Itinerary

Welcome to Rome! After arriving at the airport, make your way to your hotel and spend your first day in the city as you please. At 7:45 PM, meet at your hotel for pickup and head to Via del Teatro Marcello. Our local guide will take you on a journey to discover the wonders of the Eternal City, charming during the day and romantic at sunset. You will explore the Jewish Ghetto, one of Rome’s most beautiful neighborhoods, rich in history and with a true Roman atmosphere. As you know, Rome is famous for its beautiful fountains, and we will visit the Turtle Fountain (Fontana delle Tartarughe) in Piazza Mattei. The Jewish Ghetto of Rome is the second oldest in the world after the one in Venice and is considered the heart of Roman cuisine. Next, you will walk to Piazza Della Rotonda to admire the illuminated Pantheon, a former temple of Marcus Agrippa that was later converted into a church. This is the only ancient Roman temple that has remained unchanged throughout the centuries and is stunning at night. Next, you will stop at the Trevi Fountain, where legend says that if you throw a coin over your right shoulder into the fountain, you will return to Rome someday. Your walk will continue to Piazza di Spagna, one of the city’s most popular squares, known for its setting at the bottom of the Spanish Steps. You will walk up these famous steps to enjoy a lovely view from the top! After this intensive and rewarding walk, we will end the experience by treating you to a creamy and delicious gelato. The tour ends in the Spanish Steps area, where you can enjoy the rest of the night on your own. Return to your hotel on your own and stay overnight.

You’ll start your day at 7:15 am by departing from your hotel in a deluxe coach and heading to Assisi. Once you arrive, you’ll have the freedom to explore the medieval walled town at your own pace. Be sure to visit the St. Francis basilica, home to works by famous artists Giotto and Cimabue. You’ll have some free time for lunch (not included) before hopping back on the bus and heading to Siena, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its Palio horse race held in the Piazza del Campo. Finally, you’ll check into your hotel in Florence, where you can enjoy dinner and a good night’s sleep.

You’ll begin your day with breakfast before embarking on a tour of the beautiful city of Florence, known as the “Cradle of Renaissance.” With the help of artists like Michelangelo, Italian art reached new heights during this time period. Florence’s rich history can be seen in its many monuments, churches, and buildings like the Santa Maria del Fiore, commonly known as the Duomo. You’ll be amazed by its magnificent dome, built by Filippo Brunelleschi and the “Campanile” tower, partly designed by Giotto. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the Baptistery, where Michelangelo imagined the “Gates of Paradise” bronze doors. You’ll also see Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo della Signoria (also known as Palazzo Vecchio), and the Basilica of Santa Croce. Enjoy lunch at a typical Tuscan restaurant in Piazza Santa Croce. In the afternoon, you can stroll the streets of Florence on your own or take an optional short trip to Pisa, one of the four main historical Marine Republics of Italy, where you’ll visit Piazza dei Miracoli and see the famous Leaning Tower. Dinner at leisure and overnight stay in Florence.

After breakfast in Florence, you’ll head to Bologna, where you’ll explore the elegant city center, known for its “porticos,” shopping streets, and more. Begin your tour at Piazza Malpighi and walk to Piazza del Nettuno and Piazza Maggiore (Neptune square and Major square), located in the heart of the city. You’ll also see King Renzo’s Palace, Palazzo Podestà, and the basilica of San Petronio, one of the largest in the world. Bologna is a food lover’s paradise, be sure to enjoy a delicious meal on your own. In the afternoon, you’ll continue on to Padova and visit the Sant’Antonio Basilica, a popular pilgrimage site for Catholics. Later in the afternoon, you’ll arrive in Venice: the City of Love, one of the most romantic cities of the whole world, where you’ll check into your hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.

Start your day with breakfast before being transferred to Piazza San Marco, where you’ll visit some of the most iconic places in the “Floating City” including the Palazzo dei Dogi and the famous “Bridge of Sighs.” After the walking tour, your tour leader will offer you a spritz or prosecco to celebrate your visit to Venice’s highlights. In the afternoon, you can explore the city’s canals at your own leisure. Return to the hotel for the night.

After breakfast, you’ll depart from Piazzale Roma and head to Tuscany, renowned for its picturesque landscapes, historic churches and castles, and delicious wines. Along the way, you’ll make a stop in Montepulciano, a medieval town rich in history and art. Famous for its “Nobile” wine, which you can purchase at local wine houses, Montepulciano also hosts an annual Jazz and Wine Festival in July. Your lunch at a typical restaurant is included. After lunch, you’ll have a short amount of free time before continuing on to Rome, where you’ll check into your hotel in the evening.

You’ll start your day with breakfast at the hotel, and depart between 7:45-8:00 am for the included tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Square with our exclusive “Skip the Line” access. Upon arrival, your guide will lead you into the museums where you’ll visit one of the world’s most important art collections. You’ll walk along the beautiful Galleries of Tapestries and Geographical Maps, admire Raphael’s Rooms, and the incredible Sistine Chapel. The tour ends in St. Peter’s Square where you can see the largest church in the world, St. Peter’s Basilica. Enjoy the rest of the day to explore the city at your own leisure. Overnight stay.
After breakfast, you’ll be picked up at your hotel around 7:00 am, and depart by coach heading south, crossing through the regions of Lazio and Campania, arriving in Naples. You’ll take a short panoramic tour, climbing up to Vomero hill to enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf of Naples, including Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia, and Procida, and the city below. You’ll have time to take some nice pictures before descending towards the port of Mergellina, where you’ll leave the city and travel south to Mount Vesuvius. Once you reach the town of Pompeii, you’ll have lunch and enjoy a real Neapolitan pizza. After lunch, you’ll enter one of the most important archaeological sites in the world, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the ruins of Pompeii, with skip the line entrance and a guided tour. You’ll learn about how people lived at that time, visiting houses and “bars” of the time and admiring frescoes and mosaics to imagine how rich and prosperous the city was before the tragic eruption in 79 AD. After the visit, you’ll drive along the Sorrentine Coast, arriving in Sorrento for dinner (dress code: jacket for men) and an overnight stay in your new hotel.

You’ll start the day with breakfast at the hotel in Sorrento, and have the day to yourself. Use this day to explore Sorrento independently and discover the city’s sights, sounds and flavors. The evening meal will be at the hotel (dress code: jacket for men).

Start your day with breakfast before embarking on an exciting excursion to the island of Capri, one of the most exclusive summer destinations in the Mediterranean. Depending on weather and sea conditions, you’ll have the opportunity to admire the famous Blue Grotto on a small rowboat. Afterward, you’ll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, and then have some free time to explore the island on your own. In the afternoon, you’ll check into your hotel in Capri, enjoy dinner, and relax for the night.
