Monterosso allows our participants to work on meaningful service projects every year!
We will volunteer our time at a Capuchin monastery to help with the maintenance of their fruit and vegetable garden, help restore the trails that have been damaged and closed to the public, and improve the facilities at the local schools. As if giving back weren’t rewarding enough, you’ll enjoy stunning Mediterranean vistas every day as you marvel at the picture-perfect coast of the Italian Riviera, with its five pastel-painted fishing towns nestled into the cliffside.
After our time in the Cinque Terre, we’ll stop at a private Tuscan estate for a cooking lesson and winery tour (optional) en route to Rome to discover the ancient wonders of the Eternal City! We’ll spend our final days soaking up the sun in southern Italy’s hottest destination: the Amalfi Coast. Enjoy breathtaking views, delicious food, rich culture, and Italian hospitality every step of the way this summer!
