Italy, a European country with a long Mediterranean coastline, has left a powerful mark on Western culture and cuisine. Its capital, Rome, is home to the Vatican as well as landmark art and ancient ruins. Other major cities include Florence, with Renaissance masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s "David" and Brunelleschi's Duomo; Venice, the city of canals; and Milan, Italy’s fashion capital.
Our Highlights of Italy programme covers the main cities while our Best of Italy programme brings in a dash of 'issimo' to your love affair with Italy as you explore its captivating landscape, culture and mouth watering flavours that inspired locals to coin the phrase... "First we eat, then we do everything else"... We go south visiting the romantic Isle of Capri and the stunning Amalfi coast visiting charming Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. And we don't forget Pompei.
We continue to Tuscany to see Renaissance Florence, the very famous Leaning Tower of Pisa nearby and take a day excursion to Cinque Terre... see the picturesque San Gimigano and the seas of pastel pinks, yellows and blues that cling dramatically to the Cinque Terre's Ligurian cliffs! There is enough time in Venice; there is a possibility of visiting Modena for car lovers. Finally to wrap up the tour we visit Lake Como and the fashion capital, Milan.
