From $2813 NZD
Three’s company but four’s a crowd. That’s why we’ve included three of Italy’s most fascinating cities on this exciting getaway. From the ancient ruins of Rome and the fascinating sculptures in Florence to the scenic canals in Venice, this 10-day holiday is sure to delight. But it’s not just the sights that will delight you; it’s what we’ve included to make sure your holiday runs seamlessly: hotel reservations at centrally located hotels, buffet breakfast daily, sightseeing, and transportation on high-speed trains between each city. Plus, we’ve arranged for you to have a Local Host® in each city. These local experts will be your friend in the cities—taking you to the train stations; getting you on the right train, so you don’t end up in a city you didn’t mean to visit; offering you suggestions on where to eat and where to go; translating for you; and letting you in on little-known secrets, like where to capture the best photo of St. Peter’s Basilica.
In each city, you’ll also have leisure time to enjoy activities you desire. Perhaps visit the Catacombs in Rome, descend the legendary Spanish Steps, learn to cook from an Italian chef, and throw a coin in Trevi Fountain. From Florence, maybe take an excursion into the Chianti countryside or to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Be serenaded by live music on a gondola or savor a drink at a café in Venice’s St. Mark’s Square. Whatever you desire, this holiday to Rome, Florence & Venice gives you the opportunity to discover and experience it! And because we take you from your hotels to the train stations and pick you up at the train stations, you won’t waste time dealing with logistics, giving you more free time to do as you please!
