La Dolce Vita: The Sweet Life of Mythic Italy with Phil Cousineau

Basilica St Francis of Assissi - Sacred Earth Journeys - Womens Trips Italy

Updated on April 20th, 2023

Sacred Earth Journeys has curated an educational and immersive womens trip of Italy. The trip is led by bestselling author, filmmaker, mythologist, and veteran tour leader Phil Cousineau.

For centuries, Italy has personified the pursuit of the simple pleasures:casual walks along medieval cobble streets, soulful conversation over in historic cafes, live music in centuries-old churches, unforgettable encounters with Italian art, and, of course, delectable food and world-class wine.

Whether this is your first visit to the country or you have enjoyed la dolce vita before, this womens trip of Italy is an opportunity to experience the region from a new perspective. Each morning begins with an in depth discussion – a practice that Phil has developed for his tours since the 80s called “The Long Conversation”. These discussions are inspried by his years of working with famed mythologist Joseph Campbell, and can help set the context and mood for each day’s encounters with the widespread beauty and languorous pace of Italian life.

Join Phil on an adventure through one of the world’s most artistic regions – visit the great masterpieces and artisans’ workshops, marvel at brilliant architecture, and indulge in culinary delights and cooking classes. This trip will take you through cities of historical importance, such as Rome, Assisi, Florence, Padua and Verona.
