Italian escorted small-groups specialist, Carolinasusi Italia Tours is ignoring the fall in value of our dollar against the Euro, and will run its annual Spring and Autumn tours to Italy in 2009 at prices it announced before the dollar fell.

"We're doing so in conjunction with our suppliers in Italy, who are majority family-owned operations and understand the problems Australian holiday-makers are facing with exchange rates," said Tour Partner, Carrol Helander.

Carolinasusi specialises in 3-week-long boutique tours to Tuscany and Umbria, and rather than moving in-and-out of hotels every night, bases its fully-escorted groups for a week at a time in three major centres (Montecatini Terme, Montefalco and Pienza,) travelling out daily to such iconic cities as Florence, Siena and Assisi, as well as less-frequented but equally-captivating towns and villages to experience true Italian traditions and cultures.

Included are visits to ceramics and leather artisans, chocolate and cheese makers, wine and olive oil producers and the Cinque Terre National Park, and maps are provided for individual sightseeing, shopping or finding somewhere to spend some quiet time.

Price starts from $6975pp twin-share ($750 single supplement available) including pick-up at Rome Airport on April 24 2009 or September 25 2009, full-time tour escorts, coach, ferry, funicular and train travel, 21-nights twin-share, and all breakfasts and most dinners; air from Australia is additional.
