Overview

Operated by ?

Your dream of visiting the shining cities of Italy with budget travel in mind is easy to reach. 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, you’ll see why this “eternal city” is a must-see on every traveler’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 Baptistery’s bronze door (“Gate of Paradise”). Off to Venice via Verona – the setting for Shakespeare’s fabled tragedy of Romeo & Juliet. You’ll also see the ancient Roman Arena, which today is the home of the summer 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 calli, narrow alleyways of Venice and the ornate palaces at your leisure for the perfect end to your inspiring Italy tour.

Due to government travel restrictions in the Lombardy and Veneto regions of Italy, this vacation will have a modified itinerary temporarily to ensure its operation is smooth and safe. For details on any adjustments, please refer to the Travel Update & Policy page found on the home page.
