LIBERTYVILLE, Illinois — The best deal around is TourCrafters’ 7-day/6-night winter package to Rome and Florence. Book by November 10 and save as much as US$300 per person on this good-deal package, which starts at only US$655 and includes round-trip air from New York, three nights’ accommodation in Rome at the 3-star Hotel Brasile, three nights’ accommodation in Florence at the 3-star Hotel Meridiana, daily buffet breakfasts, an arrival transfer in Rome, a Hop-On-Hop-Off city tour in Rome, a half-day city tour in Florence, a ticket for the “speed train” Eurostar and service charges, plus an aperitivo at Terraza Caffarelli in Rome and a gelato at Vivoli in Florence. There are daily departures from November 15 to March 15.
This is a great opportunity for an affordable getaway to Italy’s two most popular cities, to see great works of art and ancient ruins, to shop for clothes and leather goods and to eat authentic pasta and gelato in sun-dappled ancient squares. Hotel upgrades are possible — for an additional price, of course — to the 4-star Hotel Oxford and Hotel Cavour (US$729) or even the Hotel d’Inghilterra and Hotel Plaza Lucchesi (US$1,060).
All prices quoted are per person, double occupancy, are subject to availability, and do not include airport taxes (approximately US$105), fuel surcharge (approximately US$420), or minimal city taxes which must be paid directly to the hotels.
Since this is an Alitalia deal, add-on air fares are available only from Boston (US$80) and Miami (US$180). Please note that reservations must be paid for within 72 hours of booking.
