Experience the sights and bites of delicious Rome, Sorrento, and more with an off-season escape to Italy—without the higher prices and crowds of the busy season.

Begin in the eternal city of Rome. Visit the Colosseum to imagine the spectacle of gladiator games, and see the Roman Forum, the heart of ancient Rome. Join an exclusive visit to the centuries-old Papal Palace and Barberini Gardens at Castel Gandolfo. Visit the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel to see Michelangelo’s ceiling paintings and The Last Judgment. Also visit St. Peter’s Square and Basilica to see the artist’s magnificent La Pietà. Sculpted in Carrara marble, this Renaissance masterpiece depicting Christ in his Mother’s lap is the only piece Michelangelo signed. Visit Capua’s Amphitheater and hear of Spartacus’ gladiator training here. In lovely Sorrento, see St. Antonino’s church, named for the city’s patron saint, and enjoy a free day to relax in this beautiful setting. En route back to Rome, explore legendary Pompeii—the excavated Roman city that was destroyed in 79 AD by Mount Vesuvius’ eruption, and preserved by ash. Conclude your Italian escape in Rome with a farewell dinner at a local restaurant.
