Also on the docket for the visitor is a walk through history with visits to old Rome, the Colosseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill are the highlights of the old world tour that has something for everybody.

•    Apart from riding in a gondola through the waterways of the old city of Venice, one of the highlights is Piazza San Marco or St Mark’s Square in Venice. The square hosts St. Mark’s Basilica, a beautiful church that has stood for centuries and the design is a thing of beauty. Since the early days of the Republic, the market was the central hub of civic and religious activity without peer. The city boasts many activities that the traveler can enjoy on foot or through a gondola tour of the city and the shops and people present an opportunity to intersect with traditions and customs that have been alive for decades. Great food and wine are the expectation, and the gastronomic delights of the Venetian cuisine will be spoken of fondly for years as visitors reminisce about the great time they had in Venice.

•    Florence is home to many artistic expressions of Italian culture and there are many exhibits to visit when you spend some time in Florence. In the city’s center, you can tour the Duomo Complex, Giotto’s Bell Tower and visit the Academia Gallery. Here, at the gallery, many pieces of fantastic, timeless art are displayed and did we mention that the sculpture ‘David,’ by Michelangelo could be seen and admired. When in Florence, a visit to the Arno River and a walk over the Ponte Vecchio is a must for all visitors of the city. A cosmopolitan city if ever there was one, Florence is rich in art history and culture that make it a must-see destination for any visitor to Italy.

•    A trip to Italy wouldn’t be complete without a seaside stops in Sorrento. See the Blue Grotto on the Isle of Capri, or a day tour of the coast that is captivating for the stunning views that await the day-tripper on tour. Small towns dot the area and you can visit Villa Rufolo, a town that inspired Wagner to write one of his most famous operas, Parsifal. The warm and friendly confines of the area allow the tourist to take to the streets to savor the culture and charm in a way that Italians are renown for. The best part of IBMT Tours is they leave time for the traveler to experience Italy on their terms with a less structured environment that lends itself to exploring and experiencing the country in ways that you just can’t measure.

We went on a church group to the Holyland with IBMT Tours and had a great trip, everything was planned for us perfectly. There was over 123 people in four different bus groups and things went smoothly, I thought it was going to be hectic with that many people in the group but IBMT did a wonderful job and made sure the buses did not go convoy, every bus had its own time table and itinerary for the day, our guide Dani was so knowledgeable and loving. We love you IBMT and we will recommend you guys. ...
