Day 04
Rome

Venice - Rome

Hotel: Holiday Inn Roma Fiano / BW Park Hotel Roma Nord or similar

Spend the morning in the company of a knowledgeable local guide as you explore Venice, the most magical of cities. Begin with a waterbus ride to San Marco Island, a memorable crossing of the lagoon that gives you a real taste of the city’s charm as you approach the dreamy spires and distinctive waterside buildings. Once on the island you’ll be led around some of Venice’s best-known locations, beginning in the Piazzo with the Basilica di San Marco, a stunning piece of Byzantine architecture.

You’ll also see the legendary Bridge of Sighs, which appears on many a postcard or picture of Venice and connects the old prison to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace.

Afterwards you’ll have a chance to see some traditional Venetian craftwork at close quarters with a demonstration by Murano glassblowers; their exquisite creations make excellent souvenirs. Of course, the ultimate Venice activity is to ride through the warren of waterways on a gondola, and for most people this optional excursion is a must. Step aboard, relax and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Transfer to Rome in the afternoon.

Day 05
Arezzo

Rome - Vatican City - Arezzo

Hotel: Etrusco Arezzo Hotel / Arezzo Park Hotel or similar

Your day in Rome starts with a visit to the smallest country in the world, The Vatican City, which lies at the heart of the Italian capital. Here you’ll marvel at St Peter’s Basilica, home to Pope Francis and arguably the most significant site in Christianity. The exquisitely beautiful Basilica has been present here for almost 1,700 years and contains a bewildering collection of paintings, frescoes and design crafted by some of humanity’s most famous artists, which you can explore. Alternatively, you can choose to add on the optional Sistine Chapel tour to view Michelangelo’s famous painted ceiling.

Next you’ll see the famous Trevi Fountain, the lavish Baroque showpiece where people flock to throw coins into the water – an action which is said to ensure that you’ll return to the city again one day. After lunch, take a step even further back in time as you visit Italy’s unrivalled Roman relics. An optional guided tour of the Coliseum, built in AD 72, is highly recommended. History comes to life as you imagine yourself witnessing gladiatorial combat inside the spectacular amphitheatre, or alternatively you can walk at your leisure around the outside to admire the facade of this ancient wonder.

After the Coliseum, get up close to the nearby Arch of Constantine, which dates back to the fourth century AD, then spend some further free time enjoying Rome, sampling the rich and creamy delights of “gelato” (Italian ice cream). Next, you can visit the magnificent Basilique Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri near Piazza della Repubblica before transferring to Arezzo in the late evening.

To begin the day by you’ll enjoy a guided walk around Florence’s many highlights, including the Ponte Vecchio over the Arno, the Piazza del Duomo and Campanile Tower.

Next you can see a demonstration of the traditional craft of leather working at close quarters in a local workshop, and you’ll also have the opportunity to purchase some of the high-quality leather items for which the city is famous.

You’ll pass the Uffizi Gallery, which contains one of the most notable art collections in Florence. You’ll have free time to see the city further, to shop or to watch the world go by from an alfresco cafe, before travelling on to your next destination, Pisa.

Here, be sure to have your camera ready to get a shot of the iconic Leaning Tower, the famous bell tower in the ‘Square of Miracles’, which also contains the centuries-old Cathedral and Baptistery.

      The hotels were extremely poor. I understand your need to save costs, but even with that, some research in hotel selections by your agency is warranted. In each hotel we were given twin beds instead of queen bed. Most of them did not even h...ave a kettle. Travelling in a cold climate, I wanted to drink warm water and it did not make sense to go down to reception asking again n again. They were far from main cities with limited food options. At the Campanile Bobigny, the staff did not even allow us to take empty plates to our room. That is simply disgusting customer service. In Lucerne, we were given only 1.5 hours leisure time after travelling for 9 hours. How is that logical? The hotel should have been nearby so that we could have travelled on our own later at night. The cities were so beautiful but your choice of hotels spoiled the entire trip. It is unlikely that I will recommend this particular trip to friends. In case you have better trip with good accommodations, please do advise and I will consider again. Read full review

      The only gripe that I have, is with the hotel amenities. The first is, some showers were simply a trickle on full trotle, and lastly a more harmful treat, sudden cut-in and cut-out of cold or very hot water as though the mixture you adjuste...d suddenly don't work anymore. Read full review
