As a first time visitor to Italy, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the choices when it comes to travel. That said, coming home frequently to the beautiful country of Italy is a second homecoming you may never want to end. And if you have the time, why not plan it for a year or two at a time? Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or traveling for the first time, there’s a version of Italy that’s perfect for you.
If you are planning on returning to Italy for an extended period of time, you have a lot to consider before you leave. The cost of living, the weather, and the language barriers are just a few things you might want to consider before packing your bags. To make it easier for travelers like you, Globus has teamed up with the Agenzia Nazionale di Promozione Turistica to offer a list of travel tips tailored specifically for long-term trips to Italy, so you can enjoy a stress-free and enjoyable Italy-experience.
This morning I got a text message from my friend Peter, who has been living in Italy for the past three years, that he was returning to the US for a few months. While we both expressed our joy at his return, we also reflected on the fact that Peter’s return could become his longest trip home in a decade. This is because Peter’s family has moved around so much, he has lost touch with his friends, and he has never really taken the time to learn about Italy. His come-back trip to Italy is a great opportunity to reconnect with his loved ones as well as to learn more about his new home.
WHY? The Globus family of brands offers more options than ever for putting together the perfect Italian holiday. You can watercolor on ancient sites, go truffle hunting in an Italian forest, or make new friends on a small-group discovery tour. – Lacey Pfaltz, editorial assistant,
For the first time in a long time, travellers can return to their favourite European destination without being quarantined! It’s time to explore Italy’s ancient cities, discover its seaside villages and breathe in the beauty of its vineyards – for a new (or first) taste of la dolce vita. And as Italy prepares this week to welcome American travelers to revisit the lemony streets of Sorrento, the olive oil-rich region of Puglia, the sparkling seas of Sicily and the flowing wines of Tuscany, the Globus family of brands is ready to help fully inoculated travelers plan their return with NEW Choice Touring, unique Undiscovered Tours and NEW Small-Group Discoveries tours for 2024.
NEW Choice of tourist routes : With the launch of Choice Touring by Globus, travelers in 2024 and beyond can satisfy their curiosity about Italy in a whole new way. With each Choice Touring vacation, they can choose from a menu of memories while enjoying everything they love in a perfectly planned tour. With a free choice of YourChoice tours, the NEW 8-day Veni, Vidi, Vici tour from Globus : The Umbrian & Tuscany By Design itinerary, for example, invites travelers to go truffle hunting or grow their own…. to immerse themselves in the beauty of waterfalls or paint watercolours… to spend their days wandering the spectacular cities and breathtaking landscapes of Italy.
Undiscovered holidays : Italy is full of treasures from heel to toe, including countless discoveries off the beaten path. Globus and Cosmos offer travelers and wanderers the perfect vacation in and around Italy with unique Undiscovered series such as Hidden Treasures of Southern Italy, Sicily, Highlights of Northern Italy and Cinque Terre by Globus of Puglia : The heel of Italy and the magic of the Italian lakes of the cosmos.
Discoveries in small groups : Travelers who choose Globus or Cosmos prefer to explore the world in a small group of like-minded people: People who stick together from start to finish. This year they can also choose Italian sightseeing tours such as Italian Vista, Italian Tapestries and Italian Treasures.
And for those who want to leave the group behind, Monograms offers behind-the-scenes tours of Rome, Venice and/or Florence with take-home vacation packages that include a local host, freedom to explore and unparalleled stories from local guides.
It’s finally time to make plans to stand in the shadow of history, navigate through ancient architecture and discover secluded cafes – and some of Italy’s tastiest food – along the way, says Steve Bourne, marketing director for the Globus family of brands. Italy is waiting to reunite with the travelers. Now we don’t have to wait to make plans and rekindle our love for travel – and for Italy.
