Trip Summary
3 nights in Rome

Rome is undeniably stunning, from its rich ancient culture, must try pizzas and coffees or just experiencing a touch of Europe. This city is packed full of sights, with thousands of years of history layered upon itself - you`ll find everything here from Roman ruins to Renaissance art. It`s also home to fantastic food, the Vatican City and sights galore!


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Explore the Roman Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine; Discover the Vatican, the smallest independent state in the world; Throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain; Marvel at the Pantheon; Sit on the Spanish Steps; Wander the Piazzas; Eat the best Gelato in Rome; Climb Palatine Hill; Walk the Ancient Appian Way; Go to the Vatican Museums and so much more!



1 nights in Siena

The beautiful town of Siena is the largest of hill towns that are scattered among Tuscany. The city is famous for its large square, Piazza Del Campo, winding medieval alleyways, and the Palio, a historic horse race that takes place twice during the summer months. Today, Siena continues to maintain a distinctively medieval atmosphere and is a great place to discover Tuscany at its medieval best, with numerous gothic palaces, pastry shops and unequaled altarpieces.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta; Piazza del Campo; Palazzo Pubblico; Torre del Mangia; Biblioteca Piccolomini; Siena National Gallery; Church of San Domenico; Piazza Salimbeni; Porta Pispini; Siena Civic Museum and so much more!



2 nights in Florence

Art, culture, food and wine, Florence has it all! A city rich in beauty, it is a wondrous collection of buildings, paintings and sculptures, leading some to say by simply walking its streets Florence is an open museum to all who visit. Known as the birthplace of the Renaissance, when a period of great wealth and collection of art took place (between 14th to 17th centuries), today Florence has almost 70 museums to explore not including its many churches full of artistic treasures too. This is truly 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.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Piazza Maggiore, Saint Petronius Church, Neptune Fountain, Santo Stefano Church, Archaeological Museum, National Gallery, Piazza del Mercato (or market square), Quadrilatero, San Luca Sanctuary, Palazzo Comunale Museum, Museum of History and so much more!



1 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'` 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: 3 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.




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.



1 nights in Padua (Padova)

A former Roman settlement, Padua's importance grew during the 13th and 16th centuries when it had become the second biggest university city in Europe. Dante and Copernicus studied here, Petrarch and Galileo taught here. It has a picturesque atmosphere. "Basilica di Sant'Antonio" with the grave of "Sant'Antonio" is the most important attraction. Here one can also admire works by medieval and renaissance artists, such as Giotto. The Prato della Valle, the biggest square in Europe is worth a visit.



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:
People-watch at Piazza San Marco, Stroll Across the Rialto Bridge, Get Lost in the Endless Canals, Admire the Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, Visit the San Giorgio dei Greci, Walk Around the Jewish Ghetto, Learn About Venice`s Musical History, Tour Venice`s Unique Architecture at Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Celebrate One of Venice'` Many Festivals, Go Window Shopping, and so much more!
