Tours by Twos
|Back-to-back tours in Italy give you more evenings to stroll with the local passeggiata.|
Design your own adventure...back to back
As flights to Europe get pricier, once you're there it makes sense to stay as long as you can, packing maximum travel thrills into each round-trip ticket. Many of our tours are 1 to 2 weeks long...but don't let that limit you!
We usually schedule our tours to begin or end on weekends, which makes it surprisingly easy to enjoy different tours back-to-back. Lots of people link two separate city tours together as a two-week vacation. But even for longer tours, this back-to-back approach is a great way to customize your vacation to suit your travel dreams. Here are just a few examples:
St. Petersburg, Tallinn & Helsinki + Scandinavia: This 23-day trip includes five capitals, six distinct cultures, and over 10 centuries of modern history along with some of the world's most stunning scenery and waterways.
Italy + South Italy: The ultimate month-long Italian experience overlaps only in Rome, where our Best of Italy tour ends and our South Italy tour conveniently begins. If you have the time, this is a combo made in heaven.
Heart of Italy + South Italy: If you can swing 22 days or so, this is an excellent alternative to the combo described above, with the same Rome ending/starting link. But you'll need to save the north (Venice, Lake Como and the Dolomites) for another trip.
Use your imagination. Because distances within Europe are relatively short and transportation options plentiful, many more of our 2009 Tours can be taken back-to-back. Play around with the possibilities. Where are your travel dreams taking you?
