Like all famous trios, Rome, Florence, and Venice exist in a universe of perfect symmetry, three glorious cities where you can feel the whole of Italy in every glorious step. They are the cities that invented the European tour, the places that have inspired countless stories and songs, the must-see locales of any would-be global traveler. They are, without a doubt, the most famous trio in travel: and it’s time for you to experience them for yourself on this private tour of Rome, Florence and Venice.
Welcome to Italy!
Your Italy vacation begins as the morning breaks clear and crisp as you coast to the ground near the famous Seven Hills of Rome, the modern day capital of Italy. After breezing your way through customs, you’ll be taken from the airport to your chic and elegant hotel situated in the heart of this magnificent metropolis. Drop off your bags, freshen up after your flight, and maybe head down to find a local café for your first taste of Italian espresso before setting out for a glimpse of the incredible offerings of Rome.
The afternoon is yours, free to uncover the magic of this ancient and august capital: venture into the hallowed halls of the Pantheon and marvel at the oculus in the center of the beautiful dome, or walk along the famed Spanish Steps, the widest staircase in Europe made famous by Gregory Peck and Aubrey Hepburn in the classic Roman Holiday. This evening, stop by one of Rome’s famous restaurants for southern Italian comfort, including some of the best pizza on the peninsula.
