Trip Summary
1 nights in Naples

The proximity of the city of Naples (Napoli) to the Vesuvius gives its inhabitants a certain edge. Its reputation as the most vibrant city in Italy can be a double-edged sword, explaining why some tourists like it and some hate it outright. Nonetheless, the charm of Naples resides in its narrow streets with numerous ancient churches, street markets, cafés, bars and restaurants, all leading to a cacophony of sounds and images embodying the spirit of the Italian South.


2 nights in Sorrento

The best-know town on the Neapolitan Riviera is Sorrento, which is situated in a stunning location, on a long cliff amid lemon and olive groves overlooking the sea. Sorrento offers charming cobblestone streets, alluring lungomare (seafront promenade), colorful and fragrant flowers, matchless vistas, and lively cultural scene. The old town still retains its Roman grid of narrow streets and its centro storico are alive with cafes, clubs, and restaurants, which become positively crowded during the sweet nights of summer. A ravine divides the town with the pretty old town on one side and the suburban area with hotels on the other. Emperor Augustus and his successor, Tiberius, were two of Sorrento`s early devotees. In later years, the town became a favorite destination for artists and writers, as well as tourists.

Sorrento offers seaside splendor coupled with easy access to other points of interest: to the west, the best of the peninsula`s unspoiled countryside and, beyond that, the Amalfi Coast; to the north, Pompeii and the archaeological sites; off-shore, the fabled island of Capri. There are hamlets in the hills that should be explored, too. These time-worn villages maintain their traditions and their charm. Visit Vico Equense, which is dwarfed by the Lattari Mountains that rise up behind it, the village of Seiano, the white-washed town of Priora and Sant`Agata sui Due Golfi, high in the hills. Up here you`ll find natural beauty, hiking trails, tranquility and clean, dry air. The park of the Villa Communale offers a fantastic view across the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Also found nearby are the most famous villas of the Roman Age are Agrippa Postumo`s villa with a water lily fishpond, and artificial wharfs; the villa at Capo di Sorrento (known as Queen Giovanna`s baths); the villa at Punta of Massa; and the villa at Punta della Campanella. Sorrento marks the start of the 43-mile infamously winding coastal road that runs to Salerno.

Distances: Naples - 31 miles, Amalfi - 20 miles


2 nights in Rome

Rome is Italy's treasure, packed with masterpieces from more than two millennia of artistic achievement. Modern Rome has one foot in the past, one in the present. Find a cafe at summer twilight and watch the shades of pink turn to gold and copper before night finally falls. That's when another Rome comes alive; restaurants and cafes grow more animated and after dinner you can have a gelato (or an espresso in winter) or stroll by the fountains or through Piazza Navona, and the night is yours.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Roman Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican, Pantheon, Capitoline Museums, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Ancient Appian Way, Borghese Gallery and so much more!


1 nights in Siena

Siena is a city of brick, where urban development all but ceased after the great plague of the 14th century, busy as it was defending itself. Today, Siena is one of the largest Tuscan cities to maintain a distinctively medieval atmosphere and a great place to discover Tuscany at its medieval best, with numerous gothic palaces, pastry shops, and unequaled altarpieces.


2 nights in Florence

Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is one of Italy`s most atmospheric and pleasant, retaining a strong resemblance to the small late-medieval center that contributed so much to the cultural and political development of Europe. Art treasures Michelangelo`s David Botticelli`s Birth of Venus, and Raphael's La Velata draw millions of visitors every year. Throw into the mix fabulous architecture (the Duomo with Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's campanile, Santa Croce), fine restaurants and earthy trattorie, plus leading designer boutiques and bustling outdoor markets, and the city of the Renaissance becomes quite simply one of the world`s must-see sights.

Recommended Stay: At least 2 nights
Must See`s:
The Duomo Complex, Church of Santa Croce, The Cathedral, The Uffizi Gallery, Galleria dell`Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens and so much more!


1 nights in Bologna

Bologna is one of the most overlooked gems in Italy, one of the most architecturally unified in Europe - a panorama of sienna-colored buildings, marbled sidewalks, and porticos. Located at the crossroads between Venice and Florence and surrounded by hills, Bologna provides the best of several worlds; it has beautiful piazzas, churches and museums, as well as being a thriving university town, filled with cafes, bars and nightlife. The bars, cafes, and squares fill up with students, and an eclectic mix of concerts, art exhibits, and avant-garde ballet and theater performances always marks the calendar.


2 nights in Venice

With sumptuous palaces and romantic waterways, Venice is straight out of an 18th-century Canaletto masterpiece. No matter how many times you have seen it in movies or TV commercials, the real thing is more surreal and dreamlike than you ever imagined. Its landmarks, the Basilica di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale are exotic mélanges of Byzantine, Gothic, and Renaissance styles. It is full of secrets, ineffably romantic, and - at times - given over entirely to pleasure. You must walk everywhere in Venice and where you cannot walk, you go by water.


Recommended Stay: 2 nights
Must See`s:
Basilica of San Marco, St. Mark`s Square, The Doge`s Palace, Accademia gallery, Peggy Guggenheim Collection , The Rialto Bridge, Murano, Burano and Torcello Islands and so much more!


1 nights in Verona

The city of Verona in the province of Veneto, Northern Italy, rivals Venice in terms of magic and romance. Visitors turn here in numbers, making this town the most visited of the province after Venice. Aside from Romeo and Juliet's strong pull, Verona is a charming medieval and Renaissance city, with numerous medieval palazzi, churches, towers, and centuries-old piazzas. Among other objectives of interest are the Roman amphitheatre (the third largest in Italy), Arco dei Gavi, Basilica of San Zeno.


2 nights in Milan

Milan is Italy`s window on Europe, its most sophisticated and high-tech metropolis. La Scala, its landmark, is one of Europe's most prestigious opera houses. In addition, it's the site of several world-renowned annual trade fairs. Milan is one of Europe's top shopping cities, with an incredible concentration of sophisticated, high style boutiques - and that's only fitting because Milan is the dynamo of the Italian fashion industry. Dolce & Gabbana, Ferré, Krizia, Moschino, Prada, Armani, and Versace have all catapulted to international stardom from design studios based here. Inevitably, shopping is of almost religious significance.

Recommended Stay: 2 nights

Must See`s:
The Last Supper by Michelangelo, The Duomo, Pinacoteca di Brera, Quadrilatero d'Oro, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Scala museum and theatre, Piazza Fontana. Arco della Pace, the churches of Santa Maria delle Grazie and San Lorenzo, Corso Venezia and Piazza San Babila and Sforzesco Castle.

Package Map Picture
Italy

For centuries, Italy has drawn foreign visitors, mostly for its architectural, artistic and scenic splendors. Italy can truly be all things to all people. For some the Italian experience is full of passion and excitement, urbanity, crowds and noise. For others it is a quiet rural idyll where the traditional life can be experienced. Its great cities are replete with fantastic works of art ranging from the Roman times to the Renaissance. Even then, many visitors will forego the rich attractions of culture in favor of some of the most unspoilt beaches and spectacular mountains in the world.
