After breakfast, spend the day roaming around spectacularly beautiful Florence often called the “Cradle of Renaissance”, where, with the help of Michelangelo, Italian art reached its zenith. With Etruscan-Roman origins, the city burgeoned in the Middle Ages as a free Comune and was further enlightened during the Age of the Renaissance. You will be truly fascinated by the uncountable monuments and churches such as Santa Maria del Fiore, commonly referred to as the Duomo. You will be impressed by its magnificent dome built by Filippo Brunelleschi. Nearby, opposite a small piazza you will see the “Campanile” tower (partially designed by Giotto) and the Baptistery, with its bronze doors where Michelangelo imagined the mythical “Gates of Paradise.” Visiting the inner city you will visit the “famosissima” Piazza della Signoria (also known as Palazzo Vecchio), and the Basilica of Santa Croce. Enjoy a typical Tuscan lunch in Piazza Santa Croce then spend the afternoon wandering the cobblestoned streets of Florence unescorted, or take a short trip to Pisa (optional), one of the four main historical Marine Republics of Italy. In Pisa you will be enchanted by the Piazza dei Miracoli with the Duomo, the Baptistery and of course Pisa’s iconic Leaning Tower. A leisurely dinner at a restaurant of your choice ends the evening.

Testimonials

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date.  The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable.  The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.  The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned.  It is ...

Michael Rodney, Toronto, Canada

To Ornan and  IBMT Tours staff,

We just got back from tour with IBMT for our Bat Mitzvah Tour in Israel.

We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a ...

Chana Pulvermacher, Brooklyn, NY - 2017

Dear Sheryl,

The visit to Israel was better than advertised. All of us had an awesome and inspiring vacation or as I call it, an education. Danny is one of the nicest and smartest men I have had the pleasure of meeting. He made the trip so special and I cannot imagine any other person showing us Israel but Danny.

Hotels were great but for Eilat, but no big deal. Food in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv restaurants were delicious. Sheila in Tel Aviv was extraordinary. Dinners at hotels just “so so”. Loved Mitzpe ...

Craig Savage,

Ornan,

Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed.  We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that.  The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions.  Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Thanks again

Sara / Ornan,

I had a fabulous time on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested.  We had an especially knowledgeable guide with us Doron Hoffman who as a history major added so much more information and had a great demeanor.  I was part of an international group and made some new friends.   

Regards,

 

 

Janie Carpenter, US Embassy Moscow

Hi Ornan,

"Opting to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah this summer with IBMT is one of the best decisions we've ever made.  The itinerary took us to places around the country that I've never experienced on previous trips to Israel.  Experiencing our son's bar mitzvah atop Masada as opposed to a more rushed, crowded experience at the wall truly sets IBMT apart from other tour companies.  The professionalism of the IBMT staff both in North America and Israel was superb...everything was incredibly well organized and we were heartened ...
