Old world charm that intersects with 21st century is part of the allure that the country has to offer that is showcased by IBMT.
• Starting with the great world capital we know as Rome, history, and art are featured as a starting point for the vacationer. The Vatican, the Sistine Chapel, and St Peter’s Basilica are the tour stops in a structured schedule and there is ample time for exploring when the organized activities have concluded. 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 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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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.

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.
"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 ...
