We help you plan your trip
Indulge in the sights and tastes of Italy
On a tour that stimulates all the senses, begin in Venice and fill up on sublime architecture as you enjoy a gondola ride through “The Floating City.” On the west coast, enter the city of Lucca and enjoy a stroll along medieval walls after a Tuscan wine tasting tour full of Chianti. Florence is next and more than lives up to its Renaissance hype—Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Masaccio, to name but a few, are here. Step back in the past as you enter Rome, and then move forward to the Bay of Naples and bask in rugged coastal beauty—just make sure you bring your appetite, food of the divine kind, is everywhere.
Taste of Italy
pp excl. flightsPlan your trip
Begin in Venice and travel by gondola beneath the Bridge of Sighs towards the sublime Italo-Byzantine stylings of St. Mark’s Basilica in Piazza San Marco—a boat ride of a lifetime. In the “City of Canals” expression flows like water toward divine creations such as Doge’s Palace, a Venetian Gothic structure that’s just beautiful. Indulge in mussels, clams, and shrimp, or perhaps a classic dish of risotto served with a glass of prosecco, as the sun sets over a floating city.
Drive from Italy’s east to the west coast and Lucca, a Tuscan city near the glowing Ligurian Sea. Begin your day walking medieval walls before ascending the Torre delle Ore, a 14th-century clock tower that provides views of a square that was once a Roman amphitheater. A wine tasting tour by bike is a perfect afternoon spent in the Tuscan countryside, a place where hills roll on for days, and cypress trees flourish.
The cultural hits keep on coming as you arrive in Florence, a city where an apprentice by the name of Leonardo Da Vinci helped to shape a Renaissance of the arts. The Uffizi Museum exhibits Botticelli’s superb The Birth of Venus—works by Michelangelo and Raphael also hang here. Hungry for more? Then Florence has you covered. Take pause in a piazza and gaze lovingly at the rich architecture as a waiter serves you Antipasto Toscano after an aperitivo of Tignanello wine—simply delicious.
Rome: the “Eternal City” and birthplace of an empire. Enter its historic past and stand where gladiators once fought at a Colosseum built between 70-80 AD. Sip an espresso or glass of wine before standing beneath the Sistine Chapel in awe of Michelangelo’s work. In Italy’s inspired capital, visit the baroque masterpiece that is the Trevi Fountain in the evening after Suppli, a ball of rice with dripping mozzarella.
End your vacation in Sorrento, a coastal town set on craggy cliffs by the Bay of Naples. Lemon and orange groves add to a rustic charm where Limoncello, a liquor made from lemons, is the perfect sundowner after a day walking the alleys of Old Sorrento. The 8th century Cloisters of San Francisco is a romantic monastery with a beautiful garden. By a marina, as the sun dips away, enjoy Spaghetti e Vongole and a bottle of red, you deserve it.
