Tour Itinerary

You could spend an eternity exploring the enchanting Italian capitals of Venice, Florence and Rome, but this exciting 7-day journey with Costsaver will deliver a multitude of memorable experiences that will linger long after you've returned home. Take a walk down memory lane - one that spans centuries of tradition, heritage and culture as you encounter such iconic sights as the mighty Colosseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and Florence's spectacular Duomo. Your exploration of this veritable open-air museum will leave you enriched and inspired.

Day 1 - Arrive Rome (2 Nights)
Buongiorno! Rome kicks off your epic Italian trilogy - one that will scratch beneath the surface of Italy's iconic cities. Upon arrival, check in to your hotel, then spend the rest of the day recovering from your journey or pound the pavements to discover why Rome so deserves its title, the 'Eternal City'. Later, you'll meet up with your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a glimpse into what lies ahead. There's even time for a leisurely stroll to one of the city's thronging piazze to people-watch or join an optional sightseeing tour of Rome followed by a light Italian dinner, if such a thing exists! Embrace life lived the Italian way - to the fullest.
Accommodation: Ergife Palace

Day 2 - Rome Sightseeing and Free Time
There's no better way to see Rome than to dive right in, which is what you'll do when you meet your Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour that begins in the Vatican City. The dome of St. Peter's Basilica looms over the expansive St. Peter's Square - the impressive backdrop for time spent learning about the world's smallest country. See Michelangelo's mournful Pietà up close and consider an Optional Experience that will reveal the artistry and heritage of the famous Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums. Continue to Ancient Rome, to view the mighty Colosseum, followed by some time to explore on your own.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 3 - Rome – Pisa – Florence (2 Nights)
Set your sights firmly on Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance and a city that has inspired poets, authors and artists for centuries. But first, a mesmerising journey through the rolling vineyards and olive groves of Tuscany awaits. Visit Pisa and its Square of Miracles, one of the most beautiful architectural complexes in the world. Yield to peer pressure and snap a few strategic photos featuring you and the extraordinary Leaning Tower of Pisa, leaning precariously. You'll have some time for souvenir shopping before continuing to Florence. This evening, there's an opportunity to head into the Tuscan Hills for dinner - an unforgettable Optional Experience.
Accommodation: Novotel Firenze Nord
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - Florence Sightseeing and Free Time
There are few cities in the world with an artistic legacy equal to that of Florence. Now's your chance to experience it in all its glory with your Local Specialist at your side. Lace up your walking shoes and view the city's most iconic sights on foot - the Baptistery, Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Giotto's Bell Tower and Ponte Vecchio. You'll visit Piazza della Signoria and witness a demonstration revealing the centuries-old Florentine trade of leatherwork, followed by some time to explore on your own. Later on, why not visit San Gimignano as part of an Optional Experience? If you're in the mood for some shopping, consider buying some of the high-quality leather goods you've just witnessed or shop for 18-carat gold jewellery. Later you'll enjoy dinner at your hotel.
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 5 - Florence – Verona – Venice (Mestre) (2 Nights)
Journey across the dramatic Apennine Mountains to Verona, the home of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers. View the vast Roman Arena, where concerts are still held several centuries after it was built to entertain the citizens of this fair city. Juliet's Balcony is a further highlight, revealing the tragic story of the Montague and Capulet family feud. Your journey continues to Venice, your home for the next two nights. Time on your own means an opportunity to explore one of the world's most romantic cities watching the busy traffic on its canals over a crisp glass of Aperol Spritz or embark on an optional gondola ride along Venice's narrow waterways. Salute!
Accommodation: Antony
Meals: Breakfast,

Day 6 - Venice Orientation and Free Time
Watch talented master craftsmen at work engaged in the same craft as their ancestors from centuries ago when you visit Giudecca Island. Witness the beautiful glass creations, that are characteristic of Venice, being made. Then cruise by private launch to St. Mark's Square, in the heart of Venice. All the main attractions are within walking distance of the Piazza so you'll have easy access to view the Byzantine Basilica of St. Mark, which you could visit as part of an Optional Experience. Spend your time getting lost in the calle of Venice or consider taking a cruise across the lagoon to the colourful Burano Island for a relaxing farewell dinner.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 7 - Depart Venice (Mestre)
Brief but jam-packed, this memorable encounter with Italy's favourite cities has been brimming with culture, history and culinary delights. We hope you tossed a coin in the Trevi Fountain to secure your speedy return to Rome, but if you didn't, you'll have a heart full of fond memories that will stay with you forever. For now, it's arriverderci, but not farewell forever as you say goodbye to your Travel Director and newfound friends before taking your transfer to Venice Marco Polo Airport. Conditions apply.
Meals: Breakfast

Lydia was awesome. We had a delightful experience. Italy is a beautiful country, with friendly people.

I so appreciate the superb organization that went into the Jewels of Italy winter tour. Every last detail was seamletess. Superb coach drivers, immaculate and very comfortable coaches, and outstanding tour guides!! Decent hotels and meals, though I found out too late I could request no salt. A steal of a deal for an overview of Italy's highlights!!!!

Our travel guide Sally was excellent! Coffee was not like USA, but we were in Italy. Food in hotels could have been better.

The trip itinerary was very detailed. From the booking to the end of my trip I was totally satisfied. It was my second trip, but I think I will book my future trips again. The trip director and all local guides were very knowledgeable and had great sense of humor, never boring. The optional excursions were excellent.

If you want to see the most of Rome, Pisa, Florence, Verona and Venice in a short period of time, than this trip is for you. We found that going to Rome first was an exciting experience but romantic and relaxing in the end for us in Venice. Also, our hotel was only 10 minutes from Venice airport which made it convenient for us at the end of our trip. Last, we recommend doing most of the optional excursions as they were very well organized, informative and most importantly allowed us to bypass the characteristically long lines associated with entering historical sites!

Novotel Hotel was disappointing.

Our tour director Gianmarco was enthusiastic, informative and engaging. If I could pick him as my personal tour director to with me as I travel the world I would. The locations and sites were awe inspiring, but Gianmarco made this a very memorable experience. One I will cherish for a long time.

The hotels were not what I expected, the hotel in Venice or Verona is too old, and Outdated, and the included meals were not that good. Sightseeing in Rome was minimal. We had to purchase additional activities to be able to see what we wanted. We could have chosen another tour that included more activities and better hotels for the money we spent. The tour Director was great, very knowledgeable, and provided excellent customer service.

The trip was awesome and our guide, Lydia, treated us like her own family (that she likes) and was incredibly knowledgeable about Italy!

The hotel was far out from main area. This was not mentioned in the brochure. Too many expensive optional side trips that should have been included.

Excellent trip, excellent tour guide and excellent accommodation.

Not knowing what budget tour entailed, we were very pleased with the program. This was our first European tour and we were very pleased with the excursion options and most importantly the tour Director the local specialists and our driver - they are a group of professional individuals who loved their jobs. Their passion for what they do was very transparent. They made the tour fun and we got to know our fellow travelers Suggestions: I was not made aware that three of us would share the hotel room- would have liked to known that. Seat arrangement coming back from Venice and Frankfurt was not available until 24 hours before departure which was not a comfortable situation- I do not like to worry about seat arrangement - I spoke with the travel specialist before the departure and he indicated there was not much he can do and it was out of his hands.

I've always used Cosmos, this time I did Trafalgar and the only problem was their Cost Saver was the extra excursions were much more that Cosmos.

The first two hotels were not up to the claimed standard in the information. Both were hotels were outside the center all city areas, this was not clear on the provided information.

We felt like more explanation of what was included should have been stated. As we are not wine drinkers, a little less emphasis on wine would have been nice and selections to those who don't drink. It would have been nice for everyone to introduce themselves at the meet and greet on the first day s0 we could get to know everyone and where they were from. Out of 42 tourist, we still didn't know everyone and did our best to introduce ourselves to everyone.

This was a trip of a lifetime. I had an amazing time. The tour guide made the experience all the better. He was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and VERY funny!! I met lifelong friends and have memories forever. I can\'t wait to book my next trip with Trafalgar! THANK YOU!
