Just when you thought you knew Italy, along comes Apulia. Let’s discover this delightfully different region together. Our small-group journey will lead us from Lecce, the “Florence of the South,” to a whitewashed hillside village; from magnificent Baroque architecture to conical-roofed limestone huts; and from a vibrant seaport to a Stone Age city of cave dwellings.

Few places on earth stir the heart, mind, and soul like Israel. On our 12-day, small-group adventure, we’ll explore the remarkable culture and miraculous nature of this land. We’ll get to know Israelis in all walks of life, from artists to kibbutzniks. We’ll eat (and learn to cook) their foods, drink their wines, and shop in their marketplaces. We’ll visit sites that have shaped the course of humanity — including the caves of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the streets of Nazareth, and the mountain fortress of Masada.
