Like the beautiful mosaics gracing the floors and walls of ancient Roman villas, we’ve brought together the most colourful parts of Italy to create an impact with this visually stunning holiday. Hand selecting experiences from multiple regions of “the boot,” we’ve assembled an imaginative getaway with the brightest pieces of Rome, Florence, and Venice, plus the sultry Italian Riviera, the breezy Lake District, and the sunny coast of Campania. The pastel-tinted Cinque Terre fishing villages, the sparkling blue waters of Capri, and the lemon-tree-lined streets of Sorrento offer a vivid picture of Italy, while the pilgrimage destination of Assisi, the Roman ash preserved city of Pompeii, and the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa provide just the right accents. Travelling north, south, coastal, and inland, this multi-hued tour of Italy is a picture-perfect montage of memories
