DETAILS

Italy Discovery is a well-balanced combination of must-see touring, eye-opening Jewish experiences, and a unique opportunity to forge friendships with fellow Jewish teens in one of the world’s most beautiful regions.

Journey back in time and explore the origins of Western Civilization in the Italian cities of Rome, Florence, Venice, Pisa, Milan, Bologna, and Verona. Then, for a change of pace and climate, travel deep into the mountainous reaches of Slovenia where you’ll canoe on a glacial lake, raft down a roaring river, explore a massive network of underground caves and enjoy the crisp alpine air hiking in the Slovenian highlands.

As a Jewish travel experience, Italy Discovery is also about retracing the 2,000+ year history of continuous Jewish life in Italy. You’ll find out what it meant to be Jewish during the Roman Empire, you’ll contemplate the enduring mystery embodied in the Arch of Titus, and you’ll explore the world’s original ghetto in Venice.
