That’s why we’ve also arranged the services of a Monograms Local Host®, a one-of-a-kind feature to make sure you have a "friend in the city" who will answer your questions, offer you suggestions, and be there to help make sure your Italy trip runs smoothly.

Your Italy trip begins the moment you arrive in Venice, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and give you a set of materials to familiarize you with the city and to help personalize your trip.

Also, we've arranged for you to learn about Venice's history in glassmaking as you watch glassblowers fashion their delicate objects.

In Rome, your guided sightseeing with a local expert includes the attractions you cannot go home without seeing: the Vatican Museums; the Sistine Chapel, where the Conclave is held to elect new popes and where you’ll see Michelangelo's The Last Judgment and his famous ceiling paintings; St. Peter's Square & Basilica, where even today the pope often presides; the iconic Colosseum, built in the 1st century to hold 50,000 spectators; and the Roman Forum, where you’ll really get a sense of what life was like in ancient Rome.

You’ll also have time to explore both cities on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). You may want to take an excursion to Pompeii to see what life was like in 79 AD before Mount Vesuvius buried the town, join a ghost walking tour in Venice or in Rome, enjoy a gondola ride while being serenaded in Venice, or visit Rome's catacombs. You may want to shop at the designer boutiques and famous fashion houses in Rome, or browse the local stores as you wander through the maze of alleys in Venice. Perhaps just grab a drink and relax while you people-watch in Venice's St. Mark's Square or Rome's Piazza Navona. Your Local Hosts can help you arrange activities and will have plenty of suggestions.

And did we mention your Italy trip includes first-class transportation between the cities via high-speed train? We've even included transfers to/from the train stations. Plus, for someone unfamiliar with the train system, it can seem intimidating, so your Local Host will be there with you to help make sure you get on the correct train! Between the transportation and transfers we’ve included, the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, and the hotels we’ve booked, this Italy trip will be better than you imagined—just like Venice!

3 Nights Rome & 3 Nights Sorrento

Monograms $1276 7 Details

“Che sarà sarà.” This Italian proverb says, “What will be, will be.” While we believe this is a good attitude to have about life, we don’t take this attitude with your vacation to Rome and Sorrento. Instead, we’ve looked into every detail, handled all the logistics, and left nothing to chance. That’s why on this 7-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, we’ve arranged the services of a Monograms Local Host® in each city, someone who is there for you throughout your stay to answer questions, offer guidance, help arrange your activities, and ensure that your vacation runs smoothly. This one-of-a-kind feature, offered only by Monograms, is just another way we make your vacation hassle-free.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Rome, where we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will be waiting for you to help you get settled and to give you a packet of information to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing of Rome's famous landmarks. With an expert local guide, we’ll take you to visit the Vatican Museums to see its amazing treasures; the Sistine Chapel, where the Conclave is held to elect new popes and where you’ll view Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment; St. Peter’s Square and Basilica, where the Pope often presides; the iconic Colosseum, built in the 1st century and famous for its gladiator fights; and the Roman Forum, where you’ll see the oldest structures of the ancient city. And never fear…although these are popular attractions, we’ve secured VIP access for you, so you get to skip the lines! After all, wouldn't you rather be inside the attractions than waiting in line like all the other tourists?

In Sorrento, your sightseeing with a local expert highlights this beautiful town. Hear inside stories and little-known secrets as you walk along the Old Town and visit the cloister of St. Francis Church. We've also secured a limoncello tasting for you. This world-famous liqueur is made with Sorrento’s lemons. It's just another added feature from Monograms!

In both cities, you’ll have a free day to explore on your own. The possibilities are endless in Rome, but don't worry—your Local Host will have lots of suggestions and will be able to help arrange activities for you. You may want to visit Rome’s catacombs, take a cooking lesson with an Italian chef, shop at the designer Italian boutiques along Via Condotti, or explore Rome’s famous piazzas while enjoying its mouth-watering cuisine. In Sorrento, perhaps take an excursion to Pompeii to see what life was like in 79 AD before Mount Vesuvius buried the town, visit the nearby jet-set Isle of Capri, or shop at the local boutiques.

And did we mention we’ve included transportation between Rome and Sorrento via high-speed train (first-class)? We've even included transfers from your Rome hotel to the train station and from Naples, the closest train station to Sorrento, to your hotel in beautiful Sorrento. There is no better way to travel in Italy! With the transportation and transfers we've provided, the guides and sightseeing we've arranged, and the hotels we've booked, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy! Add to the comfort of knowing you'll have a Local Host throughout your stay—not to mention the stress and time saved by letting us handle the travel details—and you’ll have a marvelous vacation!

3 Nights Venice, 2 Nights Florence & 2 Nights Rome

Monograms $1756 8 Details

"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears...” Perhaps you’re heard this famous Shakespearean line. We’re not entirely sure, but we suspect he was about to say, “Monograms has made it easy for visitors to come to Rome—as well as Florence and Venice.” In fact, on this Italy trip, we've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train station. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there throughout your stay to help you feel comfortable, answer questions, offer suggestions, and help make sure your Italy vacation runs smoothly. You’ll have a Local Host in Venice, Florence, and Rome.

Your Italy vacation begins in Venice, where we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm benvenuto and a set of materials to help familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. We’ll show you St. Mark's Square and Basilica, as well as Doges' Palace, the very symbol of Venice, and the Bridge of Sighs. We've also arranged for you to watch skilled glassblowers as they work on their creations, and we've included entrances to the Marciana Library, and the Correr and Archaeological Museums. In Florence, your walking tour with a local expert includes the must-see attractions, such as Michelangelo’s David and the Ponte Vecchio, the arched, stone merchant bridge that has housed stores since the 13th century. In Rome, your guided tour with a local expert includes the attractions you must see in Rome, including the Vatican Museums; the Sistine Chapel, where you’ll see Michelangelo's The Last Judgment; St. Peter's Square and Basilica, built in 313 AD; the Colosseum, opened in 80 AD and famous for the gladiator fights; and the Roman Forum, where you’ll see the oldest structures of the ancient city.

In each city, you’ll have time to explore on your own. In Venice, perhaps enjoy a Vivaldi concert performance; take a ghost walking tour; enjoy a ride in a traditional gondola serenaded by live music; shop for a Venetian carnival mask; grab a drink at Harry's Bar, one of Hemingway's favorite haunts; or visit one of the many churches. In Florence, perhaps take an excursion to Sam Gimignano, Italy's most famous medieval town, and Verrazzano Castle, where you'll taste Tuscan wine; learn to make gelato; or shop for some Florentine gold jewelry. Rome offers endless possibilities. Perhaps visit one of the many museums, shop at the Italian fashion boutiques along the Via Condotti, take a ghost or walking tour, and enjoy Italian cuisine at one of the many local restaurants.

And don’t forget…your Italy trip includes transportation on the high-speed train (first-class) between the cities. We've even included the transfers so we’ll pick you up at your hotel, take you to the train station, get you on the correct train, pick you up at the next train station, and bring you to your hotel in the next city. Plus, sightseeing includes VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines at the attractions, such as the Vatican Museums, the Colosseum, and the Roman Forum. That saves over four hours of time just in Rome. That doesn’t include all the time we've saved you by handling your vacation details—not to mention the time saved by having a Local Host there to assist you rather than reading guidebooks and trying to figure it out on your own. This trip to Italy is a vacation of a lifetime!

Also, we've arranged for you to learn about Venice's history in glassmaking as you watch glassblowers fashion their delicate objects.

In Rome, your guided sightseeing with a local expert includes the attractions you cannot go home without seeing: the Vatican Museums; the Sistine Chapel, where the Conclave is held to elect new popes and where you’ll see Michelangelo's The Last Judgment and his famous ceiling paintings; St. Peter's Square & Basilica, where even today the pope often presides; the iconic Colosseum, built in the 1st century to hold 50,000 spectators; and the Roman Forum, where you’ll really get a sense of what life was like in ancient Rome.

You’ll also have time to explore both cities on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). You may want to take an excursion to Pompeii to see what life was like in 79 AD before Mount Vesuvius buried the town, join a ghost walking tour in Venice or in Rome, enjoy a gondola ride while being serenaded in Venice, or visit Rome's catacombs. You may want to shop at the designer boutiques and famous fashion houses in Rome, or browse the local stores as you wander through the maze of alleys in Venice. Perhaps just grab a drink and relax while you people-watch in Venice's St. Mark's Square or Rome's Piazza Navona. Your Local Hosts can help you arrange activities and will have plenty of suggestions.

And did we mention your Italy trip includes first-class transportation between the cities via high-speed train? We've even included transfers to/from the train stations. Plus, for someone unfamiliar with the train system, it can seem intimidating, so your Local Host will be there with you to help make sure you get on the correct train! Between the transportation and transfers we’ve included, the sightseeing and guides we’ve arranged, and the hotels we’ve booked, this Italy trip will be better than you imagined—just like Venice!

2 Nights Rome & 3 Nights Venice

Monograms $1274 6 Details

All roads lead to Rome. Or wait…on this Italy trip they lead to Venice as well, so you can enjoy two of Italy’s captivating cities. You won’t travel between the cities on a road, though. We’ve arranged for you to travel via high-speed train from Rome to Venice. We’ve also arranged three nights hotel reservations in each city, guided sightseeing, buffet breakfast daily, transfers to/from your hotels, to/from the train stations, and the services of a Local Host® in each city, a “friend” who will help answer questions, offer suggestions and help you get the most out of your Italy vacation.

Your first Local Host will meet you upon your arrival at your Rome hotel, present you with materials on the city, answer any questions, and help you get started on your vacation immediately. This friend-in-the-city will also help you personalize your trip. The next day, enjoy included buffet breakfast before we pick you up for exclusive Monograms sightseeing with a local expert. History comes alive as you hear the insider stories and visit the sights you’ve heard so much about—the mighty Colosseum, the amphitheater used for deadly gladiatorial contests; the Roman Forum, the political, social, and commercial center during the Roman Empire; Sistine Chapel, where you will view Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment; and St. Peter’s Church and Basilica, the very church where the Pope often presides. In Venice, your sightseeing with a local expert includes the sights you cannot leave Venice without seeing—St Mark’s Square and Basilica, Doges’ Palace, and the Bridge of Sighs. In both cities, your inside visits include VIP access, so you get to skip the lines! Why spend your Italy vacation waiting in line with all the other tourists when you can spend your time gazing at the famous works of art and imagining what it was like to live in the Roman Empire?

In both cities, you’ll also have time to explore on your own. Perhaps take a tour of Rome’s catacombs; walk through Villa Borghese; or visit Harry’s Bar in Venice, a favorite hangout of Hemingway’s. Maybe enjoy a Vivaldi concert in Venice or a ghost walking tour in Venice & Rome. In both cities, you’ll have many opportunities to make your Italy trip memorable! Your Local Hosts can give you suggestions and also arrange activities for you. Also, be sure to ask them for the best picture spots!

But that’s not all…in Venice, your package also includes a glassblower’s presentation and entrances to Marciana Library and the Correr and Archeological Museums. That doesn’t even include the time you’ve saved by skipping the lines—not to mention the hassles and headaches! So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and take the vacation of a lifetime with Monograms!

2 Nights Venice, 2 Nights Florence & 2 Nights Rome

Monograms $1653 7 Details

"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears...” Perhaps you’re heard this famous Shakespearean line. We’re not entirely sure, but we suspect he was about to say, “Monograms has made it easy for visitors to come to Rome—as well as Florence and Venice.” In fact, on this Italy trip, we've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train station. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there throughout your stay to help you feel comfortable, answer questions, offer suggestions, and help make sure your Italy vacation runs smoothly. You’ll have a Local Host in Venice, Florence, and Rome.

Your Italy vacation begins in Venice, where we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm benvenuto and a set of materials to help familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert. We’ll show you St. Mark's Square and Basilica, as well as Doges' Palace, the very symbol of Venice, and the Bridge of Sighs. We've also arranged for you to watch skilled glassblowers as they work on their creations, and we've included entrances to the Marciana Library, and the Correr and Archaeological Museums. In Florence, your walking tour with a local expert includes the must-see attractions, such as Michelangelo’s David and the Ponte Vecchio, the arched, stone merchant bridge that has housed stores since the 13th century. In Rome, your guided tour with a local expert includes the attractions you must see in Rome, including the Vatican Museums; the Sistine Chapel, where you’ll see Michelangelo's The Last Judgment; St. Peter's Square and Basilica, built in 313 AD; the Colosseum, opened in 80 AD and famous for the gladiator fights; and the Roman Forum, where you’ll see the oldest structures of the ancient city.

In each city, you’ll have time to explore on your own. In Venice, perhaps enjoy a Vivaldi concert performance; take a ghost walking tour; enjoy a ride in a traditional gondola serenaded by live music; shop for a Venetian carnival mask; grab a drink at Harry's Bar, one of Hemingway's favorite haunts; or visit one of the many churches. In Florence, perhaps take an excursion to Sam Gimignano, Italy's most famous medieval town, and Verrazzano Castle, where you'll taste Tuscan wine; learn to make gelato; or shop for some Florentine gold jewelry. Rome offers endless possibilities. Perhaps visit one of the many museums, shop at the Italian fashion boutiques along the Via Condotti, take a ghost or walking tour, and enjoy Italian cuisine at one of the many local restaurants.

And don’t forget…your Italy trip includes transportation on the high-speed train (first-class) between the cities. We've even included the transfers so we’ll pick you up at your hotel, take you to the train station, get you on the correct train, pick you up at the next train station, and bring you to your hotel in the next city. Plus, sightseeing includes VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines at the attractions, such as the Vatican Museums, the Colosseum, and the Roman Forum. That saves over four hours of time just in Rome. That doesn’t include all the time we've saved you by handling your vacation details—not to mention the time saved by having a Local Host there to assist you rather than reading guidebooks and trying to figure it out on your own. This trip to Italy is a vacation of a lifetime!

These local experts will be your friend in the cities—taking you to the train stations; getting you on the right train, so you don’t end up in a city you didn’t mean to visit; offering you suggestions on where to eat and where to go; translating for you; and letting you in on little-known secrets, like where to capture the best photo of St. Peter’s Basilica.

Your Italy trip begins in Rome, where Monograms can effortlessly escort you from the airport to your hotel, and you will meet your Local Host and be given materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, we’ll pick you up from your hotel for your exclusive sightseeing with a local guide. Among many things, you will see Rome’s must-see sights, including Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment at the Sistine Chapel, the historic Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and St. Peter’s Square and Basilica—all accompanied by inside stories that only locals know. In Florence, your expert local guide will take you to the Academy of Fine Arts to see Michelangelo’s David. But don’t worry—we give you VIP access, so you can skip the lines and spend your time inside the attractions and not bored in line! While hearing the stories and history behind the sights, you’ll also walk through Cathedral Square, Piazza della Signoria, and Santa Croce Square.

See St. Mark’s Square and Basilica; visit Doges’ Palace, the symbol of Venice, and the Bridge of Sighs.

In each city, you’ll also have leisure time to enjoy activities you desire. Perhaps visit the Catacombs in Rome, descend the legendary Spanish Steps, learn to cook from an Italian chef, and throw a coin in Trevi Fountain. From Florence, maybe take an excursion into the Chianti countryside or to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Be serenaded by live music on a gondola or savor a drink at a café in Venice’s St. Mark’s Square. Whatever you desire, this vacation to Rome, Florence & Venice gives you the opportunity to discover and experience it! And because we take you from your hotels to the train stations and pick you up at the train stations, you won’t waste time dealing with logistics, giving you more free time to do as you please on your Italy trip!

2 Nights Venice & 3 Nights Rome

Monograms $1326 6 Details

According to Fran Lebowitz, “If you read a lot, nothing is as great as you’ve imagined. Venice is — Venice is better.” Although she did not mention Rome, Rome is the same—even better than you imagine. And no one brings you Venice & Rome like Monograms! So stop imagining and join us on this Italy vacation. We've arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, connection between the cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Plus, Venice & Rome have so much to offer—historical monuments, ancient ruins, amazing cuisine, world-class shopping, and educational and fun walking experiences—that we know it can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve also arranged the services of a Monograms Local Host®, a one-of-a-kind feature to make sure you have a "friend in the city" who will answer your questions, offer you suggestions, and be there to help make sure your Italy trip runs smoothly.

Your Italy trip begins the moment you arrive in Venice, as we can pick you up at the airport and take you to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and give you a set of materials to familiarize you with the city and to help personalize your trip. The next morning, after included breakfast, we've arranged for you to have guided sightseeing with a local expert of the must-see attractions, including St. Mark's Square and Basilica.

We’ve also arranged three nights hotel reservations in each city, guided sightseeing, buffet breakfast daily, transfers to/from your hotels, to/from the train stations, and the services of a Local Host® in each city, a “friend” who will help answer questions, offer suggestions and help you get the most out of your Italy vacation.

Your first Local Host will meet you upon your arrival at your Rome hotel, present you with materials on the city, answer any questions, and help you get started on your vacation immediately. This friend-in-the-city will also help you personalize your trip. The next day, enjoy included buffet breakfast before we pick you up for exclusive Monograms sightseeing with a local expert. History comes alive as you hear the insider stories and visit the sights you’ve heard so much about—the mighty Colosseum, the amphitheater used for deadly gladiatorial contests; the Roman Forum, the political, social, and commercial center during the Roman Empire; Sistine Chapel, where you will view Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment; and St. Peter’s Church and Basilica, the very church where the Pope often presides. In Venice, your sightseeing with a local expert includes the sights you cannot leave Venice without seeing—St Mark’s Square and Basilica, Doges’ Palace, and the Bridge of Sighs. In both cities, your inside visits include VIP access, so you get to skip the lines! Why spend your Italy vacation waiting in line with all the other tourists when you can spend your time gazing at the famous works of art and imagining what it was like to live in the Roman Empire?

In both cities, you’ll also have time to explore on your own. Perhaps take a tour of Rome’s catacombs; walk through Villa Borghese; or visit Harry’s Bar in Venice, a favorite hangout of Hemingway’s. Maybe enjoy a Vivaldi concert in Venice or a ghost walking tour in Venice & Rome. In both cities, you’ll have many opportunities to make your Italy trip memorable! Your Local Hosts can give you suggestions and also arrange activities for you. Also, be sure to ask them for the best picture spots!

But that’s not all…in Venice, your package also includes a glassblower’s presentation and entrances to Marciana Library and the Correr and Archeological Museums. That doesn’t even include the time you’ve saved by skipping the lines—not to mention the hassles and headaches! So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and take the vacation of a lifetime with Monograms!

Monograms $1977 8 Details

Three’s company but four’s a crowd. That’s why we’ve included three of Italy’s most fascinating cities on this exciting trip to Italy. From the ancient ruins of Rome and the fascinating sculptures in Florence to the scenic canals in Venice, this Italy trip is sure to delight. But it’s not just the sights that will delight you; it’s what we’ve included to make sure your vacation runs seamlessly: hotel reservations at centrally located hotels, buffet breakfast daily, sightseeing, and transportation on high-speed trains between each city. Plus, we’ve arranged for you to have a Local Host® in each city. These local experts will be your friend in the cities—taking you to the train stations; getting you on the right train, so you don’t end up in a city you didn’t mean to visit; offering you suggestions on where to eat and where to go; translating for you; and letting you in on little-known secrets, like where to capture the best photo of St. Peter’s Basilica.

Your Italy trip begins in Rome, where Monograms can effortlessly escort you from the airport to your hotel, and you will meet your Local Host and be given materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, we’ll pick you up from your hotel for your exclusive sightseeing with a local guide. Among many things, you will see Rome’s must-see sights, including Michelangelo’s The Last Judgment at the Sistine Chapel, the historic Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and St. Peter’s Square and Basilica—all accompanied by inside stories that only locals know. In Florence, your expert local guide will take you to the Academy of Fine Arts to see Michelangelo’s David. But don’t worry—we give you VIP access, so you can skip the lines and spend your time inside the attractions and not bored in line! While hearing the stories and history behind the sights, you’ll also walk through Cathedral Square, Piazza della Signoria, and Santa Croce Square. In Venice, we’ve arranged for you to see a glassblowers’ presentation and enjoy a sightseeing tour once again with a local expert. See St. Mark’s Square and Basilica; visit Doges’ Palace, the symbol of Venice, and the Bridge of Sighs.

In each city, you’ll also have leisure time to enjoy activities you desire. Perhaps visit the Catacombs in Rome, descend the legendary Spanish Steps, learn to cook from an Italian chef, and throw a coin in Trevi Fountain. From Florence, maybe take an excursion into the Chianti countryside or to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Be serenaded by live music on a gondola or savor a drink at a café in Venice’s St. Mark’s Square. Whatever you desire, this vacation to Rome, Florence & Venice gives you the opportunity to discover and experience it! And because we take you from your hotels to the train stations and pick you up at the train stations, you won’t waste time dealing with logistics, giving you more free time to do as you please on your Italy trip!

2 Nights Florence & 2 Nights Rome

Monograms $1083 5 Details

According to Samuel Johnson, “A man who has not been in Italy, is always conscious of an inferiority.” We don’t want you to feel inferior, which is why Monograms has made it easy for you to travel to Italy. On this Italy vacation package, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations at centrally located hotels, daily breakfast, sightseeing, first-class train travel between Florence and Rome, and transfers from/to your hotels & the train stations. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature offered by Monograms is the service of a Local Host® in both cities, in essence a “friend in the city” who can help you with activities, offer suggestions and recommendations, and answer your questions.

Your Italy trip begins in Florence, where your Local Host will greet you with a smile and a set of materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who will share inside stories and secrets on the must-see attractions, such as Michelangelo’s original David, the Ponte Vecchio, and more. With your Certified Local Guide in Rome, you’ll view Michelangelo’s famous ceiling paintings at the Sistine Chapel, admire the Colosseum and Roman Forum, and much more. Plus, we’ve arranged VIP access so rather than waiting in long lines like all the other tourists, you’ll skip the lines, leaving you more time to be inside the attractions!

You’ll have time to explore Florence and Rome on your own (with the help of your Local Host of course). In Florence, you may want to take a gelato-making lesson; enjoy a walking tour of the city by night; take an excursion to see the Leaning Tower in Pisa and to Lucca, featuring some of Italy’s finest medieval and Renaissance architecture; browse for works by local artisans and goldsmiths on the Ponte Vecchio, dating to 1345; or just relax at a fine Tuscan restaurant sipping Chianti wine. In Rome, you may want to shop at some of the famous fashion boutiques, visit one of the many museums, take an excursion to the Borghese Gallery and Gardens to see its vast collection of sculptures and paintings, admire the fountains in the Piazza Navona, or just enjoy authentic Italian pizza at a local restaurant. Be sure to ask your Local Hosts for their favorite walks, restaurants, and shops.

And did we mention we’ve included first-class travel on the high-speed train between Florence and Rome? You won’t have to deal with the stress of purchasing tickets and finding the right train. We’ve handled all of that for you—not to mention your hotel reservations, sightseeing, and breakfasts. All you have to do is grab your camera and get ready for an amazing vacation to Italy!
