2023 Tour Details

Your dream of visiting the shining cities of Italy with budget travel in mind can easily come true. With seven days to see the sights from Rome to Venice—including Pisa, Verona, and Florence—your guided Italy tour is waiting. Majestic Rome, with its historical sites beyond compare, is your first discovery on this affordable Italy vacation. From St. Peter’s Square at the heart of the Vatican to the Colosseum, you’ll see why this “eternal city” is a must-see on every travel bucket list. From Rome, your escorted Italy tour takes you to Pisa and Florence through a gentle landscape of exquisite vineyards, olive groves, and the rolling hills of Tuscany. In Pisa, visit the Square of Miracles and see the famed leaning tower before heading to Florence— “Cradle of the Renaissance.” Take a guided walking tour of Florence to soak up the world-famous squares and palazzos of the ornate city, including the Duomo and the Baptistery’s bronze door (“Gate of Paradise”). Off to Venice, stop in Verona—the setting for Shakespeare’s fabled tragedy of Romeo & Juliet. See the ancient Roman Arena, which today is the home of the summer Opera Festival. From Verona, continue to romantic Venice, the city of unparalleled beauty. Take a boat to St. Mark’s square and gaze upon the canals with their gondolas and bridges. You can visit an original glassblowing workshop, discover the calli (narrow alleyways of Venice) and admire the exquisite palaces at your leisure for the perfect end to your inspiring Italy tour.

Although I initially escorted European Panoramas tours, nowadays I specialize in Italian tours.
