At a glance itinerary:

Day 1

Fly direct to Venice. On arrival make your own way to your hotel where you will spend 2 nights. (Instructions on how to reach your hotel using the local water buses will be provided.)

Day 2

Venice: Don't miss St Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, the Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs.  Ride on a water bus along the Grand Canal to experience the sights and sounds of Venice’s busiest waterway.  Take any turning off one of the main thoroughfares and just lose yourself in the network of alleyways, relishing the serenity of a city devoid of cars.

Day 4

Florence: Visit the Uffizi Gallery, the Galleria dell'Accademia & the Duomo. Stroll across the Ponte Vecchio or if you prefer to take things easy head to the Boboli Gardens for some tranquil respite from the buzz of the city.

Day 6

Rome: Where better to start your Rome experience than the Colosseum, possibly the most iconic and impressive ancient monument to symbolise Rome? Continue to the Roman Forum where you can walk amongst the architectural ruins that once served as the centre of political, commercial and judicial life in ancient Rome.

Day 7

Rome: Enclave of the holy see and a separate sovereign state since 1929, visiting the Vatican City is an experience that should make it on to every Rome itinerary. Across the Tiber discover the beautifully flamboyant baroque architecture of the Trevi Fountain and the Piazza Navona.

Day 8

Join the shuttle transfer from your hotel to Rome airport for the return flight to the UK.
