Going On Faith
Published February 28, 2014
MOONACHIE, N.J. – Groups can plan now to see Italy’s version of Germany’s Oberammergau with Central Holidays in 2015. Because of an alliance with the town of Sordevolo, Central Holidays is the exclusive ticket distributor for the 2015 Passion Play of Sordevolo.
Performed every five years, the Passion Play of Sordevolo will run from June through September 2015 against the backdrop of Piedmont’s Sacred Mountains. The play presents the final days of Christ, much like the Oberammergau tradition that brings travelers to Germany every 10 years.
The residents of Sordevolo act and produce the play as they have since the early 1800s. You can see a preview of the performance by visiting www.passiontours.net.
“We are excited to offer this spectacular travel experience to our agents,” said Gianni Miradoli, CEO of Central Holidays Travel Group. “The Passion Play of Sordevolo gives us a chance to enhance our already substantial Italy expertise with something brand new in a growing tourism field.”
Groups can combine the religious play with other pilgrimage sites, such as Rome, Florence or Venice. Central Holidays will customize faith-based travel packages based on the needs of the group.
Currently tickets are on sale for group travel only. Individual travel and ticket sales will open to the public in January 2015.
