Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

On this guided Italy tour—our most popular vacation—not only will you visit the main Italian cities—Rome, Florence, Venice, and Assisi—you'll also get to enjoy some of the smaller towns and scenic attractions. You'll visit the must-see sights in the cities, such as the Vatican Museums in Rome, Michelangelo's David in Florence, St. Mark's Square and Basilica in Venice, and much more. One tour highlight is Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into life at the peak of the Roman Empire. Admire the paintings still on the walls, and look for the early fast-food restaurants beloved by ancient Romans. You'll also have an opportunity to relax in the laid-back town of Sorrento. Explore the cobblestone streets lined with shops and restaurants, delight in the amazing views, watch the sunset dip into the sea, and see Mount Vesuvius across the bay. You'll also have time in beautiful Capri, where celebrities go to "get away from it all." On this Italy tour, Globus has also arranged special experiences for you, such as a visit to Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a visit to the Gardens of Augustus in Capri. Here, you'll have incredible views of the Tyrrhenian Sea from the tranquil gardens. From the relaxing towns of Sorrento and Stresa on Lake Maggiore to the faster-paced cities, this guided tour of Italy has it all!
