Though Italian gelato is considered the world’s best ice cream, you wouldn’t go to Italy just to get an ice cream cone But, hey, if you’re going to Italy anyway, why not get a free gelato?

TourCrafters, the Italian tour operator known for its good deals, is offering a new 7-day/6-night “Eat Your Gelato in Italy” package that starts at US$1,119 in April and includes round-trip air from New York to Florence, fuel surcharge, three nights at the Hotel Roma in Florence, three nights at the Hotel-Spa Villa Aurea in Cortona, daily breakfasts, a spa course with Turkish bath and sauna at the Villa Aurea, service charges, and taxes… and that free gelato. The price goes up US$165 per person in May and from September 19 to October 31.

This is a chance to have a real vacation, to enjoy the relaxing lifestyle of Tuscany, the fabulous art, the fashionable boutiques, the rejuvenating spa waters, the wonderful restaurants — yes, the taste of real food, and that free gelato at Vivoldi, which has the most celebrated ice cream in Florence.

The 4-star Hotel Roma has all the modern comforts in an 18th-century palazzo that overlooks the Piazza Santa Maria Novella and is only a short walk to the Duomo. The 4-star Villa Aurea, in the town of Cortona (made famous by the book and movie Under the Tuscan Sun), boasts a pool and full-service health spa. A car rental, which is more or less necessary, is available on request.

Air fare add-ons are US$25 from Boston and US$120 from Chicago and Miami. All prices quoted are per person, double occupancy, do not include airport taxes of approximately US$116, and are subject to availability and change. Reservations must be paid for within 72 hours of booking. For additional information, visit www.tourcrafters.com . For reservations, call 800-482-5995.
