Italy is the most popular European country for US tourists for good reason. The romance, mouth-watering cuisine, excellent wine, fabulous art, ancient ruins, and remarkable architecture draw us to visit and experience this country’s culture.
Explore its most famous cities: Rome, Florence, and Venice. Discover the historical sights of Rome, including the Colosseum, the amphitheater used for deadly gladiatorial contests and public spectacles; the Roman Forum, the political, social, and commercial center during the Roman Empire; and the Sistine Chapel, world-famous for Michelangelo’s ceiling paintings. You’ll see ancient buildings and ruins, and you’ll be able to imagine what life was like thousands of years ago. Wander the maze of streets in Venice, and discover hidden treasures and restaurants in their back alleys. Relax at an outdoor café in Venice’s St. Mark’s Square or enjoy a romantic gondola ride through the city’s famous canals. In Florence, a highlight is the magnificent east door of the Baptistry of St. John, with the gilded bronze doors depicting scenes from the Old Testament. Visit the Uffizi or Accademia Galleries and marvel at the Statue of David and other famous pieces of artwork.
The countryside of Tuscany draws equally as many visitors as the cities. Picture the rolling landscape ripe with vineyards and olive groves. Partial to the sea? Perhaps the Amalfi Coast or Sicily would suit your desire for crashing waves and fresh seafood. Northern Italy holds culinary and shopping promise, with Milan and Cinque Terre.
Touring Italy can be done in many ways. There are escorted tour groups that allow you to pay one price and have all of your travel arrangements taken care of with a knowledgeable guide. We can plan your own tour using train transportation or a rental car. There are also cruises that stop in many of the important Italian ports and allow for you to see the major cities.
