On guided sightseeing tours, you’ll visit the must-see sights—including those that will delight history fans—such as Lucerne’s Chapel Bridge, built in the 14th century as part of the city’s fortifications and now Europe’s oldest-preserved wooden bridge; Pisa’s famous Leaning Tower; Rome’s Colosseum and Roman Forum, dating back to the Roman Empire; Assisi’s Basilica, dating to the 1200s; Pompeii, where you’ll see what life was like during the Roman Empire before Mount Vesuvius destroyed and preserved the town in 79 AD; and much more.
