Overview

The Eternal City of Rome, once the centre of the western world and with a continuous civilisation of 2,700 years, is packed with wonderful and awe  inspiring architecture and monuments from throughout the centuries. It is without doubt the most fascinating of all Italy's historical cities and there is, perhaps, more to see in Rome than in any other city in the world. The "city within a city", the Vatican, is the cradle of the Catholic Church and a visit to St. Peter's Basilica is an absolute must, along with the Colosseum and tossing a coin in the Trevi Fountain.

Florence is recognised as the art capital of the world. Built along the banks of the River Arno and surrounded by the Tuscan hills, it is here where you will find some of the finest sculptures, works of art and architecture including the magnificent Cathedral and Baptistry with its 'Gates of Paradise', Giotto's Bell Tower and the Ponte Vecchio. We have arranged a sightseeing tour of the city as soon as we arrive, conducted by a local guide, to enable you to get the most from your visit.

Venice, the Pearl of the Adriatic, is a highlight of any holiday to Italy. You can see the Bridge of Sighs, the Grand Canal, visit a Venetian Glass Factory and of course wander in St. Mark's Square. There will be time for exploring the narrow streets bursting with fabulous shops, bartering at the Rialto Market or perhaps taking a tour of the city by Gondola - the choice is yours.

Siena is often called the jewel of Tuscany and has one of Italy's greatest medieval squares, the Campo. The former maritime republic of Pisa has Italy's most recognisable monument, the incredible 'Leaning Tower of Pisa'.
