Package Map Picture
Italy

For centuries Italy has drawn foreign visitors - mostly for its architectural, artistic, and scenic splendors. Italy can truly be all things to all people. From the passion and excitement of noisy urban crowds to the quiet, rural idyll where the traditional life can be experienced. Italy's great cities are replete with rich attractions and culture alongside some of the most pristine beaches and spectacular mountains in the world.

Greece

Greece is THE land of ancient sites and architectural treasures: the Acropolis in Athens, the amphitheater of Epidaurus, the reconstructed palace at Knossos, the belly button of the cosmos at Delphi, fallen columns galore on the sacred island of Delos, and frescoed Minoan palaces on Crete. But don't expect a visit there to be a sober study of the ancient world, the Greek propensity for partying dates back to Dionysus. Then there are 1400 islands to explore. Greece is much more than what you were taught at school or the predictable summer image of glorious sunsets and sandy beaches.

Egypt

Egypt has been known as the cradle of civilization for centuries and also a cradle for inspiration; the source of many people`s discoveries and experiences. Discover the eternal Egypt of the Pharaohs and Great Pyramids, the last remaining wonders in the world, from the banks of the world`s second longest river, the Nile. The traces of this 5000 years civilization border the river valley for more than a thousand kilometers. Alexandria and its legendary port shines as the `Pearl of the Eastern Mediterranean` with its oriental flair and deep historical, cultural and archaeological heritage, and along all the North Coast with its stunning beaches.
