Tour Itinerary

All roads may lead to Rome, but we know the scenic avenues to reach all the enchanting cities on your Italy bucket list. That serene passageway in Assisi, that chic leather boutique in Florence, that off-the-beaten-path bridge in Venice—we know the way! We’ve mapped out the iconic experiences of Italy, leading you through the historic streets and piazzas of the “Eternal City,” the vine and olive-clad hills of Tuscany, and the romantic canals of the “Floating City” so you can experience the art, architecture, vino, and espresso you’ve long imagined. On this dreamy tour of Italy’s great cities, you’ll wake up to lush gardens in San Martino in Campo, stroll through the medieval-walled city of Siena, ponder the curious tilt at the Tower of Pisa, and happily lean into the delicious plates of pasta, pizza, and pastries along the way.

Health and Safety Protocols for Globus Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Globus' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Globus has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Globus' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Globus' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Globus will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Globus will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Globus' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Globus will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Globus' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Globus removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Globus are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Globus will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Globus' commitment to clean, Globus is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Globus has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

Good trip with knowledgeable tour director and site guides. Hotels went from what was unexpected (Venice) to disappointed (Florence). The crowds of tourists was overwhelming at times. The sites we visited were absolutely wonderful. Overall we enjoyed our trip.

Globus was an excellent tour operator. The tour director often exceeded my expectations. I would definitely rebook with this operator.

Cicerone Hotel was a disappointment. Hotel location is fantastic however the room is dated and needed upgrading. The Murano hotel and NH were superb. Overall was satisfactory. This is our third trip with Globus and very likely will use globus for future trip.

The tour in Rome was a half day The options for pm should NOT have been optional. Very disappointed with this part

The tour was very well-organized but could be a bit hectic if one joins all the optional tours, but these optional tours actually enhanced my appreciation of the places we visit and allowed close and friendly interactions with other people in the tour.

This was a wonderful trip, which exceeded our expectations.

We just returned from our trip to Italy with Globus (booked through Affordable Tours). It was a magnificent trip that covered a lot in just a few days. We covered Rome, Assisi, Venice, Siena and Florence. The accommodations were very good (all 4 star hotels). We have to remember that European Hotels are very different from American Hotels. They were all charming and provided with the services necessary for a pleasant trip. While in Venice, the excursion to Burano is a must. While in Florence, the excursion to a Tuscany Farm Restaurant was the highlight of the trip. The Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and communicated well with most of the participants. My entire family of 5 had an excellent experience and we would not hesitate to book another tour with Globus. Affordable Tours has booked 3 consecutive tours for me and my family and has essentially been a pleasant experience every time. Thanks.

The trip was excellent and so was service by Globus. 

The Globus tour guide was excellent. 

This was a fast paced trip. For us we would not choose to change hotels every 2 nights again. The Vatican tour was done at light speed. 15 minutes in the Sistine Chapel is too little. Photo ops are by chance. Not once did a bus stop so we could get a great photo.

We were very pleased with Affordable Tours and with Globus.

We really appreciated all of the suggestions included in our travel folder and recommendations for traveling to Italy. The only thing missing was information about the local guides in each city. A suggestion, please include an envelope for each tour guide as well a tour director and bus driver. At least give a recommended amount to tip each local guide. Thank you so much. We LOVED this trip!

We had an amazing trip will definitely keep you I mind for any if our other trips.

We had a wonderful trip. Globus was amazing. The entire trip from our flight to and from ran very smoothly. I can honestly say I do not have one comlaint....only positives. Thank you!

The hotels on this Globus tour were a disappointment. The itinerary scheduled for the Carlton Grand Canal hotel in Venice, but that was changed to the Ambasciatori hotel on the mainland in Venice...so not the canal experience we had hoped for (& a reason we had booked this tour). A lot of time was wasted in Venice because we had to transfer by bus to the boats. We didn't find out about the change of hotel in Venice until the first day of the tour. The other hotels in Rome & Florence did not meet expectations.

Our Tour Director was excellent. Hope we will have another one like him the next time we have our trip. We enjoyed very much and was a very pleasant and memorable experience to all of us. Thank you Globus and Affortable Tours....

We only had one problem - getting to the Hotel in Rome. We did not see any offer for transfer on arrival by air in Rome. Fortunately, a tour guide with another travel company that we met on our flight into Rome, was able to set up the transfer for us!

It was a great vacation and would recommend both Globus Affordable Tours without any reservations.

Hotel rooms were way too small for two. Understand that is the European standards, but it's not worth the price. The Kraft and Villa Pamphili room sizes met the standards for the price of the room.

A few of the optional trips thru Globus did not provide transport back to hotel. I was little disappointed about the additional cost and trying to find my way in a new city. I will keep this in mind dealing with Globus.

The Globus tour guide was fabulously great. She was very knowledgeable, kind, organized and had great sense of humor. I really enjoy my experience. I learned a lot. The places were amazing. I really had an unforgettable time in Italy. =)

Tour Guide was excellent. Personal radios were a good idea--I just wish they worked more consistently.

The trip to Italy went off without a hitch and the extended time and tour we booked was easy to access once we got there.

We had a great time and look forward to the next trip. Hotels and our tour guide were great.

Overall it was a good experience and I did enjoy our vacation. The agent from Affordable Tours was great to work with.  Our Tour Director from Globus and Driver were excellent as well!

Globus is an exceptional organization. I am very pleased that we were able to tour a foreign land and see the highlights and have everything put together so well.
