About this event

Still Traveling

Would you like to still travel? Now you can without leaving your home – just stay still!

Let us whisk you away for an "armchair adventure" on an interesting, educational, fun & live, guided group tour in a destination beyond your front door ...even beyond the grocery store!

Forget the long, masked airplane ride, we take you across the time zones by Zoom where a local professional guide from a distant destination will take us to explore sites or topics. Live Q&A, photos, graphics & video clips (when available) will transport us to the destination!

Your ticket purchase helps support our special guests – professional guides – who are mostly or completely out of work.

Made possible, in part, by a generous grant from the Senior Excursion fund of the Jewish Federation of San Francisco, The Peninsula, Marin & Sonoma Counties.

Grab a cappuccino and let Trip Leader James Sokol zoom you away on four virtual “trips” to the capital of the province of Campania and third largest city in Italy.

Napoli (re: Naples) has been overlooked by many visitors for years. Some thought it was dangerous, others heard it was uninteresting. Today, it is neither! Naples is a vibrant city, steeped in history and traditions.

Meet our fantastic, professional, local guide and go on four "trips" to uncover and discover the treasures of this neglected southern Italian gem!

Our "Trips" Include:

Overview & Landscapes (June 7): Meet our delightful guide and join her to learn about the origins of the city, which are wrapped up in legends. Get an overview of the various districts in the area and admire its most famous landscapes.

The Beating Heart of Naples (June 14): Dive into the heart of the city and "stroll" in this ancient city, where its tidy Greco-Roman street plan is still perfectly in place. Visit highlights of the city, including its imposing cathedral, home of the famous miracle of San Gennaro. Hear about the city's Jewish history.

Invitation to Court (June 21): The stars of today's trip are the elegant castles & royal palaces in which kings and queens lived until 1861, when Italy was unified.

Street Food Specialties (June 28): Forget Stanley Tucci's visit! Hit the streets with our local guide - a native of Napoli - who not only discusses local culinary specialties, but also shows where to find the best pizza, mozzarella, sfogliatella (a gorgeous local pastry!) and gelato. She'll even share some of her special recipes!

The Fine Print:

Fortunately, we've had very few issues, but just to be clear...

Your Zoom “Event Link”: The Zoom event link will be emailed to all registered guests 2-days prior to the first "tour." To help it land in your "inbox," please add the following emails to your contacts:

  • James Sokol -- jsokol@marinjcc.org
  • JCC Alliance -- alliance@marinjcc.org

Registrants are requested to make sure the email w/link has arrived by the evening of June 5th. If the email does not arrive, please see "Troubleshooting" below.

The email w/link will be re-sent to all registrants about 2-hours prior to the first tour. NB: However, if it landed somewhere other than in your inbox the first time, it will probably do the same later.

Have a Comcast email? Please refer to this guide: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/spam-filters-and-email-blocking-new-experience.

Troubleshooting: We will do our best to remedy any issues. Registrants who have NOT received the email w/link are asked to check their email "junk" and "spam" folders. If found, please move the email to your inbox. If the email/link is still not there, please contact James (see below) immediately.

Late Troubleshooting: We will try our best - but cannot guarantee - help with Zoom links to guests contacting James less than 2-hours prior to the event.

Live Only: In agreement with our guides, artists, instructors, special guests, etc., events are not recorded. Make-up sessions are unavailable. Credit/refund is not given for missed events.

Liability: While we will do our best to remedy any issues, The Osher Marin JCC & its Program Partners cannot be held responsible for 1) issues related to Eventbrite or Zoom, 2) ticket buyers not following the instructions above, nor 3) packing, shipping, or deliver services of food/beverages not received in time for tasting events.

Don’t ya just hate “the fine print?!!”
