Philítaly in Argentina

October 17-25, 2024

Starts in Buenos Aires and also visit Tigre, San Isidro, Mendoza and Iguaza Falls.

We are now taking our family heritage of Italy to Argentina.  We have experience with emigration to Italy from Argentina, mostly occurring in the 1920s.  We have planned a trip of a lifetime to not only meet our family and friends there but also to discover the wonders of the extraordinary country of Argentina.  Although we will spend most of our time in the city of Buenos Aires, in the Recoleta area, we will also explore the regions of Mendoza and its beautiful wine country and Iguazu Falls a fascinating natural wonder that surpasses the falls of Niagara and stands at the juncture of three countries: Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.  You will experience the lifestyle of locals by visiting our family and friends’ homes.  This trip includes a Tango show with dinner and a private tour of Teatro Colón, as well as walking tours through unique neighborhoods of Buenos Aires a city of 17 million inhabitants.

You will be guided by Argentine insiders, members of our Farinacci and Grandinetti family in the country since the1920s, as well as Phil of Philítaly.  Phil has conducted two recon trips so far, working with our relatives and friends to create an itinerary for a trip of a lifetime.  You will experience the real Argentine “day in the life”, and go to places off the beaten path.  Get your Goucho mojo going!

Playing for Pizza: A Novel by John Grisham Published in 2012

American National Football League third string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, Rick Dockery becomes a national laughing-stock after what is considered the worst performance in NFL history. No other NFL team wants him after he is cut by the Browns.

 

Against all odds he lands a job as the starting quarterback for the Parma, Italy Mighty Panthers. The Parma Panthers are happy to have Rick, wanting an NFL player and not being selective about which former American NFL player they choose.

For Rick, not knowing anything about Parma and not speaking a word of Italian, a series of adventures ensue bringing with it a few surprises.
