Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 26, 2012

Travel for leisure did not gain popularity until the 17th century when the Grand Tour as it was then called, became an essential rite of passage for the young European elite. Young men traveled to Europes most culturally affluent cities to supplement their education via direct exposition to foreign languages, the arts and ancient history. Travel to Florence, Venice and Rome was essential on the tour and remains. Select Italys 15 year anniversary marks the companys own history of leisure travel; to celebrate, Select Italy will offer its loyal travel agents an opportunity to make a Grand Tour of Rome, Florence an Venice even more desirable with the 15x15x15 promotion.

Over the last 15 years, Select Italy has had the privilege of working with travel agencies around the globe. These partnerships are undoubtedly why this company has flourished over the years. The quality of our services reflects the quality of our friends, and the travel agents we work with are of the highest caliber of both says Andrea Sertoli, President and CEO of Select Italy. With over a decade long stint topping Travel and Leisures A-List, Select Italy has built a solid reputation in travel to Italy. To commemorate the valuable partnerships which have propelled Select Italy to the top of the industry the company has introduced the 15x15x15 promotion until the end of February. This promotion guarantees a 15% commission for travel agents who book one or more of 15 selected services in Rome, Florence or Venice. Select Italy specializes in creating custom itineraries, and currently offers its own Grand Tour of sorts with the Big 3 vacation package; an amendable itinerary which includes travel to Florence, Rome and Venice. Clients can opt for three to five-star lodging, customize the order of cities or the length of their stay.

Aside from this vacation package, agents can choose from a variety of other services before the end of February to receive their due 15%. For example, clients interested in music will not want to miss an opera or concert at St. Marks Anglican Church while in Florence. This beautiful theater has attracted admirers of music since the industrial revolution, an era which spiked the popularity of leisure travel throughout Europe. For those grand tourists eager to learn Italian history, the Venetian Renaissance After the Plague private walking tour in Venice examines the influence of the Black Death on Venice during and after the Dark Ages. Finally, Rome boasts many of the most elegant enotecas throughout Italy; enologists and appreciators alike will cultivate their palates with the service Wine Tastings You Wont Forget.

Italy has fascinated travelers and peaked the imaginations of the curious, the artistic and the scientific since the beginning of Western civilization and will continue to do so indefinitely. Select Italy specializes in the very place travelers have sought for hundreds of years for only fifteen; with thanks to the 4200 registered travel agents this relatively young company celebrates its growing success. Happy Birthday, Select Italy!
