2017 ITALY TOUR | Monday, October 9 – Thursday, October 19, 2017


Over the course of the past three years Inspired Travel has enjoyed renewed focus and dedication to the vision set forth by Pastor Chuck Smith in his desire to travel believers to the Holy Land and on the Footsteps of the Apostle Paul.

As thousands have made their journey to biblically significant locations across the world we have seen first hand the heartwarming results of lives changed and the Gospel message magnified. We count it a tremendous honor to steward over this legacy and to seek its place for the generations ahead.

For this reason, we would like to invite you to join Pastors Don McClure, Joe Focht, Lloyd Pulley and their wives for a truly special and unique time of retreat and renewal. Our hope and prayer is that it will stir and refresh your spirit and strengthen the bonds of fellowship among fellow leaders. It will be a time of prayer and devotion among our family of pastors.

It is our way of saying thank you for the prayerful support you have given to Pastor Chuck’s vision over the years. We hope you will consider joining us.


Inspired Travel would like to invite you to join us as we take you through a life changing tour of the last days of the Apostle Paul and the Birth of the Renaissance.

Travel with us as we encounter the rich historical locations of Italy, bringing to light the life and the times of this amazing figure in history. You will visit the ancient Colosseum, walk the catacombs of Rome, and experience the Mamertime prision, where it is believed the Apostle Paul was held before his execution. Enjoy rich artistry and culture as you visit locations like the Academy of Fine Arts and Siena as you journey through Tuscany. Experience the beauty of Venice with its characteristic bridges spanning canals navigated by gondolas, its monuments, piazzas, narrow lanes and silent waters. Enrich yourself in masterful works of Renaissance art while exploring Florence. You will also make a visit to the city of Pompeii, a city whose fate was locked dramatically in time.

Enjoy the wonderful fellowship of brothers and co-laborers on this invite-only tour sure to leave you with lasting memories.
