Barbara Golden, Communications Manager for the St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches Visitors and Convention Bureau, reported to Historic City News that St. Augustine will be visited by one of Italy’s most popular television shows this weekend.

Italian reality show DONNAVVENTURA, which is broadcast on the Retequattro Network, reports that each televised episode has more than 3 million viewers.

The six women featured in the series are selected from more than 65,000 applicants for a 100-day challenge from the Caribbean up the eastern North American continent into Northern Canada, participating in soft adventure challenges along the way.

The participants act as travel reporters for several important Italian magazines, including Cosmopolitan (Italy), Ragazza Moderna, Tuttoturismo, Outside, Matrix, Star + TV, Qui Touring and Jack.

In addition to the airing of the program, the DONNAVVENTURA website and Blog keep followers of the adventure up-to-date.

While in St. Augustine, the cast will tour the city, participate in a night-time eco-tour on the water and visit the St. Augustine Lighthouse.
