This is a comprehensive, affordable tour of Italy, showcasing some of the world’s most beloved cities (including Rome, Florence, Venice, and Naples), historic sites, small towns, and scenic wonders. You’ll start and end in Rome focusing on Tuscany and the Naples area, but also visiting Venice, San Marino (one of the world’s smallest countries), and Assisi. Enjoy four nights in the Tuscan hills, famous for medieval villages, charming towns, and the celebrated Chianti wine-growing region. From your base, take excursions to Greve, where you’ll visit a renowned Chianti wine estate and indulge in a typical Tuscan lunch; visit Pisa, with its world-famous Leaning Tower; and stroll in Florence on your walking tour of the Renaissance city center. You’ll see Piazza Signoria – the center of political life in Florence since the 14th century. Spend three nights in Naples and take excursions to Capri, with is crystal-blue water, legendary piazzetta, and fashionable boutiques; visit Sorrento, a laid-back town with amazing views of the azure seas and cobblestone streets lined with shops and restaurants; and explore Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into ordinary life at the peak of the Roman Empire. This Italy tour also visits Orvieto—situated high atop a volcanic rock—to visit the gothic cathedral; Ravenna, with its Byzantine mosaics dating from the 5th century AD; Urbino, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has preserved its Renaissance appearance; Gubbio, dating to the 14th century; Assisi, where you’ll visit the Basilica of St. Francis that houses the tomb of St. Francis; and Montecassino, where you’ll visit the Benedictine Abbey dating to the 6th century. To top it all up, visit Rome, the “eternal city,” including a city tour showing all the main sights, from Vatican City to the Colosseum. From the small, historic towns to the vibrant cities, this affordable Italy tour for value-minded travelers has it all!
