Buon Giorno!

Home to the greatest classical art, most sought-after fashions and globally adored food, Italy is a dream destination. Boasting never-ending ancient ruins, gothic structures, Byzantine temples and medieval castles, Italy pays homage to significant historic periods such as the Roman Empire and the Renaissance. When it comes to beloved Italian cuisine, from authentic pizza to mouth-watering desserts, the specialty dishes of each region will delight you. Featuring some of the most romantic cities on earth including Rome, Florence and Venice, Italy has it all.

Rome

Italy’s capital, Rome, offers a wealth of history. On a holiday in Rome, you can admire St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s miraculous Sistine Chapel or cross the Tiber River to the Forum and Circus Maximus, where chariot races once roared. Here, gaze upon the mighty Colosseum where you can relive the stories of the gladiators!

Venice

In magical Venice, savour the sights and sounds of St. Mark’s Square before floating under the Bridge of Sighs and past the Doge’s Palace on a gondola ride along the Grand Canal to the Rialto Bridge. Over the Rialto, visit the lively fish market, which has existed for centuries and perfectly fits the intense rustic charm of the ‘sinking’ city of Venice.

Florence

In pretty Florence, explore the Duomo, Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Baptistery, Signoria Square and the statue of David.

  • Superb hotel accommodation with all hotel service charges & tips, baggage handling fees & local taxes

  • Luxury air-conditioned coach with reclining seats & washroom on board
