It’s Spring Break: take the kids to Italy

Make ancient Rome and Renaissance art come alive for your children with TourCrafters’ Spring Break package to Rome and Florence. It’s a better investment than a trip to Disney World.

The package – for 2 adults and 1 child up to 16 in a triple room – costs US$1,049 per adult and US$720 per child. For 2 adults and 2 children – in adjoining doubles in Rome and a large suite with queen and two singles in Florence – the price is US$1,209 per adult and US$830 per kid. These prices include air fare from New York, 4 nights’ accommodation at the 4-star Hotel Michelangelo in Rome, 4 nights at the 4-star Hotel Rivoli in Florence, 8 buffet breakfasts, arrival transfer, Hop On Hop Off tour of Rome, Eurostar train ticket, free ice cream for kids in each city, and a special kit, Florence guidebook, and restaurant discount for kids. Prices are valid from March 1 to 31, 2012.

This is the perfect opportunity to introduce the kids to the Italian lifestyle – not to mention authentic pizza, pasta, and gelato – as well as showing them the Roman Forum, Colosseum, catacombs, St. Peter’s, and other highlights of the Eternal City. They’ll enjoy the high-speed Eurostar train to Florence, and be amazed by Michelangelo’s David, the Ponte Vecchio, Florence’s cafés, and maybe even a painting or two in the Uffizi.

All prices are per person, double occupancy, are subject to availability and do not include airport taxes of approximately US$100, fuel surcharges of approximately US$460, or city taxes that must be paid directly to the hotels in euros. Add-on air fares from other departure cities are: US$80 from Washington, DC, US$220 from Miami, US$150 from Chicago, and US$260 from Los Angeles.

Reservations must be paid for within 72 hours of booking. For additional information about this and other special Spring Break packages for couples, families, and friends to Italy, France, Spain, and Turkey, visit www.tourcrafters.com . For reservations, call 800-482-5995.
