Who would have thought that this single boat would launch one of the world’s leading travel companies? Today, the Globus family of brands is a global company reaching every corner of the world, yet remains family-owned and steeped in the values Antonio Mantegazza had when he set out across Lake Lugano in 1928 – to enlighten travelers by showing them the very best of the destinations we know so well.
