2022 Italian Treasures Group Tour

Date: September 28 - October 9, 2022

Escorted by:

Globus

“Wherefore art thou, Romeo?” Who can resist uttering these words in medieval Verona, the romantic setting for Shakespeare’s tragic love story? But thoughts will soon shift to Roman ruins, medieval towns, floating cities and gastronomic delights. All of these treasures and more are right here on this sparkling tour of Italy. Filled with the country’s famous jewels and hidden gems, this dazzling tour leads you from Rome to Venice and back again, with time in the sultry Italian Riviera, vineyard-dotted Tuscany, and neighboring picturesque Umbria, Tuscany’s “gentler sister.” Savor a boat ride along the dramatic Cinque Terre coastline with its pastel-colored fishing villages, stroll through the serene streets of Assisi, and sip Chianti in a Tuscan cantina. Michelangelo’s David, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the perfectly preserved medieval town of San Gimignano are more reasons this tour of Italy truly shines.

“I was born in Sarajevo, in a multicultural environment, but grew up and live in Italy. Writers have said: "One life is not enough to discover all the treasures that Italy hides," I'm still working on it, and I take the passengers with me on this extraordinary exploration. We do this through the people we meet, through the language and dialects we listen to, through the traditional food we eat, through the cities, medieval little towns and amazing landscapes that surround our journeys... when we go back home we are not the same, there is so much new to share and talk about!”

Indigo Venice Sant'Elena

FIRST-CLASS

Free Wifi

The lush green Sant'Elena neighborhood in Venice has the feel of a sleepy Italian village, yet it's within easy reach of the city's most famed attractions. Housed in an ancient building (formerly a convent) which has maintained its grand-scale architecture with room décor inspired by warm, Byzantine colors or cooler tones evocative of the sea, the hotel reflects the unique mix of culture, character, and setting of the neighborhood. All 75 guestrooms are equipped with every comfort and marked by the attention to detail of a boutique hotel. The spa-style bathrooms, equipped with rainfall-like showerheads and quality bathroom amenities account for a refreshing invigorating stay. The hotel is both secluded enough to allow for quiet time and equally very central to enjoy the Venetian lifestyle of little restaurants, cafes, and piazzas. While the distance between Sant'Elena and the bustling Piazza San Marco is easily bridged via vaporetto (water taxi), the two neighborhoods can feel like entirely different cities. The location is also within easy reach of the 11-km stretch of golden beaches on the island of Lido.
