“We are honored to be selected as a preferred supplier by Ensemble Travel Group,” said Fred Berardo, president and CEO of Central Holidays. “The international organization has a robust network of more than 850 member agencies in the U.S. and Canada, as well as a proven brand with a time-honored history of more than four decades strong.

As part of an alliance with the town of Sordevolo in Italy, Central Holidays has been named the key tour operator partner for upcoming events in 2015 of the acclaimed Passion Play in Italy that will be performed four times a week from June through September. Similar in tradition to the Oberammergau Passion Play of Germany, Sordevolo’s La Passione Di Cristo is a re-enactment of the Passion of the Christ that has taken place in this small town every five years since the beginning of the 18th Century. This Passion Play experience is further enhanced by its location in Italy, offering the opportunity for individual travelers or religious groups to combine their time in Sordevolo with visits to other cities - such as Rome, Florence, Venice.
