Meet your Tour Director in the late afternoon for a chat about the best ways to make the most of your free time.

MILAN. 
Indulge in the Art of Aperitivo Start your day by taking advantage of our included city orientation tour by motorcoach.

Now we're on to Parma. If you are a food lover, this is the place for you! UNESCO's Creative City of Gastronomy has everything you need for an authentic Italian feast, including Parma ham and Parmigiano cheese.

Day 5

BOLOGNA. 
Bologna has three nicknames: "la dotta" (the learned one), due to its ancient university tradition, "la grassa" (the fat one), due to its opulent food tradition, and "la rossa" (the red one), thanks to the red bricks of the town centre-now also associated with the traditional colour of the Ferrari, conceived in the area. Discover which of Bologna's personalities suit you best through a choice of optional activities or exploration on your own. (B)

Day 6

BOLOGNA - MANTUA - VERONA - TREVISO. 
Mantua's centre is a World Heritage Site, and thanks to the Gonzaga family dynasty, a treasure trove of artistic masterpieces. Take a stroll inside the city walls. Then, in Verona, relax in the Piazza Bra and marvel at the Roman Arena while sipping a glass of Valpolicella or Amarone. Discover the Shakespearian connection with the medieval quarters on an optional walking tour to get acquainted with the setting for Romeo and Juliet. Continue to Treviso, a true Italian town set at the foot of the Alps. (B)
