Arrive in Rome and check in to your hotel before heading out to explore the 'Eternal City' for the afternoon. Stroll up the Spanish Steps and admire the view before heading to the iconic Trevi Fountain. In the evening, try a delicious Roman speciality, including pizza, pasta and delicious antipasti platters.
Spend the next few days visiting some of Rome's top attractions including The Colosseum and the Vatican museums - home to one of the most important art collections in the world, and don't miss the unforgettable Sistine Chapel and Rome's greatest temple – St. Peter's Basilica. This get busy quickly so we suggest visiting first thing in the morning when it opens. In the evenings, head across the river to the Piazza Navona where you'll find an excellent selection of restaurants for dinner.
Today you'll catch the train from Rome Termini Station to Firenze Santa Maria Novella Station in Florence (approx 1.5 hours). When you arrive check in to your centrally located hotel before heading out to get to grips with this spectacular city. We suggest starting off with the Piazza della Signoria, where there are numerous delights to be found including the imposing Palazzo Vecchio.
Start your day with a visit to the Duomo, see Michelangelo's David at the Academia and stroll through the Uffizi Gallery where you can view the largest collection of Renaissance masterpieces in the world. Finish your day with an aperitivo in a rooftop bar before getting ready for your evening meal.
Spend today visiting the nearby city of Pisa, famous for its architectural marvel – the iconic Leaning Tower. Marvel at the other sights of the Piazza dei Miracoli, candling the Baptistery, before heading into the city’s heart to experience its more authentic side with tree-line avenues and local trattorie.
It's time to say goodbye to Florence. Check out of your hotel and transfer to the airport by either catching the train or booking a private transfer.
