Explore Italy from top to bottom on the most epic Italian adventure possible!  Fly in to Rome, Italy and get started right away with a tour through the Colosseum where the Gladiators fought and Romans went for entertainment as early as 80 AD.  Walk down the Forum taking in history that has centuries of stories to tell.  Add the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain, and fresh gelato to cap off an excellent day.  Take an unforgettable tour in the Vatican where the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica are must-see sights.  Participate in baptisms for the dead at the Rome, Italy temple (pending availability).

See the iconic city of Venice.  Participate in private Gondoliering lessons while floating the Grand Canal along with back city passageways.  Get up close to the locals and way of life through our explorations with our private local guide.  Take a boat ride to Burano to discover bright colored buildings and quaint waterways.

Travel to La Spezia where we will start our ultimate and final adventure along the Cinque Terra coastline, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a breathtaking string of five centuries old seaside villages connected by hiking trails and trains.  We will spend much of these few days exploring villages, talking with locals, train hopping, and hiking.  Take a quick stop at the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa on our way back to Rome and enjoy this symbol of Italy.

Adventure through the breathtaking slopes of the Dolomites, wind through the streets of Milan, and sit in hot springs outside of Tuscany.  Take a funicular overlooking Lake Como and visit the island of Capri. There is no better Italian itinerary out there, we know, we've been there many many times!

Kenady and Tre Clark

Meet Kenady and Tre Clark, avid globetrotters who always have their next journey in the works (even if Tre doesn’t know about it yet)!

Kenady's excitement for adventure is matched only by her love for delicious food - so you can plan on many gelato stops. Kenady's journey has taken her far and wide, as she moved 14 times in the first 14 years of her life, finally ending up in Heber City, Utah. After serving a mission in Missouri St. Louis, Kenady got to work at school and is currently a senior in BYU's esteemed Journalism program specializing in sports journalism.

Tre, also from Heber City, is your go-to guy for an exciting game of basketball, any competitive board or card game, or to help you find a mouthwatering slice of pizza (because he probably has already found the best in the area). With a mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina, under his belt, Tre's global perspective enriches any trip he is on! Tre is currently a UVU student aspiring towards a career in business management.

Kenady's journey with Illuminate Trips began in 2017 when she participated as a youth in the Church History trip. In 2022, she and Tre took on the role of chaperones for Church History. Now, Kenady works for Illuminate Trips as their Travel Manager.

Kenady and Tre are excited to adventure through the stunning landscapes of Italy with you in the summer of 2024!
