According to Mark Twain, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.” While Monograms can’t help you write a book, hike up Mount Everest, or swim across the English Channel, we can make sure you do one of your dreams—travel to Italy! That’s why on this Italy vacation package, we’ve arranged your hotel accommodations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, high-speed train connection between Rome and Florence, and transfers from/to your hotels & train stations. Plus, Rome and Florence have so much to offer that it can be hard knowing where to start. That’s why we’ve arranged the services of a Local Host® in both cities, a local expert to offer suggestions, answer questions, and ensure your vacation is all you want it to be.

Your Italy trip begins as soon as you arrive in Rome, where we can seamlessly whisk you from the airport to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will welcome you with a hearty benvenuto and present you with a destination guide to acquaint 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, who will share inside stories around the must-see sights such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Sistine Chapel, and more. The VIP access offered by Monograms means you’ll spend more time visiting the sights rather than waiting in long lines! In Florence, where you’ll take an escorted walk with a Certified Local Guide, you’ll stand in awe of Michelangelo’s famous David statue and admire the medieval Ponte Vecchio.

You’ll also have time to explore Rome and Florence on your own. In Rome, you may want to visit the catacombs, throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, shop at the famous fashion boutiques, or take an Italian cooking class. In Florence, sip Chianti wine at a Tuscan restaurant; explore the Uffizi Gallery, with art work collected by the Medici family; take an excursion to Pisa to see the famous Leaning Tower; or experience Florence by night on a guided walking tour. Your Local Hosts can help arrange excursions and will have plenty of suggestions for shopping, restaurants, and more.

Don’t delay...Rome and Florence are waiting for you. We’ve handled all the stressful parts of travel—making the reservations, purchasing the train tickets, getting you to/from the train stations, finding local experts who can really give you an insider’s view of the cities, and more. All you have to do is cross Rome and Florence off your list of things to do, and enjoy this wonderful Italy trip!
