Detailed Description

Rome has the Colosseum, and Venice has gondolas. Milan has the Last Supper, and Florence has David. Each Italian city contains an iconic image filled with enchantment and exoticism, beckoning you to experience the majesty of history set in modern luxury on this Italian vacation of a lifetime. Follow in the footsteps of Roman emperors and window shop in a fashion capital. Sip local wine with a terrace view of lush rolling hills and relish a calming gondola ride during sunset. Italy is more than just romance or fashion, history or opulence, but is instead all of the above.

The journey begins with your arrival in Venice, the city of canals, and Carnival. Your private transfer meets you at the airport and escorts you across the waterway to your luxurious accommodation in the heart of the city. You have two full days to discover the joys of Venice, whether on your own or on a private tour. Explore the Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Square, cruise the canals on a gondola, and venture to the island of Murano to see how the famed Murano glass is made.

After Venice, your private transfer takes you to the central train station where you travel to the glamorous city of Milan. The remainder of the day is at your whim, showcasing the elegant Gothic cathedral and the city's chic ambiance. The following day is yours to discover the splendor of Milan, whether seeing da Vinci's Last Supper or heading into the Italian Alps to linger on the shores of a classic noble getaway at Lake Como.

Your private guide takes you to the train station, where you begin to make your way south to Florence. The Renaissance city brims with tremendous architecture filled with priceless artwork. Explore the city on a guided Segway tour through the historic city center. You make your way into the Tuscan hillsides outside of Florence to visit the stunning medieval towns of Siena, San Gimignano, and Chianti. Continue to Pisa to see the world-famous Leaning Tower.

Then, continue south to Rome, where your private transfer meets you at the train station and takes you to your comfortable hotel in the heart of the old city. Rome is yours for two full days, allowing you the time to take in the exquisite Vatican Museum and discover the immensity of the Roman ruins, such as the Colosseum and Roman Forum. You could even take a tour to Pompeii or the island of Capri located in the Bay of Naples. On your final morning in Italy, your private transfer meets you at the hotel and escorts you to Rome Fiumicino International Airport for your flight home.
