At a Glance

Welcome to Italy and Greece, the heart and soul of the Mediterranean, the birthplace of two momentous civilizations and home to some of planet Earth’s most spectacular food, art, and architecture. Our journey takes you to the famous sites and to some hidden gems. One day, you’ll climb the Parthenon, the next you’ll be white-water rafting down the ancient Lao River in Southern Italy. Imagine Swiss guards leading you through the Vatican and being on the frontlines of Italian conservation helping scientists study loggerhead sea turtles. You’ll tour the volcanic ruins of Pompeii, then climb Mt. Vesuvius, one of the few remaining active volcanoes in Europe. From marine biology to archaeology, volcanology to mythology—this diverse trip will change the way you see the world. It might even change the way you say good-bye—Ciao!
