Italy is one of the most popular destinations to visit, and it’s easy to see why. Italy is abundantly blessed in its history, architecture, food, culture, and art, along with magnificent scenery throughout the country. Some people visit again and again. I have prepared a tour that brings you the best of what Italy offers. Join us on this delightful experience from November 8 -18, 2021.
We offer you an inclusive 11-day tour that brings you to Venice, Pisa, Florence, the beautiful Tuscan and Neapolitan countrysides, Sorrento, the stunning Amalfi coast, fantastic views of Mt. Vesuvius, the unearthed city of Pompeii, and Eternal Rome. Stand on the Appian Way and view the Circus Maximus, the famous chariot-racing arena where Christians were also martyred. This entire tour package is $3,099, including roundtrip flights from New York and most of your meals in Italy.
Have you visited Italy previously? There is a tradition at Rome's Trevi Fountain that if you face away from the water and toss in a coin over your shoulder, you will someday return. This is your opportunity to do just that. Revisit marvelous places, experience the cuisine in the land where it was created, and enjoy new sites with our itinerary.
Get the brochure below for details on this marvelous trip. There is strong interest and we expect this tour to fill quickly. Book early to save your place, then enjoy the anticipation as our departure date draws near. I hope you will join us!

"My wife Linda and I wanted to tour Israel. We let life crowd it out of the picture. Then my wife took an archeological class that Luke Chandler taught at Florida College. That was it. We packed our bags and were ready to go.
"What impressed me? Luke took care of every detail before and during our trip. He tended to our needs throughout Israel. Luke’s knowledge of the Bible and the land of Israel, wrapped in his passion, made each day an adventure. He brought the prophets of old to life, and he brought visual clarity to the New Testament.
"There are defining moments in everyone’s life. When you take the trip to Israel with Luke, you will experience defining moments that you could not have experienced in any other way. There are a few things in life I would recommend to everyone. Taking the trip to Israel with Luke Chandler as your guide is one of them."

"Traveling and touring Israel with Luke Chandler was notable for both ease of arrangements and complete enjoyment of the many cities and sites on our Itinerary, more than 25 in 10 days! At each ancient site, we were blessed to have Luke tell us the dramatic stories there, from the Bible as well as archaeology and history.
