Description

This exuberant celebration of Italys cultural icons, rural splendour and sensual delights is, like the country itself, nothing short of extraordinary. It includes three nights in Venice, to appreciate this most romantic city of piazzas and canals; three nights in Florence to discover the sublime architecture and picture-perfect countryside of Tuscany; and three nights in the Eternal City of Rome, where ancient wonders, world-class museums and boutique shopping streets vie for attention. Excursions off the beaten track, to Bologna, Assisi and the Vatican City complete an unforgettable picture.
