Short Description

Like the beautiful mosaics gracing the floors and walls of ancient Roman villas, we’ve brought together the most colorful parts of Italy to create an impact with this visually stunning vacation. Hand selecting experiences from multiple regions of “the boot,” we’ve assembled an imaginative getaway with the brightest pieces of Rome, Florence, and Venice, plus the sultry Italian Riviera, the breezy Lake District, and the sunny coast of Campania. The pastel-tinted Cinque Terre fishing villages, the sparkling blue waters of Capri, and the lemon-tree-lined streets of Sorrento offer a vivid picture of Italy, while the pilgrimage destination of Assisi, the Roman ash preserved city of Pompeii, and the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa provide just the right accents. Traveling north, south, coastal, and inland, this multi-hued tour of Italy is a picture-perfect montage of memories.

I enjoyed this trip very much. It was beyond my expectations. I was given access to amazing adventures and experiences. I gained a wealth of knowledge. My tour guide and driver kept things moving and shared their experiences and made me really feel the Alaskan culture and ways of life. I am leaving feeling like I couldn’t have squeezed another thing into the time I had here.

Our tour with Globus Imperial Splendors was wonderful. Our travel director Victor Holub created an extraordinary experience. We saw so many beautiful sights thanks to his knowledge of the area and other local guides which made our trip worthwhile. We learned so much history and saw unbelievable sights, plus the restaurants and the extra excursions were unforgettable.
Our driver Simon was skilled with his driving and all the time ready to help.
Thank you Globus for hiring such top notch quality tour directors and drivers.

The Globus Trans Canadian Tour was everything I’d hoped it would be! From Toronto to Vancouver, this 14-day excursion offers travelers modes of transportation on a train, coach, and ferries and even boats, rafts, planes and helicopters if one so chooses. Hotel accommodations were delightful and the included meals offered a culinary variety for all pallets. Our tour director, Jennifer P, and coach driver Scott made a great team! Both were quite knowledgeable, incredibly organized, accommodating, and also so very personable. Stops along the way offered a wonderful cross section of topography and breathtaking scenery, especially the Canadian Rockies. Excursion opportunities were varied for all levels of ability. Our little troop of 15 truly wanted for nothing.
Most certainly, I give my first tour with Globus an A+ and look forward to traveling with this company again!

This makes about our 7th Globus trip. This was a wonderful trip, great itinerary. Jennifer Roberts was one of the best tour guides of all our trips with Globus. She was very kind, thoughtful and took care of all our needs. Scott was a great bus driver and did extra for us by driving into town to drop us off for dinner and waiting. I will continue to recommend Globus to friends and we will continue to use Globus on our next trips.

Peter, our tour guide was exceptional. He was knowledgeable and entertaining. I liked that he rotated us around the bus in assigned seats so that no one had to rush to get to the bus in the morning to get his/her "perfect" seat. The tour was amazing. I learned so much and saw such a beautiful part of Canada that I had never been to. Our bus driver Randee was very skilled and I felt safe on all the hairpin turns. I would recommend this tour 100%

Indigo Venice Sant'Elena

The lush green Sant'Elena neighborhood in Venice has the feel of a sleepy Italian village, yet it's within easy reach of the city's most famed attractions. Housed in an ancient building (formerly a convent) which has maintained its grand-scale architecture with room décor inspired by warm, Byzantine colors or cooler tones evocative of the sea, the hotel reflects the unique mix of culture, character, and setting of the neighborhood. All 75 guestrooms are equipped with every comfort and marked by the attention to detail of a boutique hotel. The spa-style bathrooms, equipped with rainfall-like showerheads and quality bathroom amenities account for a refreshing invigorating stay. The hotel is both secluded enough to allow for quiet time and equally very central to enjoy the Venetian lifestyle of little restaurants, cafes, and piazzas. While the distance between Sant'Elena and the bustling Piazza San Marco is easily bridged via vaporetto (water taxi), the two neighborhoods can feel like entirely different cities. The location is also within easy reach of the 11-km stretch of golden beaches on the island of Lido.
