Tour Itinerary

Linger longer in Italy’s three most appealing and profoundly cultural cities. Savour every part of Rome’s rich heritage. Soak up the Renaissance atmosphere of Florence and look beyond the canals and gondolas to gain a deeper understanding of Venice. Tour Pace - Leisurely: Easy pace itineraries are always full of extra leisure time to allow you to get the most out of every part of your holiday. Sit back and enjoy your included introduction to each of these fascinating cities, then the rest is up to you.

Day 1 - Depart USA
Board your overnight flight (not included).

Day 2 - Welcome to the Eternal City of Rome
Welcome to Rome - one of the world’s most historic cities, filled with classical antiquities, medieval buildings, Renaissance palaces and baroque churches! Transfers to the tour hotel depart Rome’s Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci Airport at 09:30, 12:30 & 15:30. Then this historic city is yours to discover. Later, enjoy a Welcome Reception with your Tour director and the opportunity to mingle and get to know each other over a pleasant evening of dinner and wine.(Welcome Dinner)
Veneto Palace, Rome

Day 3 - Papal & Imperial Rome
This morning, enjoy an orientation drive before joining a local expert who introduces the grandeur of the city today! Start off in the Vatican State, the richest community in the world. While others wait in line, you are fast-tracked through the VIP entrance into the Vatican Museums. Admire the collection of priceless art gathered by Popes over the ages. Your visit also includes behind the scenes access to parts of the Vatican not open to the general public - the famous Bramante Staircase. Then enter the sublime Sistine Chapel. This is where your audio headset comes into its own, providing clear, expert commentary from your guide. Gaze up now and truly appreciate the significance of Michelangelo’s famous painted ceiling. Next door in St. Peter’s Basilica, see one of Michelangelo’s early works, the Pieta, and the splendid dome completed after his death. Now cross the River Tiber to visit the Colosseum and imagine yourself back in the days of the gladiators. Finally, look out over the site of the Roman Forum, for centuries the centre of Roman public life. The afternoon is at leisure.(Buffet Breakfast)
Veneto Palace, Rome

Day 4 - Rome at Leisure
Another day for you to enjoy Rome at your own pace. Suggestions include the Catacombs, Pantheon or even an optional excursion to Pompeii and Naples? Perhaps spend some time in the boutiques of the Via del Corso, the Via Nazionale or the elegant designer stores near the Spanish Steps? As night falls why not sip a cappuccino at a sidewalk cafe in the Piazza Navona (the ‘Living Room of Rome’) and watch life go by!(Buffet Breakfast)
Veneto Palace, Rome

Day 5 - Pisa, the Wines of Tuscany & Florence
Drive northwards to Pisa where the first sight of the baptistery, bristling with marble spines and the colonnaded bell tower lurching behind the Cathedral is unforgettable. Continue through the picture perfect scenery of the Tuscan hills, where deep-green cypress trees pierce blue skies and olive groves hug the rolling hillsides. Call in at a family owned estate, an assemblage of vineyards, olive groves, a cluster of houses and sprawling farm that includes an old olive mill. Explore the complex world of chianti classico - learn from an expert about the local sangiovese grape, and the time worn traditions of wine making. Now on to your hotel in Renaissance Florence.(Buffet Breakfast / 1 three-course table d’hôte Dinner plus tea or coffee)
Club Florence

Day 6 - Florence, Birthplace of the Renaissance
Join a local historian to meet Michelangelo’s original ‘David’ in the Academy Museum. Then walk on to the multi-coloured marble Cathedral, belltower and Baptistery, adorned by Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise. You also visit the open-air gallery of Renaissance masterpieces in Signoria Square, the political heart of the city. The afternoon is free to explore at your own pace.(Buffet Breakfast)
Club Florence

Day 7 - Florence at Leisure
Another whole day to explore this glorious city. Everything is easily reached on foot. Traverse the medieval streets to the Ponte Vecchio, haggle for leather goods at the market around San Lorenzo or relax amid the terraces of the Boboli Gardens. The choice is yours, but be sure not to miss the magnificent museums and galleries – how often do you get the chance to see some of the most famous works of art in the world? At night, why not make the most of the warm summer evening and venture into the Tuscan countryside to taste the fine rustic dishes with some local Chianti wine. Alternatively, dine alfresco with crisp table-top linen and crystal glassware.(Buffet Breakfast)
Club Florence

Day 8 - Fair Verona & Venice
Passing the city of Bologna, today’s highlight stop is the elegant city of Verona, legendary home of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers. Walk with your Tour Director past the Roman Arena to the reputed famous balcony in the courtyard of the Capulet home. After free time to explore, take the autostrada east to Venice, ‘Queen of the Adriatic’! Your luxurious hotel gazes out over the Giudecca Canal and an unforgettable city skyline.(Buffet Breakfast)
Molino Stucky Hilton, Venice

Day 9 - Venice & the Magic of La Serenissima
Wake up ready to embrace this most romantic of cities. Admire the skill of glassblowers, mask makers and gondola builders on a visit to a traditional arts centre. Then board your private launch, sit back and enjoy your introduction to this unique city of ornate palaces, bridges and gondolas. Disembark near the Bridge of Sighs before turning the corner to stand in awe at the marble arcades of Piazza San Marco. St Mark’s Basilica, with its dazzling domes, occupies the corner next to the clock tower. Next door stands the pink and white marbled Doges’ Palace. This afternoon, there is plenty of time to explore the museums, galleries and churches or browse through the shops on the Rialto Bridge.(Buffet Breakfast)
Molino Stucky Hilton, Venice

Day 10 - Venice at Leisure
Who could refuse another day to drink in the unique atmosphere of this wonderful city! Lose yourself in the back lanes and ‘campi’, small squares, where tourists seldom tread and the Venetians go about their daily lives. Maybe visit some of the 90 churches which house masterpieces of Venetian art or explore the treasures of the Academy Museum? Sit a while at a canal side cafe to sip the local wine or sample delicious lagoon fresh fish. Perhaps cruise out to some of the other islands in the lagoon to experience the age-old lifestyle of Venetian fishermen and lace-makers? As evening descends, take your seats in a traditional gondola for a serenade through the ‘watery streets ’. Relax and enjoy the atmosphere, music and songs as you drift along the romantic canals before dining ‘alla Veneziana’. There can be no better place to celebrate your tour finalé than with good food, good wine and good company in this magical setting.(Buffet Breakfast / Celebration Dinner)
Molino Stucky Hilton, Venice

Day 11 - Arrivederci Venice
Bid farewell to this enchanting city today. Your departure transfer arrives at Venice Airport at 08:00.(Buffet Breakfast)
