Trip Highlights

Detailed Description

Autumn in Italy could very well be its own country. Gone are the hordes of August, and what remains is a distillation of all the cultural, historical, and artistic artifacts that drew you to this brilliant nation in the first place. This a 14-day tour of Italy has been tailored to the bold traveler who wishes to acquaint themselves with what many would describe as the real Italy.

After arriving in Milan, the Lake District in the Italian Alps will provide a picturesque introduction to this season of change. The stunning peaks and glacial valleys that typify this region contain stories and secrets that are waiting to reveal themselves to you. After a brief detour to the region of Piedmont to participate in an annual truffle festival, you will make your way further to lower elevations and the birthplace of the Renaissance. In Florence, you will enjoy a crash course in Tuscan winemaking and the breathtaking artwork of masters, such as Michelangelo and Caravaggio. Your tour will conclude in the Italian capital of Rome. Whether walking the steps of Vatican City or contemplating the lives of gladiators at the Coliseum, your November arrival will ensure shorter lines and a quieter setting.

With peak season long gone, a November tour of Italy will reveal a side of the country that is seldom seen by tourists but is still very much a part of Italian life. Much of this itinerary includes seasonal festivities, and this should not discourage you from participating in additional activities that you want to experience or sites that you wish to visit.
