Affordable Summer Vacation for Couples and/or Families
Libertyville, IL, June 3, 2013â€”Take your kids to Italy and the price starts at $806 per person in a quadruple room. Take your spouse or friend and the price starts at $954 in a double. Whichever way you go, Rome and Florence are the Italian highlights that everyone should see, and this summer is the time to see them.
TourCrafters has designed an 8-night/9-day land-only package that includes four nightsâ€™ accommodation in Rome at the modern 3-star Hotel Trevi and four nights in Florence at the charming 3-star Hotel Paris; daily buffet breakfast; a moonlight tour of the Colosseum; a visit to the Emperor Constantine Exhibit; a Rome-Florence train ticket; an electric bike tour of Florence and a Fiat 500 tour of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
The Hotel Trevi, which is very near the Trevi Fountain, has a roof garden where guests can enjoy breakfast. The boutique Hotel Paris, which is housed in two Renaissance palaces, boasts elegant dÃ©cor and a terrace. Both hotels are located in the cityâ€™s historic center and both offer air conditioning, mini-bars and free WiFi. Prices are higher in September and October and hotel upgrades are possible for an additional price.
In Rome you can take in the historic sights: the Roman Forum, St. Peterâ€™s Basilica and the Vatican museums, the Capitoline Hill, the Pantheon andâ€”after darkâ€”the Colosseum. But you can also admire the produce in the Campo deâ€™ Fiori market and the designer shops on Via Condotti, and enjoy the worldâ€™s best pasta in restaurants that spill out into streets and piazzas. In Florence, of course, thereâ€™s great Renaissance art and architecture around every corner, and nearby a photogenic landscape full of olive groves, vineyards and medieval stone villages. In both cities TourCrafters offers a selection of optional tours: from Rome to Naples, Pompeii and Capri; from Florence to Siena, San Gimignano and Chianti.
All prices quoted are per person, in either a double or quad, and are subject to availability. For additional information about the Rome and Florence package, which has daily departures and is valid from July 1 to October 31.
