Trip Summary
3 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!


3 nights in Southern Tuscany

The hill towns and valleys south of Siena comprise perhaps Tuscany`s most captivating and picturesque region, much of the area is filled with the expansive and beautiful Val d'Orcia (most people`s idealized picture of Tuscany). It is a land of medieval castles guarding narrow road passes, isolated farmhouses sitting atop long, eroded limestone ridges, clusters of cypress and ribbons of plane trees against a rural setting, and thermal spas dating from long times past. Most of the region has been landscaped over thousands of years, turning the low, rolling hills into farmlands and vineyards that produce Tuscany`s mightiest red wines.

Southern Tuscany`s cities are textbook Italian hill towns. This is Etruscan country, where the necropolis near Sovana hints at a rich and somewhat mysterious pre-Roman civilization, where Roman settlements like Montalcino and Montepulciano grew into medieval cities and today produce two of Italy`s top red wines, the powerhouse Brunello di Montalcino and the noble Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. And where the gemlike village of Pienza shelters within its tiny ring of walls a Renaissance core of the most perfect proportions and planning.


3 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


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.

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.
