REDISCOVER ITALY … UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN
Globus & Cosmos Invite Travelers to Experience More of Italy’s Beauty in 2018
LITTLETON, Colorado – September 27, 2017 – The rolling, vine-clad regions of Tuscany showcase Italy’s idyllic countryside, offering everything from illuminated, sun-lit fields and locals hand-rolling pasta from their family’s century-old recipes to an endless supply of regional wine. In 2018, Globus and Cosmos are taking travelers on roads less traveled through Italy’s picturesque Tuscany and inviting them to indulge in la dolce vita like the locals.
“For those who have already stood inside the storied walls of the Colosseum or cruised the romantic canals of Venice, we are venturing off-the-beaten-Piazza to Tuscany,” said Scott Nisbet, president and chief executive officer of the Globus family of brands. “Italy is chock full of incredible places waiting to be discovered and Tuscany boasts some of the most picturesque places on the planet, not to mention great food and wine.”
Some of the awe-some places featured on Globus and Cosmos 2018 tours through Tuscany, include:
Bolgheri – A destination every wine connoisseur knows, Bolgheri is a tiny – but spectacular – medieval village found along the Estruscan Coast. (Cosmos’ NEW! Gourmet Tuscany)
Volterra – Enclosed by stone walls, this mountaintop town dates back to the 7th century BC and invites travelers to take a step back in time on its medieval, cobblestoned streets. (Globus’ Gems of Umbria & Tuscany)
Lucca – Huge, Renaissance walls hide the beauty of Lucca – its cobblestone streets, gorgeous piazzas and picturesque promenades – from outsiders. (Globus’ Italian Sampler)
Montecatini – Italy’s largest and most famous spa town, Montecatini invites travelers to relax and soak in – quite literally – everything great about Tuscany. (Cosmos’ Splendors of Italy)
Siena – Often described as Italy’s best-preserved medieval city, Siena invites travelers to journey through its narrow lanes and learn about the wild horse race held on the square since 1283. (Cosmos’ Tuscany, Rome & Cinque Terre)
And, of course, no visit to Tuscany is complete without spending time in San Gimignano where towers rise-up from the walled village providing travelers a medieval escape in a magical, rural setting.
