Great masters left their magic touch on the capitals of Florence, Venice and Rome and your 10 day exploration of Italy will reveal this at every turn. Embrace the energy of Italy’s major cities, unwind on the shores of the Italian Lakes and savour the lingering scents of lemons in Sorrento.

  • Views of the monastery high on the hill and beautiful town dedicated to St. Francis

  • View the Roman Arena and Juliet's Balcony and the Square of Miracles to view the Leaning Tower.

Location: Rome, Sorrento, Naples

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: La Panoramica

Meals Included: Breakfast

The Bay of Naples beckons and our first stop is in the picture-perfect resort town of Sorrento. Pastel-hued residences cling impossibly to craggy cliffs that plunge into the deep blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoy your time soaking up the sun-drenched views. You won’t need to venture far to catch the scent of the 'world’s best lemons', which you’ll see in abundance at the local markets. Taste some of the mouth-watering fresh produce grown locally or consider an Optional Experience to the artists’ paradise of Positano, followed by a scenic drive along the Amalfi coast. The Sirens of Sorrento may be nowhere in sight, but that doesn’t mean their alluring call will be possible to resist.

Day 4 : Bay Of Naples – Assisi (1 Night)

Location: Naples, Assisi

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Frate Sole

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Enjoy the atmosphere as you explore the beautiful Bay of Naples during your free time this morning. Alternatively, choose to join an Optional Experience guided walking tour of Pompeii, buried under the volcanic ash for centuries after Mount Vesuvius erupted. Leaving the Bay of Naples behind, journey past Cassino and view the monastery which featured as a backdrop for some of the fiercest battles of World War II. This poignant reminder of war gives way to a place of pilgrimage, as you head north to Assisi where an orientation reveals a medieval town that has changed very little since the time of St. Francis.

Day 5 : Assisi – Venice (Mestre) (2 Nights)

Indulge in a romantic moment of your own before leaving Verona, bound for Italy’s irresistible Lake District. Arriving on the shores of Lake Como, you’ll see first-hand why this scenic setting has been a favourite summer retreat of the rich and famous for centuries. You could choose to board an optional cruise this afternoon to make the most of this idyllic setting. Enjoy dinner at your hotel this evening.

Day 8 : Italian Lakes – Pisa – Florence (Prato) (1 Night)

Location: Erba, Pisa, Florence

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: President

Meals Included: Breakfast

The white marble façades of Pisa’s Cathedral Square gleam in the sunshine, but it is the famous Leaning Tower that gets most of the glory when you visit this 'Meadow of Miracles', so named by 20th-century Italian writer and poet Gabriele d’Annunzio. Since Medieval times, the exquisite structures in the piazza have symbolised man’s journey through religious life – the Baptistery representing birth, life represented by the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, and the Camposanto, death. After a short drive from Pisa, you’ll arrive at your hotel near Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance. A full day of sightseeing lies ahead, so kick back and enjoy the company of your travel companions this evening at an optional dinner in the Tuscan hills.

Visit Piazza della Signoria and squeeze in some time for shopping – Florence is particularly renowned for its high-quality leather and 18-carat gold jewellery. Later, return to Rome, where your journey began. You’ll have an evening alone to forge final memories with new friends or consider an Optional Experience whisking you away on one last sightseeing trip with a mouth-watering farewell dinner followed by live entertainment.

Best trip ever!

20-Jan-2023

Our trip was absolutely outstanding, organized and just plain fun. Agnes is a wonderful tour-guide, knowledgeable and we never had to worry about anything. And Frank, our bus driver, always had a smile and gave us the smoothest bus ride ever! And I've been on buses around the world... If we ever go again (hopefully), Costsaver would be my first and only choice and hopefully we will get "team" Agnes and Frank again.
