March Madness


As part of ALBATours’ latest “March Madness” promotion, in which all of its Italy tour vacations and Mediterranean cruise holidays are on sale, the 23-day “European Grand Voyage” stands out for its tremendous value.

Offering a combination of land tour and cruise vacation, this 23-day/21-night adventure visits a total of seven countries, starting off in Florence, Italy for two nights of pre-cruise fun before setting sail from Genoa on the MSC Orchestra for a 10-day Western Mediterranean cruise.

Heading west, clients will visit Malaga and Cadiz (Seville) before heading through the Strait of Gibraltar to Lisbon, north to Vigo, across the Bay of Biscay and through the English Channel, with a stop in Dover (London), and then up into the North Sea and around Denmark, before disembarking in Kiel (Hamburg). It is at this point the 10-day/nine-night coach tour begins, with the first couple of nights spent in Berlin, then on to Prague, Bratislava and Vienna, before wrapping up in Rome for the last three nights before catching the flight back to Toronto.

Clients can enjoy all of this for $3,699 plus $695 taxes and surcharge p.p. – a price that includes a free stateroom upgrade (in this case from inside to ocean view, cat. O1), roundtrip flights from Toronto to Rome on Alitalia, transfers (from Rome to Florence, Florence to the Genoa pier, Kiel pier to Berlin), and transportation, accommodation in four-star hotels, some meals, city tours and attractions and the services of an English-speaking guide during the coach tour.

The cruise departs on April 27 and the “March Madness” savings – which apply to ALBATours’ full range of product – are available until March 15 or while supplies last.
