Globus Says Ciao To Italy


Globus and sister company Cosmos have released their 2017 product line for Italy, including new itineraries and attractive Early Booking Bonuses.

In all, Globus will be offering 14 escorted tours to Italy next year (plus eight featuring Italy in combination with other countries); while Cosmos offers clients the choice of nine itineraries (plus 13 with other countries).

With a diverse portfolio of Italy vacations ranging from seven to 15 days, Globus’ most popular tours are the 11-day The Best of Italy which includes a detailed look at life 2,000 years ago in Pompeii; the 13-day Italian Mosaic featuring laid-back luxury and beautiful landscapes in Lake Maggiore, Venice, Sorrento and Capri; and the eight-day Italy’s Great Cities where travellers not only experience the sights, sounds and tastes of Italy’s favourite cities, but also enjoy the scenery of the Tyrrhenian coast, the wooded Apennine mountain range and the vine- and olive grove-clad hills of Tuscany.

For 2017, Globus is featuring Italy tours priced at less than $300 per day, including the nine-day Italian Sampler and eight-day Italian Vista. (Per diem prices do not reflect Early Booking Bonuses.)

Cosmos is also offering travellers the chance to enjoy Italy for as little as $1,507 (airfare not included) on its eight-day Magic of the Italian Lakes vacation. Cosmos’ trips feature generous free time and guaranteed single-share program for solo travellers.

“It’s no secret that Italy is so many destinations in one,” says Stéphanie Bishop, managing director of the Globus family of brands in Canada. “There’s Italy for the art lover, the history buff, the foodie, the wine enthusiast and the shopper. We bring nearly 90 years of experience in hand-crafting holidays, to take all the hassle out of planning it on your own and replace it with authentic, guided experiences to make the most of every holiday moment.”

Travellers booking a Globus 2017 Italy vacation before Nov. 29 will enjoy the best prices of the year, including 10% off per person. Cosmos travellers will receive a $50 per person discount when they book and deposit by Oct. 25. And if clients have travelled with the Globus family of brands (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) before they’ll be eligible for an additional 5% off.
