You’ll also spend one night on a ferry-crossing of the Adriatic Sea from Ancona, Italy to Patras, Greece.Visit Rome with a local guide who brings ancient Imperial Rome back to life as you pass the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Enjoy must-see sights, including Piazza Signoria, in the center of Florence; Juliet’s balcony in the medieval town of Verona; the byzantine mosaics in medieval Ravenna – a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and Pisa’s famous Leaning Tower.
