January 19, 2016 | Voyages Jules Verne
Nothing beats the January blues better than planning a holiday. And where better to look for inspiration than amid the colourful pages of Voyages Jules Verne’s latest World of Wonders brochure? Completely re-designed for 2016, the new compact-sized brochure boasts a fresh, contemporary design, each of its tempting itineraries laid out across a colourful, easy-to-read double-page spread, full of enticing imagery.
Covering departures until April 2017, it’s brimming with suggestions for short breaks, long-haul stays and multi-centre holidays across Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and The Americas that blend all the benefits of travelling in a companionable escorted group with time to explore independently or simply relax and soak up the sights. Choose from a wide selection of inspirational journeys ranging from delightful river cruises, fascinating rail experiences and unforgettable grand tours to carefully-created itineraries with a particular focus on history, art and culture, or wildlife.
Many of the holidays featured in World of Wonders also include a VJV Special Event, creating yet more wonderful travel memories. Foodies can follow an Evening Tapas Trail in Spain, try a Taste of Madeira or sit down to dinner with the locals in Oman, Uzbekistan and Albania, while culture vultures will enjoy a private visit to a Palazzo in Italy, a private ballet performance in Russia or a visit to a ceramic artist’s workshop in Bolivia, amongst other wonderful experiences. Solo travellers are well catered for too, with an ever-expanding selection of departure dates available to book – without single supplement – to destinations as diverse as Iceland and India, throughout 2016.
There can be few more relaxing ways in which to visit – or re-visit – a destination than from the comfort of a well-appointed cruise vessel as it meanders along one of the world’s great rivers, enjoying an array of shore excursions en route. Renowned for the quality and range of its river cruise holidays, both in Europe and beyond, Voyages Jules Verne has also expanded its selection of exclusive cruises in 2016, adding:
* According to the itinerary chosen, prices are based on two sharing and include air travel (London – regional departures on request, where available), taxes, transfers, accommodation, some meals, a sightseeing programme and the services of guides and local representatives.
