Italy

Italy is a traveler’s dream and an item on everyone’s bucket list. No other country in the world contains as many historical sites and artifacts that provide a glimpse at the very root of western civilization. Where else can you stand and see the place where the basis for modern government was forged? Where else can you see so many timeless and priceless pieces of ancient art and architecture in just a few days?

Natural history, as well as human history, is on full display in the massive peninsular nation with stunning views of the Dolomites and Alps in the north, idyllic Mediterranean countryside along the coast, and broad pastoral landscapes of rolling hills in between. Italians are an incredibly varied and diverse people, but the one constant is their openness and sense of hospitality towards travelers. And, of course, once you have tried true Italian food, there’s no going back to anything else!

  • My daughter came home from school one day saying she wanted to go to Costa Rica after a presentation from Walking Tree. Seeing and feeling her excitement and motivation we got everything together for her to go. I am so thankful that we did that. She came home overflowing with stories of how wonderful it was. She was fearful and nervous going in but coming home, a completely different person. She was able to use the Spanish she has been learning for 10 years and cemented her love for the language. She absolutely loved her host family, from her little sister, to mom and Grandma and Grandpa. Going back home after her day of work was one of her favorite things. The confidence gained in the service work was amazing. She did things she never thought she would be able to do. The group grew to be great friends. Hope she has this opportunity again.
