12 day Oberammergau Passion Play Reformation Tour

June 07th - June 18th 2020
June 28th - July 10th 2020

The history of the Oberammergau Passion Play dates back to the middle of the Thirty Years War. In 1633, after months of suffering from the Bubonic Plague, the people of Oberammergau took a vow to perform the “Play of the Suffering, Dying and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ” every ten years if they were spared. Miraculously from that point on they all survived and true to their promise, the first performance was in 1634. This simple performance was held in a meadow and acted by the villagers. After 1674 they decided to change the date, so as to fall every ten years beginning in 1680. The only time it was not performed, was during World War II. This time the play will open on May 16, 2020 and ends on October 4, 2040.

Classic Italy & Oberammergau Passion Play

Custom trip - As you please!

Italy is a country high on everybody's 'must see' list, here is a place that has been attracting tourists since at least the 15th century (and we don't include the various conquering invaders!) The traditional 'Grand Tour' of Europe was incomplete without time spent studying in one of the great renaissance cities.

 

This tour encompasses the traditional great sights. How could one not visit Italy and see classical Rome, the treasures of Florence, the fashion capital Milan or the Assisi of St Francis. In addition to visiting these major iconic sights, get more in depth and experience the local towns, villages and amazing cuisine. This is a tour designed to introduce you to Italy's magnificent culture, history and natural beauties. Also, subject to availability, can include a Papal Audience in Vatican City.
