Undiscovered Italy -Escorted Touring

Undiscovered Italy -Escorted Touring


Perhaps you’ve already stood inside the storied walls of the Colosseum or marveled at the chiseled lines of the statue of David. Maybe you’ve cruised through the most romantic of ancient canals. Even if you’ve experienced the highlights of Rome, Florence and Venice, there’s an entire country of diverse regions, people, traditions and cuisine you haven’t seen, experienced or tasted in Italy. And there is no better way to get to these picturesque towns, with the insight and expertise of local guides and ease of transportation, than on a tour.

The beauty of the less-traveled areas of Italy is what you’ll find more of—more intact ancient architecture, more wide-open views, and more local experiences. A tour gets you closer to these dolce discoveries—with more included features and unique surprises—plus plenty of free time to explore the cobblestone streets like a local.

Award-winning Acendas Travel advisor Kathy Sudeikis and Business Development Manager for the Globus Family of Brands Robin Pieper share the beauty of the less-traveled regions.
