P.S. We want to highlight a review from a member of a church trip to the Holy Land recently. They start:

“Our experience with Donny at Tradition Tours was upfront and honest from the very beginning. We were so impressed with the customer care and integrity through a 2020 trip cancellation that we wouldn't have even considered going with any other company!”

That’s the integrity piece that I mentioned. They go on:

“A tour to Israel can be overwhelming. Sights and sounds are new, culture is different, emotions are high. The care that Tradition Tours took to see that we were comfortable in our hotels, on our bus, and had good food to eat made it so much easier to enjoy the trip.”

Want us to help with your trip, too? Call us today. 1-855-958-6877, toll-free anywhere in the USA.

Siena's Enchantment: Delving into the Heart of Tuscan Medieval Elegance

Siena's Enchantment: Delving into the Heart of Tuscan Medieval Elegance

In the heart of Tuscany lies Siena, a city where medieval wonders meet cinematic fame, notably seen in the James Bond movie filmed within its ancient walls. Tradition Tours invites you on a captivating journey through Siena, blending historical exploration with the thrill of walking in the footsteps of cinematic icons.

Siena's cobbled streets, flanked by well-preserved medieval buildings, tell tales of history and artistry. At the center of this timeless city, the Piazza del Campo, renowned as one of Europe's most splendid medieval squares, serves as both a cultural hub and a backdrop to the electrifying Palio di Siena. This historic horse race, which takes place in the summer, encapsulates the city's vibrant spirit and communal heart.

The Palio di Siena is not just an event; it's a tradition steeped in rivalry and pride. Visit Siena with Tradition Tours and delve into the essence of this spectacle, explaining the significance of the 17 contrade (districts) that transform the Piazza del Campo into a lively mosaic of colors and emotions. As you explore, you'll feel the pulse of the city, much like the dynamic scenes captured in the world of James Bond.

A highlight of any visit to Siena, and a focal point of Tradition Tours, is the breathtaking Siena Cathedral (Duomo di Siena). This masterpiece of Italian Gothic architecture is a visual feast, with a facade adorned with intricate sculptures and an interior that boasts works by renowned artists like Donatello and Michelangelo. The nave's black and white striped columns create a striking, unforgettable image, making the cathedral a must-see on your journey.

For art lovers, Tradition Tours offers a deep dive into Siena's artistic heritage. The Pinacoteca Nazionale di Siena, with its extensive collection of Sienese paintings, and the Museo Civico in the Palazzo Pubblico, home to iconic frescoes, are explored in engaging narratives that highlight the city's significant role in the evolution of art.

If it’s food you are after, Tradition Tours ensures you taste the essence of Tuscany through local delicacies like pecorino cheese, wild boar salami, and panforte—a dense, spiced fruit and nut cake that is a hallmark of Sienese cuisine.

As day turns to evening, Siena's streets, glowing in the soft sunset light, invite strolls and time to unwind with an aperitivo at quaint local cafes, immersing you in the city's relaxed and welcoming ambiance.

Bottom line: with Tradition Tours, Siena is more than a destination; it's an experience that marries the allure of medieval history. Whether you're a history buff, art enthusiast, or food lover, Siena promises an unforgettable adventure, placing you at the heart of Italy's rich heritage and vibrant culture.

Tasting the Flavors of Athens

Greece’s capital, Athens, is where the old and the new come together. It's an excellent place for anyone who loves food, with many tasty things to try. This makes it a perfect spot for food lovers to visit.

1. The Heart of Greek Food: Tavernas and Small Dishes

In Athens, cozy restaurants called tavernas are where you'll find some of the best food. Here, people love to eat 'mezedes' - small plates of tasty snacks. You can try things like 'Tzatziki' (a yogurt and cucumber dip), 'Dolmades' (rice wrapped in grape leaves), and 'Saganaki' (fried cheese). These small dishes are perfect for sharing and are a big part of how Greeks enjoy meals together.

2. Street Food in Athens

The streets of Athens are full of delicious food to try. The most famous street food is 'Souvlaki' - grilled meat on a stick, often wrapped in a 'Pita' bread with tomatoes, onions, and 'Tzatziki' sauce. Also, try 'Koulouri,' a ring of bread covered in sesame seeds, which is a favorite quick breakfast. These foods give you a real taste of Athens.

3. Olives and Olive Oil: Greek Staples

In Athens, olives and olive oil are very important. Visit a local market to taste different kinds of olives and buy some top-quality olive oil. Olive oil is used in a lot of Greek cooking, and taking some home lets you cook Greek-style in your own kitchen.

4. Greek Sweets

Desserts are a big part of food in Athens. 'Baklava,' with its layers of pastry, nuts, and honey, is a must-try. Another treat is 'Loukoumades,' little fried dough balls with honey and cinnamon. These sweets, often enjoyed with strong Greek coffee, are the perfect end to a meal.

5. Markets in Athens: A Colorful Experience

The busy markets in Athens, like Varvakios Agora, are exciting places to visit. Walk around stalls selling fresh fruits, meats, cheeses, and spices, and enjoy the lively atmosphere. These markets are more than just places to shop; they're where you can meet locals and learn about Greek food.

6. Greek Wines

Your meals in Athens can be even better with a glass of Greek wine. Greece has been making wine for thousands of years, and you can try local types like 'Assyrtiko' and 'Agiorgitiko.' Whether you like red or white wine, Greek wines are great with many dishes.

Bottom Line: Athens is a city full of wonderful flavors and food traditions. Every dish tells a story of Greek history and culture. Join Tradition Tours to explore Greece and get ready for a journey that will make your taste buds happy!

Exploring the Culinary Delights of Rome

Ah, Rome! A city where history and modernity blend seamlessly, creating a mesmerizing tapestry that captivates every visitor. But beyond its iconic monuments and ancient ruins, Rome boasts a culinary landscape as rich and layered as its history. In this special Tradition Tours exploration, we dive into the heart of Rome's culinary scene, uncovering the flavors and traditions that make this city a paradise for food lovers.

1. The Quintessence of Italian Cuisine: Pasta and Pizza
No culinary tour of Rome is complete without indulging in its pasta and pizza. Pasta here is an art form, with classics like 'Carbonara' and 'Cacio e Pepe' taking center stage. These dishes, simple in ingredients but complex in flavor, reflect the Roman ethos of culinary excellence. Equally compelling is the Roman pizza, particularly 'Pizza al Taglio' - a unique, rectangular pizza sold by the slice, perfect for a quick and delicious snack while exploring the city.

2. The Market Experience: Campo de' Fiori
A visit to Campo de' Fiori, Rome's famous open-air market, is a must for food enthusiasts. Here, the vibrant stalls overflow with fresh produce, artisanal cheeses, and cured meats. It's a great place to sample local specialties like 'Supplì' (fried rice balls) and 'Porchetta' (savory, fatty, and moist boneless pork roast). The market's bustling atmosphere, filled with the chatter of locals and the aroma of fresh food, offers an authentic slice of Roman life.

3. Sweet Sensations: Roman Desserts
For those with a sweet tooth, Rome's dessert scene is heavenly. Traditional gelato shops, or 'gelaterias,' offer a dizzying array of flavors, from classic chocolate to more adventurous combinations. Take advantage of 'Tiramisu,' a delightful concoction of coffee-soaked ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese, or 'Crostata di Ricotta,' a sweet tart made with ricotta cheese and candied fruits.

4. A Toast to Tradition: Roman Wines
Complement your meals with a glass of local wine. The Lazio region, home to Rome, produces excellent wines that beautifully pair with the city's cuisine. Whether it's a robust red or a light white, the wines of Rome are as integral to the dining experience as the food itself.

5. Authentic Dining: Trattorias and Osterias
Experience the heart and soul of Roman cuisine in its trattorias and osterias. These family-run establishments offer a warm, welcoming atmosphere and serve traditional Roman dishes cooked with love and passion. It's the perfect setting to relax and enjoy a leisurely meal after a day of sightseeing.

6. Cooking Classes: Bring Rome into Your Kitchen
For an interactive culinary experience, participate in a cooking class. Learn how to make classic Roman dishes from local chefs and take the taste of Rome back home with you. It's not just a lesson in cooking; it's a way to immerse yourself in Roman culture and history.

7. Beyond the Beaten Path: Modern Roman Cuisine
Finally, explore Rome's contemporary culinary scene. Innovative chefs are reinterpreting traditional dishes, offering a modern twist on classic flavors. These upscale restaurants provide a different perspective on Roman cuisine and are perfect for a special evening out.

In conclusion, Rome's culinary landscape is as enchanting as its historic sites. Each meal is a journey through centuries of tradition, a celebration of flavors that have been passed down through generations. With Tradition Tours, your exploration of Rome is not just a trip; it's a foray into a world of culinary delights that will leave your taste buds dancing with joy. Buon appetito!
