see larger map >>

September 28 to October 7, 2022

Come join us as we survey the delights of rustic southern Italy—1,000-year-old olive groves, rugged landscapes dotted with rock churches, ancient Greek and Roman sites and glamorous towns along the sun-splashed Amalfi Coast.

A road less traveled. Experience an authentic way of life, away from the crowds, with visits to some lesser-known gems in southern Italy. Trulli spectacular! Be awed by Alberobello’s 1,500 trulli—intriguing stone structures found only in this region. Cave dweller. Explore the amazing hill town of Matera, known for its churches and sassi, or dwellings carved into the rock, and stay in a fabulous new kind of hotel housed in the grottoes. Ancient treasures. Observe the evocative ruins of Pompeii and Paestum. Cliffhanger ending. Marvel at the picturesque villages perched on the cliffs of the world-famous Amalfi Coast.
