This is a comprehensive tour through Italy, showcasing some of Italy’s most famous cities (including Rome, Florence, Venice, and Naples), historic sights, small towns, and scenic areas. You’ll start and end in Rome with overnights along the way in the Tuscan Hills, Venice area, San Marino (one of the world’s smallest countries), the Assisi area, and Naples. Enjoy four nights in the heart of Tuscany, famous for its medieval villages, hillside towns, and Chianti wine-growing region. From here, take excursions to Greve, where you’ll visit a renowned Chianti wine estate and indulge in a typical Tuscan lunch; Pisa, with its world-famous Leaning Tower; and Florence, where your walking tour features most of the city’s must-see sights, including Piazza Signoria, the center of Florence’s political life since the 14th century. Spend three nights in Naples and take excursions to Capri, with is crystal-blue water, legendary piazzetta, and fashionable boutiques; Sorrento, a laid-back town with amazing views of the azure seas and cobblestone streets lined with shops and restaurants; and Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into ordinary life at the peak of the Roman Empire. This Italy tour also visits Orvieto—situated high atop a volcanic rock—to visit the gothic cathedral; Ravenna, with its Byzantine mosaics dating from the 5th century AD; Urbino, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has preserved its Renaissance appearance; Gubbio, dating to the 14th century; Assisi, where you’ll visit the Basilica of St. Francis that houses the tomb of St. Francis; and Montecassino, where you’ll visit the Benedictine Abbey dating to the 6th century. From the small, historic towns to the vibrant cities, this Italy tour for value-minded travelers has it all!
