The brochure features favorites like Italy by Train, which covers Rome, Florence, and Venice for US$809 and four-night, land-only packages at a variety of hotels: from the 3-star Brasile for US$279 to the 5-star Parco dei Principi for US$905 in Rome, from the 3-star Meridiana for US$199 to the 4-star Bernini Palace for US$445 in Florence, and in Venice, from the 3-star Malibran for US$199 to the 5-star Luna Baglioni for US$885. Also on offer are charming hotels in Tuscany, Apulia, the Amalfi Coast, and Sicily.

Then there are four-night packages in Paris, which range from the Quartier Bastille Le Faubourg (US$325) to the Saint James & Albany (US$709), as well as seven-night Paris and Nice packages and seven-night Italian and French Riviera packages.

In Spain, there are city breaks in Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Toledo, Valencia, and Santiago de Compostela, plus resort packages in Marbella, Malaga, and Fuengirola on the Costa del Sol, and an air and land package to Bilbao for only US$689.

The Imperial Capitals — Vienna, Prague, and Budapest — are represented by amazingly inexpensive three-night packages that start as low as US$105, and a six-night train trip to the three cities that costs US$689.

In Turkey there’s a three-night Istanbul package that starts at only US$345 and includes a 4-star hotel, full-day guided city tour, a half-day Spice Market tour, and a cruise along the Bosporus, as well as escorted tours to Cappadocia and other Turkish highlights.

TourCrafters also offers 6-night hosted tours to Rome and Paris and new Mix & Match packages to two European capitals that are totally flexible: the client chooses the cities, number of nights, and hotels.
