Day 1 - VENICE

Welcome to the “unique” Venice, the city of lagoons! You will be astonished by the beauty and charme of this city!
Today we will visit Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) and the interior of the Basilica, a 900 year old marvel of architecture! The church is unique in Italy for its golden Byzantine and Medieval mosaics, its intricate stone and marble traceries and exuberant Middle Eastern domes. Near St. Mark’s Basilica is Palazzo Ducale, the most impressive secular building in Venice and once the official residence of the supreme authority of Venice, the “Doge”.
At lunch, we will relax by tasting wine and savoring delicious ”cicheti”, finger food ranging from simple cheese or salami to almost any kind of seafood, fried and grilled vegetables, sweet and sour sardines, creamy codfish and much, much more!
In the afternoon we will visit Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari (Saint Mary’s of Friars): this vast Gothic church is striking for its huge size and for the quality of its works of art, including masterpieces by Titian, Giovanni Bellini and Donatello, and several grandiose tombs. Then Santi Giovanni e Paolo, one of the city’s greatest Gothic church, which houses monuments to no fewer than 25 Doges. We will explore the streets and savor everyday life in an intricate maze of ancient narrow alleyways, lively squares with magnificent buildings and meandering canals, and finally we will walk on the Rialto Bridge, the busy "heart" of Venice.
Tonight we will have dinner in a typical Venetian trattoria. We suggest you to try “Sarde in saor” (marinated sardines), a risotto with seafood, the typical “baccala' mantecato”, to finish with a fantastic bussola (a ring-shaped and cinnamon-flavored cake)!

Welcome to Florence, the land of Giotto and Dante! In Piazza della Signoria we will see the imposing Palazzo Vecchio, one of the symbols of Florence and still the seat of government of the city, with the crenellated tower of Arnolfo, and the famous “Loggia dei Lanzi” with its incredible classical statues, a true museum in open air .
We will then admire the Duomo, Giotto’s Campanile and the Baptistery, one of the oldest buildings in the city, in the Florentine Romanesque style with its famous bronze doors made by Pisano and Ghiberti in the 14th and 15th centuries. At midday we will have lunch with “Panino con Lampredotto” in a typical Florentine market.
Tonight dinner in Oltrarno, the Florence of the Florentines, enjoying a Florentine grilled steak with a glass of good red Chianti wine!
Overnight in Florence


In the morning we will visit Galleria dell’Accademia which hosts Michelangelo's David, the most famous sculpture in the world! We will also spare some time to relax, visiting a typical market for shopping, strolling through the pedestrian streets of the city and crossing the oldest bridge in Florence, Ponte Vecchio, rich of jewellery shops.
In the afternoon let’s head for the Chianti wine area, where we will visit a cellar and have a sip of the most renowned Tuscan wine, the red Chianti.
Overnight in Chianti


Orvieto is one of the most scenic towns in Italy, perched up on volcanic rock. Although just an hour from Rome, the architecture is different, with many of the buildings constructed out of tufo, a type of volcanic rock. We will admire its 14th century Cathedral – a masterpiece of Gothic architecture with a glistening façade of stained glass, mosaics and sculptures.
Here we are in Rome, a place where ancient history, excellent art and religious icons mix in a unique blend!

Then we will see the Pantheon, dedicated to the worship of every god (Pan-every Theon-divinity), now memorial chapel of great Italian people of the past, then the Church of St. Louis of the French famous for the cycle of paintings by the Baroque master Caravaggio at the end of the 16th century, Piazza Navona and finally Fontana di Trevi, a Rome icon known all over the world.
In the afternoon we’ll reach the Vatican and we will be stunned by the grandiosity of the Basilica of St. Peter, framed by the magnificent four column-deep colonnade designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
In the evening, we will have dinner in Trastevere, a charming medieval neighbourhood with a fiery temperament! Here we will taste the Roman Cuisine in a typical Trattoria: you may try “Saltimbocca alla Romana” ( veal lined or topped with prosciutto and sage),“Bucatini cacio e pepe” (pasta with Pecorino Romano cheese and ground black pepper) and, in season ,”Fiori di Zucca Fritti” (fried zucchini flowers)!
