Days 2-3 Rome
Get ready for an awe-inspiring introduction to Rome and many of its world-famous landmarks on a guided walking tour. Stroll up the photogenic Spanish Steps from the Piazza di Spagna to the church of Trinita' dei Monti. Visit the stunning Trevi Fountain so you can toss a coin into the magical waters and ensure your return visit to the Eternal City. Day three is at leisure
Day 4 Rome to Florence
Journey north through the rolling hills of Tuscany. Inspiring landscapes of cypress trees, olive groves and medieval castles lead us to the magical town of Siena. It's an open-air museum of Gothic-style architecture that thrills history buffs from across the globe. Explore narrow streets lined with palaces, delicious pastry shops and charming boutiques. Discover the splendid Piazza del Campo, and soak up the ambience of panoramic views, ancient fountains and soaring spires. This evening sit down to a mouth-watering dinner at a local restaurant in Florence.
Day 5 Florence
Explore the architectural masterpieces and world-famous art in the Italian birthplace of the Renaissance - Florence. The charming cobbled streets are perfect for a guided walking tour, taking in elegant palaces, chapels and museums bursting with works by great masters, such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Afterwards, you can choose to 'skip-the-line' on an optional, guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery to see art by Botticelli, Raphael and many more.
Day 6 Florence to Venice
Continue north to Venice, with a stop at one of Italy's most photographed sights. The Leaning Tower of Pisa once tilted at about a 10-degree angle, a quirk that appeared during its construction due to shifting soil. Travel on to your hotel in Venice. You'll love the location here, on the doorstep of award-winning beaches and Art Deco buildings of Venice Lido, home of the celebrated Venice Film Festival. Perhaps best of all, the ferry stop is right outside for a scenic, 10-minute ride to the famous St Mark's Square.
Day 7 Venice
The extraordinary floating city of Venice captivates all your senses with its intriguing canals, elaborate palaces and flamboyant history. Enjoy a walking tour with a local guide exploring the Rialto Bridge, the Doge's Palace, the Basilica di San Marco and the magnificent Grand Canal.
