The idea of travel to Italy evokes images of beautiful sun-soaked Tuscan villages surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, or romantic gondola rides on the palazzo-lined canals of Venice. This is a country where you can tour subterranean Etruscan tombs in the morning, have a delicious lunch at a village trattoria, followed by a wine tasting at a small, organic winery and then spend the evening at a jazz festival in a 1,000 year-old village. The beauty of Italy is unparalleled, producing artists the likes of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Giotto and Tintoretto, as well as some of the most incredible architects in history. There are many museums to visit, from the Uffizzi in Florence to the Vatican and more – but stroll through any village, town or city and it’s like you are in a living museum.

From the craggy snow-capped crests of the Alps to the sparkling Mediterranean Sea to the slopes of Mount Aetna in Sicily or the cliffs of Cefalu – anywhere you choose, this country will captivate you!


Visit the Vatican, take a romantic gondola ride in Venice, see the vineyards and olive groves of sun-soaked Tuscany, go skiing in the Alps or relax on the Mediterranean Sea

Our travels started back in March of 2020. Our trip started and included a great week in Tahiti then New Zealand. Although that’s when Covid exploded while we were there in Tahiti. That’s when we found out they had closed the border into NZ. Thankfully we had Esplanade to get us back home. We finally got back on track to New Zealand this March. We had a full itinerary planned. When we arrived, we had a driver waiting for us to take us to our Glamorous hotel with a great view of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Mountains in the background. We traveled to Milford Sound by bus then traveled thru out the scenic Milford Sound. Then they flew us back to our hotel. Another trip was on a Steamboat that took us to Farm. We had a great dinner there and tour of the farm that included the sheep dogs working the sheep. We could go on and on about this trip. The people from NZ our super nice. This trip was great from start to finish. Truly a bucket list trip. Esplanade will definitely be our choice for international travel, without a doubt. <br />
