After a successful tour of Germany in 2016, Mt. Zion Lutheran Church of Greenfield, WI has organized a trip in September 2018 to take in the riches of Italy’s Christian art and history and its many other wonders. Italy’s historic and cultural heritage is so rich and so vast that very few countries in Europe can match its treasure. Our journey has been custom designed to highlight some of the most important sites for Christians and also to savor some of the country’s most delightful and beautiful places. The tour begins with several days in Rome, focusing on important Christian sites, including a morning devoted to Luther’s stay there in 1510. The tour continues to such sites as Assisi, Pisa, Florence, Siena, Ravenna, Venice, and Tuscany, the cradle of the Renaissance. September is an ideal time to visit this region. For more information, go to Mt. Zion’s website, and be sure to click the links below to view the brochure with all the details of this once in a lifetime trip. We hope you will join us!
