ARRIVE IN ROME, ITALY.
Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to explore Italy's ancient capital using your CosmosGO app. This evening, meet your Tour Director and fellow travellers.
The "Eternal City" is steeped in history, vibrantly alive and exciting, and absolutely unique! Start the included introduction to Rome's landmarks from St. Peter's Square with a Local Guide. Enjoy a drive along the iconic landmarks of the city: the Tiber River, the Caius Cestius Pyramid, the Aurelian Walls, and the Caracalla Baths. Complete the experience with a walk back in time from the Circus Maximus to the Arch of Constantine and to the fascinating Colosseum, symbol of the Roman Empire. Don't miss out on the opportunity to visit the treasures of the Vatican museum and the Sistine Chapel, on our optional excursion.
ROME – PISA – FLORENCE.
Vistas of rolling hills, cypress trees, vineyards, olive groves, and rural villages form the backdrop of your journey through beautiful Tuscany. Stop in Pisa and enjoy a mini-train ride to see the Square of Miracles and the amazing Leaning Tower, then on to Florence. End the day by joining the optional Gastronomy Experience in a typical restaurant.
This Renaissance gem and city of the Medicis will keep you enthralled the entire day. Don't miss out on the included walking tour with a Local Guide, which features the city highlights.

FLORENCE – VERONA – VENICE AREA.
Journey north to enchanting Verona to spend some time at leisure strolling around the historical city centre with its many highlights. Continue to the Venice area.
Venice is more like a marvellous film set than a real-life city, with its crisscrossing canals, gondolas and water buses, arched bridges, palaces, and quiet little piazzas. Take a boat ride to St. Mark's Square and enjoy time at leisure for a chance to watch Venetian glassblowers at work. Don't miss out on the optional gondola trip, gliding along the picturesque canals with a local troubadour to serenade you.
