taly has long been one of the favorite destinations for Americans. The allure of Rome with its many piazzas and historical monuments, Renaissance Florence with the statue of David, the canals of Venice, the Tuscany countryside and the beauty of the Amalfi coast makes a visit to this country almost irresistible. Croatia is well connected with Italy via ferry or plane. Dubrovnik is a world heritage walled city. VISA & PASSPORT A valid American passport is required. U.S. citizens may enter for up to 90 days for tourist purposes without a visa, however visa requirements are subject to change. Check before traveling. LOCAL CUSTOMS Italians like dressing for the occasion. Conservative clothing is recommended when visiting cathedrals and sites of worship. Cappuccino is drunk till midday. SPOKEN LANGUAGES Italian is the official language and you must be prepared to get a response in Italian to your English question. This means you have been understood but you need to also practice your Italian.

SHOPPING All the major cities like Rome, Florence, Milan and Venice will overwhelm you with the quality and choice on offer. For cheaper goods you can pick up a bargain through a street vendor but you can be certain that the make is not what is on the label. MUST SEE Visit the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, the Coliseum and Piazza Navona in Rome. Enjoy Tuscan cuisine in Florence and include San Gimignano. Spend a romantic break in Positano.

isiting this region is an ideal opportunity to experience civilizations dating back to over 7000 years. Combining Cairo and the Nile is an unforgettable holiday for most. Jerusalem is a spiritual experience for many travelers and a contrast to modern Tel Aviv. Jordan’s Red Rose City of Petra and the Wadi Rum Desert will complete a journey of a lifetime. VISA & PASSPORT U.S. citizens need a valid passport and visa to travel to Egypt and Jordan. To travel to Egypt, tourists can obtain a renewable 30-day tourist visa on arrival at an Egyptian airport for a fee. Jordan issues visas to U.S. citizens for a fee at most international ports of entry and land border crossings upon arrival. However, visas are not issued upon arrival at the King Hussein Bridge (Allenby Bridge) land border crossing. Israel entry and visa requirements are subject to change. Check before traveling.

SPOKEN LANGUAGES Arabic is the written and spoken language in Egypt and Jordan. In Israel the 2 official languages are Hebrew and Arabic while English has a semi-official status. SHOPPING You will find many local bazaars in this region offering a variety of goods. Bargaining is part of the shopping experience if you want to get a good deal. MUST SEE The Giza Pyramids and the Egyptian museum, the wonderful sites along the Nile River, the World Heritage Site of Petra and Jerash in Jordan, the old city of Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

LOCAL CUSTOMS Muslims pray five times a day and during Ramadan Muslims must fast. In this region do not be surprised if you hear from your hotel the local Imam calling for prayer. In Tel Aviv you will find a modern way of life with many local traditions still observed.
