Italian Escape

Experience the passion of Italy on an escape…without the crowds and without the high-season prices. You’ve heard about Italy—its mouth-watering cuisine, excellent wine, fabulous art, splendid beauty, ancient ruins, extraordinary statues, and remarkable architecture—and now it’s your turn to experience it all! On this Italy tour, get a taste of what the country has to offer and explore its most famous cities: Rome, Florence, and Venice. Have your camera ready as you discover the historical sights of Rome – St. Peter’s Basilica; the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, world-famous for Michelangelo’s ceiling paintings, as well as the Colosseum, the amphitheater used for deadly gladiatorial contests. Take a step back in time as you get up close to ancient buildings and ruins and imagine what life was like thousands of years ago.

Enjoy a walk through the Old Town of Assisi, and visit St. Francis Basilica, before arriving in Florence, known as one of the most beautiful cities in the world and often referred to as the art capital of Italy. Here, enjoy a guided walking tour that includes a visit to see Michelangelo’s famous David. Spend time shopping for local Florentine goods, and then marvel at the Leaning Tower of Pisa. In romantic Venice, bask in the sun on a private boat ride and visit the must-see sights, such as St. Mark’s Square and Basilica, the Doges’ Palace, and the Bridge of Sighs. You’ll also have time to explore the maze of streets and discover hidden treasures in their back alleys. Or relax at an outdoor café in St. Mark’s Square and enjoy this prime people-watching spot.

Throughout this Italy tour, Globus has arranged VIP access, so rather than waiting in long lines, you’ll get right to the front at all the famous sights. This gives you more time to experience the sights and more time to taste Italy’s sumptuous cuisine, shop for Italian goods, explore the stunning churches and museums, and participate in optional excursions. Just imagine the memories you’ll create on this fabulous Italian vacation at a price that’s as enticing as the wine and tiramisù!
