FOCUS ON FALL 2015 SWT TOURS

 

We want you to come away from our 5 day tour
with more than vivid  memories of London’s majestic  monuments

Our tour expands your view of London:

THEATRE:  3 plays at such venues as the Royal Court, the Old Vic, the National Theatre depending what’s on. London theatre has short runs for its plays so we have to wait closer to our tour to make play choices.

A NEW HOTEL LOCATION: Belgravia, a vibrant upscale neighborhood close to Buckingham Palace, Victoria Station, Sloane Square with lots of small restaurants and boutiques We like  not being in a crowded tourist area and at a chain hotel.

LUXURY LONDON: Strategy: if we can’t afford high room prices of London’s luxury hotels, we can afford a visit and a meal. Sprinkled throughout our itinerary the London luxury experience : Lunch at the iconic Savoy Hotel, , shopping at Fortnum & Mason; afternoon tea at the Goring, Hotel, optional spa treatment at the Four Seasons

Contemporary Athens can compete with any of the world’s capitals.  It is sophisticated, lively and stylish. 

And the big bonus is the reality of the magnificence of the Acropolis that inspires wonder at the heritage of classical Greece.  Our tour includes Santorini, the most beautiful of all the Greek Islands, and a one-day cruise to three islands: Aegina, Poros, and Hydra.

A year ago I made 2 trips to Puglia. These trips do not qualify me as an expert. These research trips give me confidence in choosing the parts of Puglia that reflects my interests and visits “must see” Puglia.

Highlights:

Pogliano a Mare, Alberobello,

No other tour also takes you to
Metaponto in Basilicata with its Greek ruins

Paris exciting museum news: The Picasso Museum has been completely transformed from a dark, dreary building to a light bright home for  the largest collection of Picasso work.

And the brand new LVHM Museum designed by Frank Gehry is more an architectural statement than a traditional art museum
