Join us in commemorating the 65th anniversary of Canada’s
victory at Ortona
Considered one of the bloodiest battles of WWII, the Battle of Ortona is also one of Canada’s greatest WWII achievements. In December 1943, Canadian forces victoriously seized the picturesque Italian seaside town of Ortona from German troops in one of the most epic battles of the Italian Campaign.
EF introduces three awe-inspiring new tours for 2008 and 2009 to commemorate the 65th anniversary of Canada’s victory at Ortona. Pay special tribute to the soldiers who fought so bravely for our freedom at the Official Ortona 65th Anniversary Remembrance Ceremony, then continue your in-depth history lesson as you continue your journey through beautiful Italy.
