COME BACK TO ITALY AND FALL IN LOVE AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME
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.
A tour gets you easily to the tucked away villages and awe-inspiring landscapes that simply take your breath away. You can skip the lines and go straight to experiencing the magnificent views, whether of natural vistas, art masterpieces or even little moments of awe found in simple village life.
By eliminating lines—and including the must-see sights— you’ll actually have more free time to relax and explore on your own.
From north to south and heel to toe, we invite you to go off the beaten piazza. Come back to the country you loved for the first time and discover new sights, sparkling seas, rolling hills and the magic of an “undiscovered Italy”.View this beautiful e-catalog with many more tempting Undiscovered Italy tours and then contact an Acendas Travel Advisor to plan your trip!
