Florence to Venice

Say “arriverderci” to Florence, before professing your love in Romeo & Juliet’s home of Verona. Next up: the canals & gondolas of Venice.

{tab Day 7}


Known as the “floating city”, Venice is packed with character, crammed with hidden lanes & linked by a network of canals. The group travels on our private boat through the waters of the lagoon to visit the city’s historical heart. The limestone Bridge of Sighs, the Gothic arches of the Doge’s Palace & the expanse of St. Mark’s Square (pigeons & all!) show off Venice’s unique beauty & way of life. Take some time to explore the floating city & lose yourself in the backstreets. There’s an optional walking tour where you can discover the labyrinth of interweaving lanes, waterways, palaces, piazzi & markets with our Local Guide.

It's a great journey by train along the coast, giving you the chance to take in the unique atmosphere. Watch the locals fishing along the shore, rub shoulders with the rich in famous in Portovenere & check out picture-postcard town of Monterosso.

The Riviera to Rome

This morning, there’s free time in Pisa & some fun photo-ops of its most famous monument, the Leaning Tower. Later, we head back to the 'Eternal City' of Rome. This city oozes energy & overflows with relics from another age which you'll encounter at almost every corner. Our special access coach tour gets you right into the thriving atmosphere of this living timeline as your Trip Manager shows you the Colosseum & Piazza Venezia. Continue on foot to check out the Pantheon & Piazza Navona. Honour tradition at the Trevi Fountain & throw a coin in the fountain’s waters (it’s meant to improve your chances of returning to Rome!) or maybe hang out with your new friends at the Spanish Steps, sit back with a few slices of pizza and people watch.

Take off into the city & absorb the atmosphere, as Vespas flash past timeworn monuments that are surrounded by fountains, pizzerias, cafés & bars. In your free time, live the local lifestyle by indulging in a long lunch on a paved piazza or knock back a shot of espresso at the bar, like the Romans do. Before you hit the shops, let your Trip Manager point you in the right direction with some tips on the best buys. Make your last night on tour special by hooking up with your friends for an optional dinner. In a typical Roman restaurant, you’ll enjoy an authentic Italian experience, complete with an opera singer, live music & pasta.
