Rome: Our exclusive multi-city vacation to Italy first takes you to the capital, where you can explore world-famous sites on our special Ancient Rome tour, which grants you access to restricted areas of the Colosseum and includes a visit to the Roman Forum, where you can learn more about the many famous characters of the Roman Empire, including Anthony and Cleopatra. After discovering Ancient Rome, we will also show you Rome’s classic attractions, known for their glorious marble sculptures and intricate architecture, including the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. As a special day trip, we will also take you to the magical Vatican City, where you will be treated to a VIP tour of the Vatican Museums, including rare access to restricted exhibits. As a finale, you will have time to enjoy the stunning Sistine Chapel – a true wonder to behold.
Pompeii & the Amalfi Coast: As a full-day trip from Rome, we will whisk you south to Pompeii, which is an ancient city close to Naples that was lost for nearly 1500 years following an ancient volcanic eruption. The city was covered in ash, which served to preserve everything in the city, from shops and mosaics to the city’s unfortunate inhabitants. Thanks to careful excavations, the city is now one of the world’s most important archeological sites and provides a rare glimpse back in time to 79 AD for those that visit. In the city, you will be able to enjoy a special two-hour tour before reflecting on the cultural sights you have seen on a driving tour of the pretty villages that line the Amalfi Coast. There will be a stop in Positano, arguably the most luxurious of the villages and a place where you can admire stunning sea views and coastal scenery that will lull you into trance-like relaxation.
Florence: Next you will venture to Florence, an Italian jewel revered by cultural experts due to its rich abundance of artistic masterpieces, statues and diverse architecture. Here you will be treated to private tours of the Uffizi and Accademia art galleries, where you can experience the magnificence of the original statue of David at the Accademia and the overwhelming art collection of the Medici Family at the Uffizi. As a once-in-a-lifetime treat, you will also have an opportunity to taste rich wines on a tour of the famous Chianti vineyards, which will also feature the glorious natural scenery that Tuscany is famous for. We are sure that the sublime scenery that you can enjoy in this part of Italy will be a highlight of your custom Italian tour!
Cinque Terre: As a full-day trip from Florence, we will treat you to an enriching tour of the Cinque Terre, which is a UNESCO-protected stretch of coastline in Liguria made up of five fishing villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. The coast is known for its natural beauty, with vibrantly colored villas that line the cliffsides, contrasting perfectly with the emerald-green sparkling sea. While on the Cinque Terre, you will be able to enjoy a tranquil boat ride, allowing you to best appreciate the unique beauty of the coastline. The boat will stop in Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Manarola and Riomaggiore so that you can explore the boutique shops or relax in a seaside cafe admiring the glistening waters of the Ligurian Sea.
Venice: Finally, we take you to the Floating City, where you will arrive at your hotel in luxury aboard a private motorboat from the train station. After settling in at your centrally located hotel, we will treat you to a private gondola ride of Venice’s most romantic canals, including the Grand Canal, allowing you to admire Venice’s unique cityscape from the water. There will be plenty of time to discover the city’s decadent architecture and luxurious attractions too and, as a part of our exclusive multi-city tour of Italy, we will pre-arrange a special guided tour of Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica so that you can learn more about this wonder of the world.
