Departing from Manchester

Day 1

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.

Make your own way to the Santa Maria Novella railway station for the journey by rail to Rome where you will spend 3 nights. (Journey time is approximately 1.5 hours and there is a choice of departure times.)

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.
