Everett, WA – Take a unique journey through the incredibly varied landscapes of South America with travel specialist Italy4Real. Known as the land of extremes, this imposing and exquisite continent enjoys a strong connection to Italy.
Referred to as the Italian Diaspora, the “Southern Cone” attracted an influx of Italians in the early 1800s.
Over 60% of the population of Argentina has Italian roots. It is also home to the current pope, Jose Mario Bergoglio. Italians dominate much of South America, including Brazil. The city of San Paulo, Brazil is home to the most people of Italian descent outside of Italy.
And not just Italy, but European influence is prevalent through South America. Buenos Aires is known as the “Paris of the South,” and Quito in Ecuador is considered the “Florence of South America.”
Given the strong connection and history between Italy and South America, it is natural for Italy4real to expand its trips to include the destination of South American tours.
Italy4Real is offering tours to:
Argentina – home of the Gaucho and Tango and excellent wines as well as some impressive natural wonders like the massive Iguazu Falls, windswept Patagonia and the Perito Moreno Glacier.
Peru – best known for Incan ruins such as Machu Picchu, Peru offers much more, including excellent fusion cuisine, great hiking along the Inka Trail, jungle adventures in the Peruvian Amazon and fascinating cultural events.
Ecuador – straddling the Equator, Ecuador is a favorite destination for wildlife viewing. The biggest draw is the Galapagos Islands, which should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Brazil – the land of Samba and home to vibrant Rio de Janeiro. Explore the vast Amazon rainforest based in a jungle lodge; visit the wild Pantanal to see wildlife such as caiman, piranha and capybara; spend some down time on a remote island or soak up the Afro-Brazilian culture in Salvador.
Chile – the “long, skinny” country with a varied landscape of high plains, arid deserts, forests and lakes as well as glaciers and fjords. Like Argentina, Chile is famous for its wines and no trip to Chile (or Argentina) is complete without visiting the wine region.
Bolivia – Bolivia is an adventure travelers’ mecca, boasting a number of superlative experiences – the highest capital city; the world’s most dangerous road (great for biking); the largest salt flat.
Join the new adventure and visit South America for a unique and memorable experience.
