Detailed Description

Discover Italy on this 8-day tour through Venice, Florence and Rome that brings you to antiquity and back, through the Venetian Empire to the Roman Empire, and to where the Renaissance always shines. From the Spanish Steps in Rome to the Doge’s Palace in Venice, the celebrated dome of Florence’s Duomo to the city’s incredible collection of art in the Uffizi Gallery, you will discover never ending splendor housed within historic buildings or along legendary streets. There is more than just history and art, architecture and culture, a country where modern luxury meets renowned luster and you are there to witness it all.

Your discovery begins within the fantastic city of Venice, located on the lagoon in wondrous affluence. The buildings rise just above the waterline as you venture into the city and settle in to the comforts of Palazzo Sant’Angelo. The following day you will be guided through the city on a fabulous tour that will take you through the opulent Byzantine church of Saint Mark’s Basilica, and the almost unparalleled luxuriance of Doge’s Palace. The following day you will be taken to the train station where you will make your way to the wondrous city of Florence.

Your Italian discovery continues in Florence where you can reside in the grand Hotel Rapallo or the luxurious Palazzo Ruspoli Bed and Breakfast, both equal in comfort and brilliance. The city is elegant and compact, expansive and energetic, where there is always more majesty to experience. A tour will take you through the breathtaking art of the Uffizi Gallery where you can see the works of Michelangelo and Botticelli, and so much more.

In Rome you will settle in the Hotel Caravita or the Hotel Mario dei Fiori, 37, both offering central magnificence and relaxation. The Vatican Museum will showcase the absorbing and exorbitant past that encompasses over a millennium. The Sistine Chapel sits at the edge of the tour like a remarkable ending to a grandiose exploration.

Your discovery will come to an end in Rome where you will be taken to the airport to catch your flight home. There will always be more to see, more to do, and more to discover in Italy when you return for more.
