Itinerary

Rome

Monday. Welcome to Italy! Arrive into Rome airport where you will be met and transferred to the start hotel. Spend the remainder of the day at leisure exploring the capital. This evening at 19:00 meet the tour leader and other members of the group for a welcome meal.

Rome city tour

Step back in time this morning as we follow in the footsteps of the Romans on a guided tour of Italy's historic capital. Our first stop is the Roman Forum, the former religious, political and commercial centre of ancient Rome. Continue to the legendary Colosseum, where gladiators would battle to the death for glory. Visit the Pantheon, the best-preserved Roman building in the city. The afternoon is free for you to independently explore or visit other famous sites such as the Spanish Steps and the romantic Trevi Fountain. Perhaps make your way to the Vatican, home to the Pope and the spectacular Sistine Chapel.

San Gimignano wine tasting

Rome - San Gimignano - Florence. We leave the capital behind today and make our way north to the little town of San Gimignano, nestled in the Tuscan Hills overlooking the Chianti region. We visit a local vineyard to sample some delicious Chianti wine and explore this picturesque town, which is famous for its medieval towers. Our journey continues to Florence, Tuscany’s Renaissance capital. The remainder of the afternoon is at leisure to explore this fascinating city.

Florence sightseeing

Our day begins with a walking tour through Florence’s cobbled streets to discover the extraordinary architecture, wonderful sculptures and world-class museums. Strolling through the historical centre, we'll take in highlights such as the Duomo, standing tall over the city with its striking red dome and beautiful bell tower. See the Palazzo Vecchio in Piazza della Signoria and the beautiful Ponte Vecchio with its ancient gold shops. 
 
The afternoon is free to continue exploring Florence at leisure. Head to the famous Galleria Del Accademia, home to Michelangelo's most famous sculpture 'David', visit the vast Uffizi Gallery or walk to the Piazzale Michelangelo which offers stunning panoramic views of the city. Alternatively, sit back and sip on some local wine or feast on mouth-watering Tuscan cuisine.

Leaning Tower of Pisa & Lucca

Florence - Pisa - Montecatini. This morning finds us travelling to the famous Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa to take photos of the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa. We then have some free time to enjoy lunch and walk around the city. This afternoon we continue to the charming Tuscan city of Lucca, located on the Serchio River and surrounded by its original Renaissance walls. Here we have some time to walk along the city walls or sip on a glass of Lucchesi wine in one of the lovely bars. We continue to Montecatini, home to Italy’s pristine spas famous for their curative powers, and our base for the next two nights.

Cinque Terre day tour

Today we set our sights on exploring the five captivating, pastel hued fishing villages of Cinque Terre, which cling to the rugged Italian Riviera coastline. We explore the villages of Monterosso, Riomaggiore, Vernazza, Corniglia and Manarola at leisure using our Cinque Terre pass which allows us to travel between each village on the quaint 19th century railway, as cars have been banned for over 10 years. For those looking to enjoy spectacular views, we recommend walking along one of the scenic coastal trails. This evening we enjoy dinner together at our hotel in Montecatini.

Venice walking tour

Montecatini - Venice. Bidding farewell to our tour leader this morning, transfer to Florence train station for an unescorted express train journey from Florence to Venice. Upon arrival at Venice train station make your way to the hotel which is just a two minute walk from the station. 
 
This afternoon take in the delights of Venice on a walking tour with a local guide. Marvel at the glorious Venetian architecture, as you wander along the waterways and down the winding narrow streets of the island.
