TourCrafters releases 2011 Preview: Italy and the Best of Europe


LIBERTYVILLE, IL – TourCrafters has released its online brochure, 2011 Preview: Italy and the Best of Europe, with unique videos of Rome, Florence, and Spain. The brochure gives information on packages, escorted tours, special deals, and hotels, with prices that are valid from November 1, 2010.

The Rome pages, which carry a special “How to be a Gladiator” offer, in addition to packages and hotels, also feature a Zeffirelli Rome video that shows sightseeing highlights from the Trevi Fountain and Sistine Chapel to the Piazza Navona and Colosseum — where Andrea Bocelli sings a favorite aria from Tosca.

The Florence pages also have a video, with a panoramic view of the city, shots of its art works, an explanation of its history and a tour of its attractions. There’s a Venice page, as well as one devoted to escorted tours that vary from a two-day Capri trip to a seven-day Grand Tour of Northern Italy, with a new five-day Sunshine Tour of Calabria and Sicily. Also displayed are hotels and villas in Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast, Puglia and Sicily, as well as wine and food tours.

The Spain section lists art, history, and food and wine tours, and its video shows golf and water sports in addition to scenes of its most popular cities. Special pages feature packages in Andalusia, Costa del Sol, and Bilbao.

There are also pages devoted to France (Riviera and Provence), Imperial Capitals (Vienna/Prague/Budapest), Greece (Athens and sailing packages), Turkey (Istanbul and a new Jewish Relics of Asia Minor tour), and European Carousel packages that combine European capitals.
