ROME & VENICE All
roads lead to Rome. Or wait…on this vacation they lead to Venice as
well, so you can enjoy two of Italy’s captivating cities. You won’t
travel between the cities on a road, though. We’ve arranged for you to
travel via high-speed train from Rome to Venice. We’ve also arranged
three nights hotel reservations in each city, guided sightseeing,
buffet breakfast daily, transfers to/from your hotels, to/from the
train stations, and the services of a Local Host® in each city, a
“friend” who will help answer questions, offer suggestions and help you
get the most out of your vacation.
Your first Local Host will meet you upon your arrival at your Rome
hotel, present you with materials on the city, answer any questions,
and help you get started on your vacation immediately. This
friend-in-the-city will also help you personalize your trip. The next
day, enjoy included buffet breakfast before we pick you up for
exclusive Monograms sightseeing with a local expert. History comes
alive as you hear the insider stories and visit the sights you’ve heard
so much about—the mighty Colosseum, the amphitheater used for deadly
gladiatorial contests; the Roman Forum, the political, social, and
commercial center during the Roman Empire; Sistine Chapel, where you
will view Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment; and St. Peter’s Church and
Basilica, the very church where the Pope often presides. In Venice,
your sightseeing with a local expert includes the sights you cannot
leave Venice without seeing—St Mark’s Square and Basilica, Doges’
Palace, and the Bridge of Sighs. In both cities, your inside visits
include VIP access, so you get to skip the lines! Why spend your
vacation waiting in line with all the other tourists when you can spend
your time gazing at the famous works of art and imagining what it was
like to live in the Roman Empire?
In both cities, you’ll also have plenty of time to explore on your own.
Perhaps take a tour of Rome’s catacombs; walk through Villa Borghese;
or visit Harry’s Bar in Venice, a favorite hangout of Hemingway’s.
Maybe enjoy a Vivaldi concert in Venice or a ghost walking tour in
Venice & Rome. In both cities, you’ll have many opportunities to
make your vacation memorable! Your Local Hosts can give you suggestions
and also arrange activities for you. Also, be sure to ask them for the
best picture spots!
But that’s not all…in Venice, your package also includes a
glassblower’s presentation and entrances to Marciana Library and the
Correr and Archeological Museums. That doesn’t even include the time
you’ve saved by skipping the lines—not to mention the hassles and
headaches! So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and take the
vacation of a lifetime with Monograms!
We've carefully screened and selected the
right hotels in the heart of the destination and you can choose your
accommodations to match with your style and budget. Hotels are
convenient for shopping and sightseeing.
Meals Included Start your day off with an included
breakfast. For lunch and dinner, immerse yourself in the local
culture by sampling regional cuisine. After all, one of the best ways
to learn about other cultures is to eat like the locals.
Local Host Service
At the beginning of your Monograms vacation,
we provide you with a friendly, knowledgeable insider to offer hints
and recommendations, steer you off the beaten path, and help you
maximize every moment of your time.
Transportation Made Easy
Whether it's flight arrangements, transfers
from the airport to your hotel, sightseeing, or traveling between
cities, we can take care of your transportation needs and can include
it in your package price.
Packages feature sightseeing and orientation
in each city, so you don't miss the must-see sights. You can also

your interest in this quality tour by The GLOBUS Family
Gardner President Gardner Travel
and The Globus Family of
More than 75
years ago, Antonio Mantegazza bought a rowboat to transport commercial
goods across Lake Lugano in Switzerland. Who could know that rowboat
would launch the world's leading escorted travel company? Today Globus
is a global, family-owned company reaching every corner of the world.
Globus is now the first choice among individuals looking for vacations
with both domestic and international travel in a variety of styles to
six continents and hundreds of itineraries to choose from.
frequent trips across the scenic lake led him to
consider opportunities in a different market - tourism. His
entrepreneurial instinct pushed him to gradually acquire some
motorcoaches to transport tourists around the Lake Lugano area. In
1928, Antonio opened a company specializing in motorcoach touring
called Globus Viaggi. The company began with a fleet of 12 coaches
which operated local excursions for European tourists in Switzerland.
1950, Globus Viaggi had grown to a fleet of 33 coaches
and featured overnight excursions to Rome, Venice, the Dolomites and
the French Riviera. Gradually, these became regularly scheduled tours
and grew longer to cover more ground. Later that decade, under the
leadership of Werner Albek, Antonio's business partner, Globus
pioneered the concept of Grand European Touring by offering first-class
European tours to North Americans. By 1961, the company launched its
Cosmos arm, which featured affordable, value-priced European touring
for the cost-conscious British traveler.
coach tours were so successful that Cosmos soon
introduced another form of travel for the British market: air holiday
packages to the sunny destinations of southern Europe. By 1968, Cosmos
air holidays became so popular the company formed its own airline,
Monarch Airlines. Monarch Airlines started out modestly with two used
Britannia aircraft and eventually blossomed into one of the most
successful European charter companies with a large fleet of modern jets
and its own engineering division.
the flagship of Sergio Mantegazza, current president
and son of Antonio, Globus began expanding its markets beyond Great
Britain and North America. Since 1974, travel packages have been sold
in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and most recently in Southeast Asia.
Starting in the 70s, the company also aggressively expanded its
offerings, introducing travelers to more countries than any other tour
operator with packages to Africa, South and North America, Europe, the
South Pacific and Asia.
the Globus family of brands is marketed and operated
by a network of more than 32 independent tourism and aviation
businesses, serviced by a group of more than 5,000 professionals
worldwide. Combined, Globus, Cosmos, and Monograms carry over 500,000
passengers a year, making the organization the leading operator of
guided vacations worldwide. Globus attributes its success to the ideals
of founder Antonio Mantegazza. For three generations, his vision, hard
work, love for travel, and commitment have guided the company. These
values are the cornerstone on which Globus was built and will continue
