With seven days to see the sights from Rome to Venice – including Pisa, Verona, and Florence – your guided Italy tour is waiting. 

Majestic Rome, with its historical sites beyond compare, is your first discovery on your affordable Italy vacation. From St. Peter’s Square at the heart of the Vatican, to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, you’ll see why the “eternal city” is a must-see on every traveller’s list. 

From Rome, your escorted Italy tour takes you to Pisa and Florence through a gentle landscape of exquisite vineyards, olive groves, and the rolling hills of Tuscany. In Pisa, you’ll see the famed leaning tower and visit the Square of Miracles before heading to Florence – “Cradle of the Renaissance.”

Take a guided walking tour of Florence to soak up the world-famous squares and palazzos of the ornate city, including the Duomo and the Baptistry’s bronze door (“Gate of Paradise”). Off to Venice via Verona – the setting for Shakespeare’s fabled tragedy of Romeo & Juliet. 

You’ll see the ancient Roman Arena where gladiators battled – but today serves as the home of the magnificent Arena Opera Festival. From Verona, you’ll continue to romantic Venice, the city of unparalleled beauty. 

Take a boat to St. Mark’s square and gaze upon the canals with their gondolas and bridges. You can visit an original glassblowing workshop, discover the narrow alleyways of Venice’s Calli, or its ornate palaces at your leisure for the perfect end to your inspiring Italy tour.

31st May 2018
Mrs Pauline Broadhead

The actual holiday was excellent, but the brochure description could have been more accurate, the tour pace may have been easy but it did not mention that there was a lot of walking involved after the drop off points and it was very difficult for someone with limited mobility to keep up

The hotel's need to be closer to the city centre,...

9th May 2018
Mr Daniel Clarke

The hotel's need to be closer to the city centre, 5 - 10 minutes walking. Venice was inaccessible without public transport meaning you couldn't easily explore at your leisure. The first hotel was also rather small rooms and uncomfortable bed furnishings
