Take the kids to Italy on TourCrafters’ spring break package


LIBERTYVILLE, Illinois – What’s more fun and more educational than a trip to Disney World? How about a trip to Italy, home to the Colosseum, St. Peter’s, and pizza? It’s also home to Rome, Florence, and Venice, and TourCrafters, the Italian tour operator known for good-deal packages, has put together an Italy by Train package that takes in these amazing cities and makes an affordable spring break for American families.

The 11-day/10-night Italy by Train package costs US$1,129 (US$985 if booked by March 1) and includes round-trip air from New York; an arrival transfer; accommodations at the hotels Brasile in Rome, Meridiana in Florence, and Malibran in Venice; daily buffet breakfast; tickets for the Eurostar train; a half-day tour in each city; a Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour in Rome; service charges; and VAT tax. The package is valid from March 1 to April 15, 2011.

The hotels are comfortable, centrally-located, 3-star hotels, but upgrades to first-class superior hotels are available, as are extra days. Also available are add-on air fares from other departure cities. These fares are less expensive if booked before March 1, more expensive after: US$55 or US$128 from Boston, US$95 or US$265 from Miami, US$65 or US$175 from Chicago, and US$155 or US$200 from Los Angeles.

All prices are per person, double occupancy, are subject to availability, and do not include city tax, airport taxes of approximately US$115, or fuel surcharges of approximately US$330, which are not included in the quoted price because they are subject to change.
