Detailed Description

Begin your Italian adventure in Rome, a foundation of Western Civilization. Follow Caesar’s footprints through the Roman Forum and see the Colosseum. Tour the breathtaking Saint Peter’s Cathedral, the world’s largest church, and see the Sistine Chapel. Be sure to take in the culture, as they say: “When in Rome, do as the Romans do!” Escape from the noisy traffic and scooters on the main drags, and enjoy the discovery of hidden pedestrian streets. Soak up the sun at an outdoor cafe and stroll through the piazzas while savoring gelato. In the Italian tradition, take evening strolls down the Via del Corso for a glimpse of the beautiful people and find the latest nightspots at the Campo de’ Fiori. No matter how much you’ve traveled, Rome reminds you how to live!

Spend several days in serene Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast. Perched on a mountain along the Mediterranean coast and flourishing with lemon trees and olive groves, this sunny town offers a refreshing change of pace. From your base in Sorrento, you’ll explore the dramatic Amalfi Coast, considered by many to be the most beautiful stretch along the Mediterranean Sea. Words can’t describe the jaw-dropping scenic drive that winds around the steep mountains, offering stunning sea views at every turn. Sail away to the jet-setting island of Capri, a fabled vacation spot since ancient times when it was the summer retreat of Roman Emperor Tiberius. Unwind in the tranquil village of Positano, undisturbed by the rest of the world in its secluded position hugging the rugged coastline. Beautiful pink and whitewashed villas covered in bougainvillea cling to the hillside, and the village’s “main street” of pedestrian steps leads down to a pleasant, pristine beach.

Finally, visit charming Tuscany, rich in both culture and natural beauty. In Florence, you’ll discover a treasure trove of Renaissance art. The city is a veritable open-air museum of famous fountains, statues and people-watching. Visit the renowned Uffizi Gallery, where the list of masterpieces reads like a “who’s who” of art history. After exploring the highlights of civilization, you’ll enjoy an excursion to the rural Chianti region. Drive through green, rolling hills and past distinctive cypress trees on your way to ancient vineyards. Take in the dreamy medieval atmosphere of tiny hill towns surrounded by fortified walls and untouched by the modernity. Savor the finest Chianti red wines, which pair perfectly with the rustic Tuscan country cuisine.
