11-Day Italian Treasures

May 3 - 14, 2023 • Roundtrip Rome • 10 Breakfasts/4 Dinners



Roman ruins, medieval towns, floating cities and gastronomic delights. All of these treasures and more are right here on this sparkling tour of Italy. Filled with the country’s famous jewels and hidden gems, this dazzling tour leads you from Rome to Venice and back again, with time in the sultry Italian Riviera, vineyard-dotted Tuscany, and neighbouring picturesque Umbria, Tuscany’s “gentler sister".

Savour a boat ride along the dramatic Cinque Terre coastline with its pastel-coloured fishing villages, stroll through the serene streets of Assisi, and sip Chianti in a Tuscan cantina. Michelangelo’s David, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the perfectly preserved medieval town of San Gimignano are more reasons this tour of Italy truly shines.
