Day 1 UK - Florence: Upon arriving in Florence, check-in to your centrally located hotel (see our collection of hotels in Florence), you should head to the River Arno and see the sunset from Ponte Vecchio. Cross the river to the area around Piazza della Signoria and indulge yourself with some traditional Tuscan cuisine and a glass or two of Chianti wine.
Day 2 Florence: Pre-book the 'My Florence Walking Tour' to make the most of Florence's historic centre. Visit the Duomo, see Michelangelo's David at the Accademia and visit the Uffizi gallery where you can view the largest collection of renaissance masterpieces in the world.
Day 3 Pisa: Visit the city of Pisa, famous for its architectural beauty. Marvel at the fascinating Piazza dei Miracoli with the celebrated Leaning Tower, the Baptistery and the artistic treasures of the cathedral.
Day 4 Florence: Take a break from the crowds and head to Fiesole which sits peacefully in the hills just above the city. The stunning views are reason alone for visiting the sleepy village home to ancient Roman ruins and 11th century buildings.
Day 5 Florence - Venice: Catch the train from Firenze Santa Maria Novella Station to Venice (approx. 2 hours); upon arrival take a water taxi to your chosen hotel selected from our extensive range (see our collection of hotels in Venice). Venice is made up of an archipelago of 118 islands connected by a collection of over 400 bridges; spend the afternoon exploring the charming city on foot.
Day 6 Venice: Visit St. Mark's Basilica; with its multi coloured marble pillars and floor to ceiling mosaics it's easily one of the city's greatest historical gems. Go to the top of the Campanile (clock tower) and get up close and personal with the bells whose chime can be heard far and wide. Just across the Bridge of Sighs is the Doge's Palace where you will find the prison in which the legendary Casanova was once housed.
Day 7 Venice: No stay in Venice is complete without a serenaded gondola ride. The gondolas have navigated the waterways of Venice for over 900 years and are the perfect platform for capturing the atypical city on camera (bookable in resort).
Days 8 Venice - UK: Climb aboard a water taxi to Marco Polo airport (approx. 15 minutes) and fly back to the UK.

Italy has to be one of my favourite places to go for great cuisine and wine. Every time I visit I look forward to what culinary delights will be in store, from experiencing handmade pizza in Pisa with a glass of Tuscan red to relaxing by the coast with a bowl of the famous Italian gelato.Raghavendra Multi Centre Expert
