For several years now, GLESUS has successfully organized group theme tours in Italy, featuring locations and activities especially geared towards families and their children. Each year we host week-long tours, with well-established itineraries and activities, for example, two different types of programs with Rome as its setting; another program, held during the period of Halloween, includes trips to Venice, Verona, Garda, Marnello and Florence as well as a visit to the famous Gardaland amusement park; another program has, as its setting, the northern Italian lake district, with visits to Turin, Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda; yet another of our programs takes place in Tuscany, featuring accommodates in a charming country agritourism surrounded by lavender fields and a mere stone’s throw from famous San Gimignano.
With us, you can visit the school of gladiators in Rome, as well as Italy’s largest film studio; you can become part of the production in a chocolate factory, or get a look behind the scenes to see how parmesan cheese is made; you can learn how to paint a Venetian mask and a create a Roman mosaic, cook authentic Italian pizza and hand-make lavender products while discovering yourself amidst a medieval festival or on an island with rare white peacocks; tour the most interesting museums and bring home artistic keepsakes created by the very hands of your children.
While these are our best established and highly requested travel programs, many new programs are currently in the making and ready to be launched, thus broadening an already infinite choice of creative and innovative theme vacations which, together with the breathtaking scenery and locations that only Italy can offer, are educationally and culturally stimulating for you and your children. Moreover, upon request we can create for you a special program, to suit your specific requirements, interests, and age of the participants. If you are part of a group of parents who wish to travel along with your children on a journey to Italy, or if you are teachers of middle schools, colleges, universities, and are eager to organize an interesting trip for your students, or if you run an established travel agency able to recruit the 25-30 persons necessary to fulfill the minimum number of participants, we will be happy to arrange a personalized group tour to Italy for you, your children or adolescents.
