For $499, Lufthansa
does more than give you
a 15-day Italian tour.
It keeps you from
feeling like a tourist.
We call it the "Roman Sojourn." It's our name for a special
tour during which we try to do for you what you'd do for your-
self if you had a real home-town knowledge of every major
city in Italy.
We take care of all the usual traveler-tormenting details
about food, lodgings, transportation, tickets, tips. All you do
is enjoy yourself.
We'll start by jetting you to Munich and give you a day in the
gorgeous Austrian Alpine country. Then we'll smooth your
way through Milan, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Naples, Capri,
Pompeii, and later take you back over the Swiss Alps to
Zurich, Stuttgart and Frankfurt.
For fifteen days we guide you to the places you want to see,
help you do what you want to do. And if some morning or
afternoon you'd like to skip something, that's all right, too.
Fact is, long before your Roman Sojourn is over, you'll tell
yourself that if you'd known Lufthansa could make seeing
Italy this easy, you would have gone last year.
