Tour Itinerary

Visit the Vatican before the crowds, journey through Tuscan landscapes and cruise along the canals of Venice. You'll also encounter the Renaissance highlights of Florence and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Day 1 - Arrive Rome (2 Nights)
Indulge all your senses in the imperial city of Rome, your introduction to a memorable encounter with Italy which will have you returning for more. Spend your afternoon relaxing after your journey, or explore the ancient city streets before joining your Travel Director and travel companions for a Welcome Reception. This evening, we take an orientation drive past Rome's most magnificent sights which we will have an opportunity to explore tomorrow.
Accommodation: Cicerone
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Rome Sightseeing and Free Time
Our encounter with Rome begins in the Holy See as we visit the Vatican Museums in the company of a 'Local Specialist' to admire the masterpieces that have been collected by Popes throughout the centuries. Gaining priority early admission, we admire the magnificent frescoed ceiling in the Sistine Chapel when it is less crowded and visit St. Peter's Basilica, the greatest church in Christendom, to see Michelangelo's sorrowful Pietà. Crossing the Tiber, we venture into Ancient Rome to visit the imposing Colosseum and view Circus Maximus, once the site of tremendous chariot races. Spend a leisurely afternoon exploring Rome. Admire the Spanish Steps or toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain to secure your speedy return.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Rome – Venice
This morning, we venture through the valley of the Tiber north into the green and golden landscapes of Umbria. We pass the hilltop towns of Orte and Orvieto, travelling through Tuscany's terraced olive groves and the Appenine Mountains bound for Venice, the 'Queen of the Adriatic'.
Accommodation: Novotel Mestre Castellana
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 4 - Venice Orientation – Verona
We cruise by private launch to the city's most prominent sights, including views of the Bridge of Sighs, St. Mark's Square, St. Mark's Basilica and the ornate Doge's Palace. 'Dive Into Culture' witnessing first-hand the intricate craft of glassblowing. Soak up the pageantry and elegance of Venice before continuing to Verona, home of Shakespeare's ill-fated lovers Romeo and Juliet, where we'll spend the night.
Accommodation: Leopardi
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Verona – Pisa – Florence
Pisa's UNESCO-listed Square of Miracles is our first stop today where we will have the opportunity to view the Leaning Tower before arriving in Florence. Explore the birthplace of the Renaissance and home to the Medici dynasty, whose penchant for beautiful art and architecture created one of the cultural centres of the world. Tonight we 'Connect With Locals' over a 'Be My Guest' dinner at a castle set within a celebrated wine and olive oil estate.
Accommodation: Grand Mediterraneo
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Florence Sightseeing – Rome
We join a 'Local Specialist' today to delve into the rich medieval and Renaissance history of Florence. Our sightseeing tour will take us to the Piazza della Signoria with its impressive sculptures and imposing palazzi. Wandering through the narrow streets, we encounter the multi-coloured marble Duomo and famous Baptistery. We'll learn about the quality and workmanship of one of this city's historic industries at a demonstration of Florentine leathercraft. Next, we'll view the 675-year-old Ponte Vecchio, a spectacular feat of engineering dating from the Middle Ages and today lined with jewellers, art dealers and souvenir shops. Our journey continues through Umbria to the valley of the Tiber River and back to Rome. Toast to a memorable holiday with newfound friends at a Farewell Dinner.
Accommodation: Grand Tiberio
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 7 - Depart Rome
After breakfast, it's time to say a fond arrivederci to Rome, Italy and your travel companions as you return home with wonderful memories of this magnificent destination. Transfers are available. Conditions apply.

Questions & Answers

Question: Do you have tours for Florence, Verona and Venice only? I am planning around August 5?2 adults 2 teens

For the most accurate availability, please give us a call and one of our travel consultants will be happy to assist you.

Question: Our last stop in Germany will be Munich on July 14. Booked the flight back home from Rome on July 29. With a flexible time we'd like to join a group tour in Italy. Any good ideas?

That sounds great! To find the best Italy tour for your needs, I recommend giving us a call and speaking to one of our certified travel consultants. Hope to hear from you soon!

Question: Are transfers to and from the airport included when you purchase air in the package?

Yes, transfers are included on brochure dates if you purchase an air-inclusive package; however you will still need to meet the transfer times. Your travel consultant will check with the operator to ensure the flights meet the transfer window.

Question: Why would I book though you and not through Trafalgar directly? Are your prices better and is it the same tour?

We offer unbeatable service with a proven track record of awards and reviews. We guarantee the best price, and yes, our prices are better than Trafalgar direct. You will receive the same exact tour as you would if you booked directly with Trafalgar.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Everything went so smoothly & went above our expectations! All of the services booked through affordable tours were on time & professional! Trafalgar planned every detail & their excursions were well worth every penny! We're definitely interested in traveling with Trafgar again!

By David H on Sep 06, 2019

Trafalgar was great. So many details were taken care of so that I didn't have to think about them. Our tour guide was great and the entire experience was great I would definitely consider another Trafalgar tour.

By April M on Aug 23, 2019

This was an experience of a lifetime. It met and exceeded all our expectations. Everything was well organized. The tour guide was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the area and professional. Accommodations were nice and well located.

By Karen D on Aug 16, 2019

A couple of the hotels were not great, even by Italian standards. I realize this was not Affordable Tours' fault. I also wasn't aware upfront about the add on excursions which made the trip more costly than originally budgeted.

By Eve S on Apr 12, 2019

This trip was everything we expected and more! The tour operator (Trafalgar) was exceptional! Hotels were very good.

By Ronald W on Sep 21, 2018

Trip was excellent, Some hotels were just ok however, I do realize this is Europe and somewhat different than US Hotels. The tour director was very informative and explained everything in detail!.

By Richard A on Aug 31, 2018

Due to short amount of days and the many cities to visit the tour was nonstop. Early wake up every morning.

By Dominador L on Aug 31, 2018

Our Travel Director (Maite) was exceptionally AWESOME all throughout the tour up to our early, early departure from Rome. She's hard to be topped!!!

By Maria M on Jun 08, 2018

Excellent service & everything I was told was accurate.

By Mark S on May 25, 2018

When traveling in a foreign country going with a tour company is the only way to travel! It exceeded our expectations. We saw, did and learned so much more than if went on our own. Plus we met great people. Fun vacation! Can't wait to book the next one!!

By Edward F on May 18, 2018

It's was a great experience, but a lot faster pace than I expect, so put on comfortable shoes and get ready for a lot of walking. But, well worth it. Our tour guide Pino was fantastic and so were the specialty tour guides. Everyone was very knowledgeable, which is very impressive.

By Mario B on Oct 13, 2017

Excellent accommodations all the way around, professional and very knowledgeable staff.

By Kathy J on Oct 13, 2017

The days were totally packed full. There was very little free time for independent exploration of points of interest, museums, shopping, etc. But on the plus side, we saw more than we ever could have on our own within the same time frame, and without any hassles. We were absolutely delighted by the Be Our Guest experience in Tuscany - what a treat! The optional excursions enabled us to gain access to sites before the crowds; however, I would gladly have paid for them as part of our package vs. feeling that we were "nickel and dimed" for each option.
