Spectacular 16-nights Italy/Greece Tour & Cruise!
This is a Best-of Both-World's package; a fantastic land tour visiting 3 of Italy's Top cities - Rome, Florence and Venice - PLUS a beautiful 10-nights Greek Islands' cruise with Celebrity Cruise Line!
This package is perfect. Every detail is taken care of, but you'll enjoy the flexibility to explore each city on your own.
Begin with 2 nights in Rome. You'll be met at the airport (your name on a sign!). You'll be transferred to a great boutique hotel in the heart of Rome's city centre. There, you'll enjoy a great city tour of the VATICAN, SISTINE CHAPEL, ST. PETER'S SQUARE and BASILICA, the COLOSSEUM, the ROMAN FORUM, and so much more. There's also plenty of time to enjoy exploring on your own. There's a treasure around every corner in Rome and you'll have time to see so much. After your 2-night stay, you'll be escorted to the train station for a fantastic, high-speed, first-class train trip to Florence (1hr 20min) - in the heart of Tuscany.
Florence is beautiful. Your guided tour includes a visit of the ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS with Michelangelo's original David. See Piazza del Duomo; Piazza della Signoria; Santa Croce Square; and Ponte Vecchio, the arched, stone merchant bridge spanning the Arno River. It's wonderful to have a local guide to point out all of the little details that make this one of Italy's cultural treasures. There's plenty of time to shop, snack and people watch during your 2-night stay here, before boarding the first-class, high-speed train to Venice (1hr 45min).
You'll begin your stay in Venice by touring ST. MARK'S SQUARE and BASILICA; the DOGES' PALACE and the BRIDGE OF SIGHS. See skilled GLASSBLOWERS create delicate objects in the age-old manner. Enjoy entrances to Marciana Library, and the Correr and Archaeological Museums. Your local host and guide will uncover so many treasures that you often miss on your own. There is nothing like Venice - the bakeries, the Lido, the Grand Canal at sunset - you'll love it.
After your 2-night stay in Venice, you'll transfer to Celebrity's Constellation for this once-in-a-lifetime cruise of the Greek Isles. Greece is teeming with traditions, history and spectacular natural beauty. The beaches are the best in the world. The water is clean and clear. The food is spectacular - olives, breads, cheeses, and wine. You'll visit 6 stops in Greece - including the sweeping views of Santorini and the ancient Acropolis of Athens. You'll discover smaller villages that offer family recipes handed down through generations. Visit a winery. Stroll the vineyard. Watch the people. You'll love Greece and you can do it all without expensive tours - ask us.
Without a cruise, 6 Greek stops would mean a lot of packing and unpacking, and time wasted in airports, ferry line ups, and hotels. With this cruise, you'll board the beautiful Constellation,
unpack once, and see it all - so easy.
The great thing about this package is that every detail is planned for you, but you enjoy the independence to explore on your own. Each hotel is 4-star, clean, and centrally located - just a stroll from everything. You can add extra nights or even upgrade to a 5-star hotel - ask us.
All transfers and tours are included on your land tour, but (we love this part) you'll enjoy the train trips on your own - and the train is scenic and wonderful. Local guides and a Globus host are devoted to seeing that your trip is great - with great tips and suggestions all the way!
BONUS: Book a window or balcony cabin and receive 2 onboard PERKS - Free Gratuities, Classic beverage package, free WiFi, or a $300 cabin credit - your choice of 2!
