Suggested Duration

9 Days

Escape from the crowd and explore a new perspective during your 9-day Italy tour of Cinque Terre, Lake Garda, and Venice. The trails of the Italian Riviera hide beneath lush oak forest as medieval castles overlook the cobalt waters of a glassy lake and the historical neighborhoods of Venice remain frozen in time. You will travel the shorelines, lakeshores, and canal banks for a luxurious, custom-tailored Italian experience.
