Last-Minute Savings on TourCrafters' Escorted Italy Tours

Last-Minute Savings on TourCrafters' Escorted Italy Tours ( Travelers who book one of TourCrafters' Escorted Italy tours before June 30 can save as much as 25%.  Meant for those who want the security of a planned itinerary, guaranteed departures and all transportation as well as the services of a Tour Assistant, these tours are perfect for first-time travelers to Italy..

The 7-day/6-night land-only Treasures of Art tour, for example, is an excellent introduction to Italy's most popular cities and most famous works of art.  It has 11 guaranteed departures on Thursdays from June 19 to August 28 and costs $1,269 including 3-star hotel accommodations, daily buffet breakfast, some dinners, transfers to and from the airport, transportation by deluxe motorcoach, a Tour Assistant, local guides and entrance fees

Travelers who fly into Rome's Fiumicino Airport (TourCrafters will find the very best airfare deal) are met and taken to a comfortable hotel in Rome for overnight accommodation.  On Day 2 there's a half-day tour of Eternal Rome.  Then it's off to Umbria,  the “Green Heart of Italy,"  to visit Assisi's Basilica of St. Francis with its magnificent frescoes by Giotto and Cimabue.

Crossing into Tuscany, tour participants will see Siena and its great medieval square, the fan-shaped Piazza del Campo, finishing the day with dinner and an overnight in Florence.  Day 4 offers a guided sightseeing tour of Florence and its many art treasures and a free afternoon when tour participants can visit the renowned Uffizi Gallery or check out the shops.  

After a stop in Padua to see the Scrovegni Chapel with more Giotto frescoes, the tour continues to the magical city of Venice where there's a walking tour of the city (Doges' Palace, St. Mark's Basilica,  Rialto Bridge and Grand Canal) and then dinner and overnight.  After dinner tour participants can invest in an expensive coffee and enjoy the wonderful schmaltzy orchestras in St. Mark's Square, which Napoleon called “the most elegant drawing room in Europe."  The next morning there's a tour to a glass factory to see the famed Venetian glass made, and then the return to Rome by motorcoach or by Italian Rail.  After breakfast, on the last day in Rome, tour participants are taken to the airport for flights home.

All prices quoted are per person, are subject to availability and change due to currency fluctuations.  Reservations must be paid for within 72 hours of booking.  For additional information about the Treasures of Art and other good-deal escorted tours, visit .  For reservations, call 800-482-5995.
