Arrive Rome (2 Nights)

Ah Roma! Once the capital of the world and today yours to explore before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception and orientation drive past some of the city's most magnificent sights, including St. Peter's Basilica. Welcome Reception

Rome Sightseeing

Join your Local Specialist this morning for a tour of the Vatican Museums and Cultural Insight. Ascend the smooth and step-less Bramante spiral staircase, admire Michelangelo's magnificent frescoed ceiling in the Sistine Chapel and visit St. Peter's Basilica to see his sorrowful Pietà. We venture to the birthplace of western civilisation next and celebrate the enduring symbols that stand today as a testament of the might of an ancient power. See the impressive Colosseum, where brave warriors once battled for supremacy and Circus Maximus where chariots would thunder down the racetrack. The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore more of the city or people-watch in one of the grand piazze sipping an Italian coffee or two. Buffet Breakfast

Rome – Venice (2 Nights)

We journey through scenic Umbria today to see the impressive hilltop towns of Orte and Orvieto before travelling through Tuscany with its Chianti vineyards and terraced olive groves. Cross the lush Apennine Mountains en route to Venice, the Queen of the Adriatic. Tonight, we dine at our hotel.Buffet Breakfast, Dinner with wine

Venice Orientation

The exquisite ancient tradition of glassblowing takes centre stage this morning on a Cultural Insight to Giudecca Island where we'll visit a glassblowing workshop. Exploring the magical waterways of Venice, we take an orientation cruise by private motor launch to St. Mark's Square, viewing the ornate Doge's Palace and renowned Bridge of Sighs, so named for the sound prisoners would make as they crossed the bridge to meet their executioner. Spend the rest of the day exploring the charming calle and canals of Venice, or join an Optional Experience boat trip to the Island of Burano for a delicious traditional meal. Buffet Breakfast

Venice – Pisa – Florence (2 Nights)

The city of Pisa beckons this morning as we cross the Veneto plains and steep Appenine Mountains to see its incredible Leaning Tower, carved marble Cathedral and the Baptistery in the Square of Miracles. We continue through the vineyard-clad hills of Tuscany to Renaissance Florence for our two-night stay. Buffet Breakfast

Florence Sightseeing

Join your Local Specialist on a guided walking tour through the charming cobblestone streets and squares of Florence. See the multi-coloured Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria before venturing across the Arno River to Piazzale Michelangelo where you'll be rewarded with spectacular views of this glorious city. Spend the rest of your morning shopping for leather and gold, retire to a café for decadent hot chocolate, or consider visiting the Fine Arts Academy to see the famous statue of David by Michelangelo. The 12th century Castle of Trebbio welcomes us for an authentic Be My Guest Tuscan lunch, and olive oil and wine tasting. Buffet Breakfast, Be My Guest Dining

Florence – Siena – Rome

Our romance with Italy continues as we head south to the charming medieval city of Siena. See the impressive Piazza del Campo where the Palio di Siena horse race has been held for centuries, then consider indulging in a slice or two of the local Panforte before continuing to the Eternal City of Rome. Tonight we toast to our new-found gioia di vivere inspired by Italy. Join your Travel Director and amici for an unforgettable Farewell Dinner. Buffet Breakfast, Farewell Dinner
