TORONTO — Clients can discover Italy 62 ways with Globus family of brands, which offers a staggering number of itineraries through its various brands.
Globus alone has 15 escorted itineraries to Italy ranging from seven to 15 days. These include new ‘Hidden Treasures of Southern Italy’ and ‘The Sicilian’.
Value brand Cosmos, which offers more affordable options for clients on a budget, offers 11 tours, including the new ‘Apulia, the Heel of Italy’ and ‘Rome, Florence & Venice’. Also, its new ‘Gourmet Tuscany’, based on eight days in a hotel in Montecatini with food-filled day trips, is proving so popular that it’s nearly sold out.
Clients who prefer to travel independently can book one of Monogram’s trips, which include accommodation, ground transportation by first class rail, meet and greet and send-off service at airports and rail stations, a half-day of sightseeing in each city, and the services of a Local Host. This year, Monograms has 10 Italian itineraries ranging from seven to 16 days, its most complex tours visiting Sorrento, Rome, Florence, Venice and Lake Maggiore.
Also in 2018, Monograms has extended its City Getaway programs to Italy, available in Rome, Florence, Venice, Sorrento, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore. These bite-sized tours are an ideal introduction to a city and include accommodation, a half-day sightseeing tour, and services of a Local Host. City Getaways are usually offered for four days, but for 2018 the company has introduced flexible two- to five-night programs to Rome, Venice and Florence.
“This year we’ve really expanded our offerings beyond the ever-popular Rome-Venice-Florence triangle,” says Stéphanie Bishop of the Globus family of brands’ Canadian office. “We call it ‘Italy off the beaten piazza’, and have had great fun planning new itineraries that take travellers to every corner of this charming and diverse country.”
