Suggested Itinerary

Venice, Florence and Rome

Arrive in Venice and check in for a 3-night stay at the conveniently located Hotel Bisanzio (or similar).

Spend three full days exploring the sights of this unforgettable destination. Visitors always gravitate towards St Mark’s Square, the magnificent piazza that opens out onto the Venetian Lagoon. Elsewhere, don’t miss the art collections at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum and Accademia, or a boat ride to one of the other islands in the lagoon such as Murano or Burano.

It’s a short train journey of just over 2 hours to Florence today. You’ll stay at the central Berchielli Hotel (or similar).

Florence is the endlessly beautiful capital of Tuscany with a UNESCO World Heritage listed historic centre. Spend your three days here, soaking up the scenery and discovering famous sights including the magnificent cathedral and the Boboli Gardens. You could also take a day trip into the Tuscan countryside for some wine tasting or pay a visit to the leaning tower of Pisa – just an hour away by train.

Just an an hour and a half south of Florence is Rome, the Italian capital and former centre of a vast empire. You have a 3-night stay here at the Empire Palace Hotel (or similar).

There are so many iconic landmarks to be discovered here, including the Colosseum and Roman Forum, the ornately decorated St Peter’s Cathedral and Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City , the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain, where you can throw a coin to ensure your return.

Leave Rome today for your onward journey. If you don’t have to head for home yet, why not continue south to the Amalfi Coast? Or visit Pompeii (pictured) and Herculaneum from Naples?
