Abercrombie & Kent will debut Connections programs in Italy and Cuba in 2016, along with three Family Journeys in Central Europe, Italy, Scotland and Ireland.

The company also is set to introduce four themed European River Cruise Journeys, with a focus on Food & Wine, Art & Architecture and Christmas Markets.

The Italy: Rome & the North Connections program, for example, will feature guided explorations of Rome and Florence with an art expert. The itinerary also will include visits to a family-owned balsamic vinegar factory and farmhouse lunch in Cinque Terre, as well as experiential tours of Verona and Venice.

The 10-night program is priced from $6,395 per person.
