Three Reasons to Take a Land/Sea Trip to Italy
Embarking on a combination land/sea vacation can help you obtain the best of both worlds on the same trip.
You will still get to see extraordinary sites on land and then take to the seas and enjoy an exciting cruise vacation. Here are three reasons to try a 24-night cruise package vacation to Italy next fall:
1. Save Money:
This particular land/sea trip in Italy starts at just $1,949 per person for 24 nights – less than $100 per day! It includes a nine day scenic land tour visiting Italy’s finest cities, and a 15 day transatlantic cruise on the impressive Celebrity Equinox. This combination trip includes all of your lodging and most meals and activities making it a great vacation value. The best part is you return to the United States by ship so you only need to purchase a one-way flight to Rome to start your trip.
2. See the Best of Italy:
During your nine day land tour, you’ll visit and explore Rome, Venice and Pisa and experience St. Peters Square, the Colosseum, the Chianti vineyards in Tuscany, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the bustling streets and canals of Venice and the world famous Basilica. Your tour includes overnight stays at charming local hotels, headsets throughout the tour, local guides for city sightseeing in Rome and Florence, a professional tour director while touring and buffet breakfasts each day and two dinners featuring local cuisine. This comprehensive tour allows you plenty of time to see the historic sights and dive in the local cultures of each city.
3. Cross the Atlantic on the Celebrity Equinox:
Your trip is less than half way over and you still get to experience all the amenities of the Celebrity Equinox – one of Celebrity’s newer Solstice class ships. Choose from ten exceptional dining venues, check out the innovative Lawn Club, visit the luxurious Aquaspa, increase your wine knowledge at Cellar Masters or relax at one of the ship’s pools or sundecks. While there is enough to do on the Equinox to keep you busy for 15 days, you’ll still get to visit several more great European cities on your cruise such as Florence, Italy; Provence, Italy; Barcelona, Spain; Cartagena, Spain; and Madeira, Portugal.
“An Italy cruise package vacation really does allow you to see the country up close and personal through the detailed land tour, and then let you visit several more hot destinations along the Med before making the exciting journey across the Atlantic,” explained Chris Parker, vice president of cruise package agency All Aboard Travel.
