Costa Cruises will start offering land extensions to its authentic Italian cruises with Costa Cruise Tours. In partnership with Central Holidays, inclusive pre-cruise tours will be offered for cruise departures from Barcelona, Marseille, Civitavecchia and Savona. These land tours will be paired with sailings onboard Costa’s two newest ships – the just launched Costa Diadema (rendered above) and Costa Fascinosa (pictured below).
The objective is to provide North Americans with international cultural immersion onboard and off. These 4-day tour packages are described in detail at the following links: Barcelona – History and Culture, Provence – Relax, Culture and Family, Tuscany & the Wine Country – Relax, Spa & Wine, and Piemonte – Wine & Gastronomy. Each includes 4-star hotel accommodations, select meals, all transfers, and assistance from a local Costa Cruises/Central Holidays representative.
“Our shared goal in Costa Cruise Tours is to create the go-to option for European cruise and land packages that inspires prospective cruisers to make the most of their vacations by combining a Costa Cruises sailing with air and pre-cruise land arrangements — including accommodations, sightseeing tours, special experiential activities, and other unique offerings for the ultimate in packaged travel by land and sea,” said Gianni Miradoli, CEO of Central Holidays.
The first cruise tour is available on April 3, 2015, and packages are being sold now. For more information, visit the Costa Cruise Tours website here.
