FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2019: After breakfast, we will enjoy a tour of the beautiful ST. MARY'S CATHEDRAL BASILICA OF THE ASSUMPTION. The basilica was built at the turn of the 19th century and its most striking feature is all the stained glass inside. In total, there are 82 stained glass windows. Along with three pipe organs, you will marvel at the Stations of the Cross which are made of tiny mosaic tiles by artisans from the old country. And, the Gothic design offers gargoyles and arches. There will be a brief stop at the fascinating, ROEBLING PAINTINGS ON FLOOD WALL in Covington. The Roebling Murals at the Covington Waterfront are a series of 18 panels depicting the history of Covington from 800 BC to the present day, painted on the flood wall along the Ohio River and visible from the Roebling Bridge. The highlight of our trip is our visit to THE ARK ENCOUNTER. The Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind, historically themed attraction presenting a number of historical events centered on Noah's Ark as recorded in the Bible. From the moment the Ark comes into view, you will marvel at its massive size. It is seven stories tall and a football field and a half long and is the largest timber frame structure in the world. You'll experience close encounters with stunning animals and view stimulating exhibits. Our group will also enjoy a buffet lunch at EMZARA'S KITCHEN. On our way home, there will be a stop at a fast-food restaurant for dinner, which is on your own. We will arrive back to LCCC at approximately 11:00 PM.
