A pilgrimage is an outer journey that expresses the inner movements of the heart, mind, and soul. Like clay to the potter’s hands, or stone and chisel to the sculpture, in pilgrimage, place becomes the raw material that reveals the sanctity of God in ourselves and the world. Resolve to make a journey in yourself and discover that your inner life is expressed in all that you do. Every step becomes a silent prayer, every meal becomes a feast, and every encounter with others recalls the love of God in neighbor.

Our Italy trip was a journey of a lifetime, Jesse and Nate were amazing guides, hosts and logistics planners and made our family trip something I will remember the rest of my life. I’m definitely planning to travel with Alithea again.

There was never a bad moment. Getting guided through St. Marks square when we first got to Venice was amazing. climbing the Duomo, having free time to walk around th shops before dinner in all the cities. The Sienna museum.

I had an incredible experience with Alithea's Athens and Cycladic Islands tour! Unlike being just a spectator, I truly felt like an active participant throughout the journey. The tour allowed me to fully immerse myself in Greece's rich culture, history, and breathtaking landscapes. From exploring the ancient wonders of Athens to discovering the hidden gems of the Cycladic Islands, every moment was filled with excitement and wonder. Alithea's attention to detail and personalized approach made the trip unforgettable, giving me the chance to experience all that Greece has to offer. I highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking a truly immersive and enriching travel experience. Thank you, Alithea, for an unforgettable adventure!

This trip was all we had hoped it would be. Alithea provided a full itinerary with historical and archaeological exploration, local cultural participation , adventure and , of course,  fun. The dinners and lunches provided were fabulous and our group was the absolute best companions  from around the country (and even the world !!) I will continue to watch for further offerings and I am sure will be booking again with Jesse and his organization.
