    Short Description

    Live out your wildest Italian dreams on this multi-city vacation package! Start off exploring the colorful canals of Venice. Treat yourself to a gondola ride down the Grand Canal, take incredible photos from the Rialto Bridge, and feel like a local in Piazza San Marco. Discover tiny canals and picturesque hidden gems throughout this unique city. While in Venice, why not take a boat ride over to Murano or Burano? 

    Next, you'll hop on a train to Florence, the "Birthplace of the Renaissance." Roam through medieval streets and meander through local markets. See iconic sites like the Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, and more! Since Florence is an art capital of the world, you owe it to yourself to visit at least one famous museum. Check out the Uffizi Gallery or the Galleria dell'Accademia - home to Michelangelo's State of David!

    Last, but certainly not least, take a scenic train ride to the Eternal City of Rome. Travel back in time at the Colosseum and Roman Forum, toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain, and become awestruck at the sight of St. Peter's Basilica! Indulge in creamy gelato as you walk, and treat yourself to delicious meals of pizza, pasta, and other Italian classics.

    Itinerary

    Day 1 Welcome to Venice!

    Ciao! Upon arrival in Venice, check-in to your hotel. Once you get settled, head outside and explore! Weave through picturesque canals and treat yourself to a delicious first-night meal. 

    Day 2 Venice area

    Rise and shine! Recharge with a pleasant breakfast, then get ready to seize the day. Grab your camera and head to the Rialto Bridge over the Grand Canal. Why not treat yourself to a once-in-a-lifetime gondola ride?

    Sightsee around the city and be sure to visit Doge's Palace, St. Mark's Basilica, and St. Mark's Square. 

    Day 3 Venice - Florence

    Wave goodbye to Venice and enjoy a quick train ride to the "Birthplace of the Renaissance" - Florence! 

    Make your way to your hotel and settle in. Then, get lost in the beauty of this artistic city! Gasp at the sight of the Duomo and catch a gorgeous sunset from the Ponte Vecchio. 

    Day 4 Florence

    There's nothing quite like waking up in Florence. Enjoy a delicious breakfast - perhaps a cappuccino and a cornetto! 

    When you're ready to start the day, consider a climb up to the top of the Duomo or Bell Tower of Santa Maria del Fiore. Feel your eyes widen at breathtaking views of the city from up above. 

    For more great views, take a hike up to Piazzale Michelangelo. Treat yourself to refreshing gelato on the way down! 

    Day 5 Florence - Rome

    Hop on the train and get ready to take on the Eternal City! Upon arrival in Rome, check-in to your final hotel.

    Day 6 Rome

    Make sure your camera's charged - it's your first full day in Rome! 

    Spend today visiting the city's most iconic sites. Feel like you're in a real-life postcard as you stand in-front of the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, and the Spanish Steps!

    Had my first (and last!) group tour.

    Pros:
    Comfortable coach, very friendly tour guide.

    Cons:
    The hotels were consistently poor quality with either faulty AC/Heating units and iffy shower facilities (very few had hot water).

    There were an alarming number of “mandatory” stops where we were made to be quiet and pay attention to a merchant showing how they made their wares, then a sales pitch to try to get us to buy things. There was a hefty amount of shaming from the tour guide if we bought items from somewhere else.

    The included meals were often very rushed and no matter that the fault lied within the poor quality service of the restaurants chosen ahead of time by the travel agency, we were still hurried and “shamed” if we didn’t eat super fast once the meal arrived.

    Very, very little free time to explore some of the sights. This was my own fault as I should have researched more about the speed of these trips.

    One day was almost nothing but travel in the coach, from morning to night, and it definitely effected the health and well-being of many in the tour group.

    I guess I’m glad I experienced it once but I’ll go back to just solo trips from here on out.

    I have shared this deal with so many people since purchasing it. It is really an unheard of value. From the JetBlue round-trip flights to the three nights at Virgin hotels in Las Vegas we were very taken care of.
