The company is launching such a program for the first time. Earlier, Intourist had year-round blocks of seats to Rimini and the flights were only chartered for the New Year period. The regular flights were always basis for winter transportation to the Italian region. Now, the cost of the tour “Italian Express” from the tour operator starts from 217 Euros per person for 7 nights (with air flight, all transfers, breakfasts and excursion services).
With the flights to Verona, the tour operator will arrange ski (at the ski resorts of the Dolomites, Alta Valtellina and Dolomiti di Brenta), sightseeing tours, and tours to thermal resorts.
