Then appreciate the splendour as you cruise by Palladio's San Giorgio Maggiore to St. Mark's Square. Your Tour Director will explain the glorious history of ‘La Serenissima', once one of the greatest trading centres of the world – its wealth & power is echoed by the riches of St. Mark's Basilica.

Later, on your romantic gondola serenade, glide along the atmospheric canals while musicians set the mood with traditional songs.

Follow the fertile valley of the River Po, into the peaceful landscapes of Tuscany. Continue to Pisa to see the world-famous Leaning Tower in the ‘Meadow of Miracles' & also the 11th century cathedral & baptistery. Then venture on to beautiful Florence - a treasure house of the Renaissance. On arrival, meet a Local Expert for a walking tour of the historic centre. Visit the Accademia Museum to see Michelangelo's masterpiece statue, 'David'. Admire the marble clad cathedral & baptistery, where Ghiberti's ‘Gates of Paradise' have been recreated in all their glory. Next stop is Signoria Square filled with Renaissance sculptures.

Chianti Country to Assisi & on to Rome.

Travel through the vineyards of the Chianti region this morning, past Lake Trasimeno - the Italian Peninsula’s largest lake & site of a great battle in ancient times against Hannibal & his war elephants.

With a local expert, visit the tomb of St Francis & see the beautiful frescoes by Giotto in the great basilica, before continuing along the valley of the river Tiber towards the ‘Eternal City’ of Rome.
