From the breathtaking Amalfi Coast to eternal Rome, through the gentle Umbrian and Tuscan countryside to treasured Venice, this wide-ranging 17-day small group tour showcases ancient sites, contemporary life, priceless art, and unique accommodations. You begin in stunning seaside Amalfi, experiencing the breathtaking coast by sea and by land, and visiting Pompeii’s exquisite ruins. Continue to Rome, where your sightseeing includes the Colosseum, the Forum, St. Peter’s Square, and the Sistine Chapel. Traveling north, you spend three nights in pastoral Umbria, Italy’s “green heart,” savoring a cooking demonstration in Orvieto, and a visit to the charming town of Assisi. Journey through the equally alluring region of Tuscany, touring walled Siena, the Renaissance’s living monument of Florence, and the classic hill town of San Gimignano. You enjoy a local wine tasting before concluding your tour in wondrous Venice. Savor more time in this delightful city on an optional 3-day/2-night post-tour extension.
