WE’RE GOING TO ITALY!!!
John and I are going on an amazing trip to Italy with Uniworld Boutique River Cruises Oct 13 – 25, 2013 and would love for you to go with us! The 1st part of our “Splendors of Italy” vacation will be a 7-night cruise in a riverview stateroom on the impressive River Countess. The 2nd part will be 2 nights in Florence and 3 nights in Paris, all at superior 1st class hotels. Out of all the river cruises that are on the market today, we chose this one because it includes an Epicurean Adventurer Program:
- Pasta-making workshop in Bologna
- Wine tasting and lunch at the famous Tuscany vineyard Castello Verrazzano
- Italian dessert-making demonstration and tasting
- Olive oil and wine tasting
- Special wine and food pairing dinner
We will visit the port cities of Venice, Padua, Ravenna, Verona and Bologna.This portion of our trip is also offered as a cruise only package, “Venice and the Po River” for as little as $3,999 double occupancy for 7 nights and 8 days October 13 – 20, 2013, airfare not included. In our opinion, the food alone would be worth the trip, but this package offers so much more!
Next, we will leave the river behind and cross the country to the splendors of Florence and Rome, staying in superior first-class hotels in both cities. We will visit the many of the art and architecture treasures of Florence, including the Accademia to see Michalagelo’s David. Uniworld offers both “Go Active” and “Gentle Walking” options for all the excursions. This truly is a vacation for all ages. Those of you who love art and fine food and wine and history buffs who wish to explore the heritage of Rome and the Renaissance will really enjoy this vacation package.
The entire “Splendors of Italy” vacation package, including a Category 2 stateroom is $6,749 per person, not including airfare.
The ship is limited to 132 passengers and is selling out very quickly, so give me a call at 336-354-2914 to reserve your stateroom!
Keep those travelin' shoes ready!
