Quick Holiday Overview

Your dream of visiting the shining cities of Italy with budget travel in mind is easy to reach. With seven days to see the sights from Rome to Venice – including Pisa, Verona, and Florence – your guided Italy tour is waiting.

Majestic Rome, with its historical sites beyond compare, is your first discovery on your affordable Italy vacation. From St. Peter’s Square at the heart of the Vatican, to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, you’ll see why this “eternal city” is a must-see on every traveler’s list.

From Rome, your escorted Italy tour takes you to Pisa and Florence through a gentle landscape of exquisite vineyards, olive groves, and the rolling hills of Tuscany. In Pisa, you’ll see the famed leaning tower and visit the Square of Miracles before heading to Florence – “Cradle of the Renaissance.”

Take a guided walking tour of Florence to soak up the world-famous squares and palazzos of the ornate city, including the Duomo and the Baptistry’s bronze door (“Gate of Paradise”).

Off to Venice via Verona – the setting for Shakespeare’s fabled tragedy of Romeo & Juliet. You’ll see the ancient Roman Arena where gladiators battled – but today serves as the home of the magnificent Arena Opera Festival. From Verona, you’ll continue to romantic Venice, the city of unparalleled beauty.

Take a boat to St. Mark’s square and gaze upon the canals with their gondolas and bridges. You can visit an original glassblowing workshop, discover the narrow alleyways of Venice’s Calli, or its ornate palaces at your leisure for the perfect end to your inspiring Italy tour.

Rome
Rome is the capital city of Italy and of the Lazio region. It is located in the central-western portion of the Italian peninsula, where the river Aniene joins the Tiber.

According to legend, the city of Rome was founded by the twins Romulus and Remus on April 21, 753 BC, but archaeological evidence supports the theory that Rome grew from pastoral settlements on the Palatine Hill , coalescing into a city in the 8th century BC.

Rome enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate. It is at its most comfortable from April through June, and from mid-September to October; in particular, the Roman ottobrate ("beautiful October day") are famously known as sunny and warm days.

The center of Rome is surrounded by some large green areas and opulent ancient villas, which are the remains of the crowns of villas which encircled the papal city. Most of them were largely destroyed by real estate speculation at the end of the 19th century.

Rome may not be the hippest of capitals, but for those who know the right places, it is possible to party all night. Romans go out late and the fun only really commences after dinner. The wine-bars and cafťs lying between Campo deí Fiori, Piazza Navona and Via della Pace are the places to be seen. Irish pubs are also popular with Italians and expats, and can be a good place for a fun and informal night out.

Ingredients and dishes vary by region. There are many significant regional dishes that have become both national and regional. Cheese and wine are also a major part of the cuisine, playing different roles both regionally and nationally with their many variations. Coffee and more specifically espresso has become highly important to the cultural cuisine of Italy.
