PAESANO JOURNEYS: The ancient Romans referred to a colloquial “hayseed” as a paganus in Latin, which eventually would become paesano or pagano in Italian and “peasant” or “pagan” in English. Our three Paesano Journeys will enamor you by plumbing the depths of cultural wealth that is central Italy. You will embrace your own inner-paesano as you eat, drink, and explore your way through the Umbrian countryside, the Tuscan wine-country, and the Amalfi Coast. Renaissance polymaths and their patrons, ancient Roman emperors, and medieval saints and sinners await you along these Journeys. Each Paesano Journey is 2 weeks in duration. Each Journey’s itinerary anticipates walking an average of about 5 miles (8 Km) per day.
