Your Coach Tour of Italy
You will begin and then depart in either Rome or Milan, or Venice. Italy itself will unwrap your senses in a way you will not expect. You will be entranced by the magic of Venice, with the winding canals and majestic architecture that will make you want to return again and again. In your guided Tour you will visit the Doge's Palace and stroll through St. Mark's Square, perhaps enjoy a coffee at Cafe Florian as Casanova once frequented. The Market at the Rialto Bridge will be a feast for your eyes and nose as the freshest ingredients of the day are on display.
Wherefore Art Thou Romeo?
The beautiful city of Verona will enthral you with its ambiance of romance as it is the setting for Romeo and Juliet, as Juliet's balcony is located here. Look out for Juliet's statue and she may give you luck. As you wander through the streets, you will see the Roman Arena, Piazza delle Erbe, and the Ponte Pietra. Your escorted Tour may take you to Pisa, the city known for its iconic Leaning Tower. Next to the Tower is the Baptistery, which you can tour and be astounded by the acoustics which are demonstrated daily by amateur singers. There is simply a charm of its own on the back streets of Pisa.
The bustling yet peaceful city of Florence will delight you with the picturesque Piazzas, the Arno, and the terracotta tiled Duomo. On your guided vacation, take in the sights of the Ponte Vecchio, the Basilica of Santa Croce, and the Accademia Gallery to behold the statue of David.
Rome is the most famous Italian city of all and the capital of Italy. All roads truly do lead there as do most of the tours. See the Colosseum, Forum, Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain on your guided sightseeing tour. With most tours you will be supplied with headphones so that you can hear the guide clearly.
Three Coins in a Fountain
Most tours spend a couple of nights in Rome so you will have the opportunity to see all the historical sights floodlit which brings an extra magic to your visit.
Heading south from Rome you may take the opportunity to see Pompeii. Sitting in the shadow of Mt Vesuvius you’ll learn about the 79 AD eruption which destroyed the Roman cities of both Pompeii and Herculaneum.
The magnificent Amalfi Coast will take your breath away as you meander along the coast line viewing the towering cliffs as houses seem to grow out of the mountains. Perhaps you will visit Positano, a quaint cliffside village.
Finally let us not forget two more major regions that you can visit in less than 10 days. The Italian Lakes of Maggiore, Lugano, Como and Garda all have their own characters and are simply stunning. Fans of Island life may wish to visit Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean. A prominent landmark is Mt Etna, the tallest active volcano in Europe.
7-10 days in Italy will leave a lasting impression and you will be yearning for another visit. Perhaps a longer one, which you can find in our other section of Italy tours 11-30 days which also include visits to other European countries.
