Itinerary

Make your own way to Rome where you can meet us for the scheduled group transfers to your first hotel. Settle in, relax and meet your fellow travellers.

We start today with a walking tour - the perfect introduction to Rome. Stroll up the Spanish Steps from the Piazza Spagna to the church of Trinità dei Monti and visit the Trevi Fountain; toss in a coin to ensure your return to the Eternal City one day.

Explore at your own pace today. Tantalise your taste buds by restaurant-hopping, shop at world-class boutiques or bathe in the history of Rome’s iconic monuments.

Alternatively, join us for an optional excursion to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. See some of the world’s most famous artworks, including Michelangelo’s astounding ceiling frescoes, as well as the Papal Throne and the Raphael Rooms.

Say goodbye to Rome as we journey north to magical Siena. Explore narrow streets lined with medieval palaces and charming boutiques, and see the stunning Piazza del Campo.

This evening we’ll sit down to a delicious dinner at a Florentine restaurant.

Awake amid amazing art and architecture in Florence. Our guided walking tour takes in elegant palaces, chapels and museums that house Renaissance masterpieces.

Afterwards, choose to ‘skip-the-line’ on an optional, guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery, home to works by Botticelli, da Vinci and Raphael.

Otherwise, spend some free time immersed in the city with a stroll across the Arno River and as many gelato stops as you’d like.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of Italy’s signature sites and it’s our first stop today. Originally tilting due to shifting soil, it’s now safe and stable while retaining its photo-worthy lean. After this, we travel on to Venice. Our hotel has an amazing location on the doorstep of Venice Lido beaches, and just a 10-minute scenic ferry ride to St Mark’s Square.

Explore the extraordinary floating city of Venice with a morning walking tour. Our Local Guide offers an insider glimpse of city highlights like the Rialto Bridge, the Doge’s Palace and the Basilica di San Marco. After this, you have free time to explore at your own pace; take a gondola ride, people-watch in St Mark’s Square or use your 24-hour Waterbus travel pass to explore hidden corners of the city. This evening we’ll meet up for a mouthwatering farewell dinner together at the hotel.

Your tour comes to an end today. Scheduled group transfers are available to the airport, please see www.justyou.com/transfers
