Ciao! Welcome to Italy.
Once you have cleared all customs procedures in Venice, please keep a lookout for your private water taxi with English speaking captain who will chauffeur you to Venice city centre.
Indulgence travellers will enjoy VIP arrival assistance, where they will be accompanied by an English-speaking airport assistant who will accompany them to meet their private water taxi and English-speaking captain.
Once checked in, the remaining day is at your leisure.
3 Nights in Venice – you can choose your hotel and standards below
Comfort travellers will enjoy a private gondola ride for 30 minutes, a must for all first-timers and the quintessential means of transport in the city. Later, enjoy the Venice city sights at your own pace; from its picturesque bridges and piazzas to its churches and grand architecture, there are tons of free things to do in Venice for all ages and interests.
Deluxe and Indulgence travellers will enjoy a private gondola ride and also discover some of Venice’s hidden streets and squares off the standard tourist trail. Embrace the invisible soul of this fantastic city, the anecdotes of its daily life, both past and present, and the secrets and the magic of this ancient water city. Indulgence travellers will be treated to an upgraded gondola with a private singer and an accordionist.
After a good night’s rest, start your day with your private English-speaking guide who will take you to the Doge’s Palace, the seat of government of the Republic personal Doge’s private residence. Continue on to the Palace Halls of Government and Justice, the private apartments of the Doge, prisons, and the very famous Bridge of Sighs.
Next, skip the line and continue to the Basilica, where the body of St. Mark the Evangelist lies. Admire the wonderful golden mosaics depicting stories from the Old and New Testaments before admiring the magnificent views of St. Mark’s Square and its monuments.
After breakfast, meet your private English-speaking water taxi chauffeur and transfer to the Venice Santa Lucia railway station for your onward first-class train to Florence, the fastest and most convenient way to travel around Italy.
We want to make sure our Comfort and Deluxe travellers get the best value for their money, so we have not included a private transfer in Florence. We suggest taking a local taxi that is safe, secure and saves you money for your holiday.
Indulgence travellers will be collected by an English-speaking driver and taken to their hotel.
3 Nights in Florence – you can choose your hotel and standards below
This morning, embark on a walking tour of Florence led by an English-speaking private guide to see the city’s most famous landmarks up close.
The tour will start at the Duomo—Brunelleschi’s famous Dome, once the largest brick dome in the world, it remains one of the city’s most beautiful achievements. Then visit Palazzo Della Signoria—a fascinating political centre with its secularist seat of power—Palazzo Vecchio, and Piazza Della Repubblica—one of Florence’s oldest squares, surrounded today by historic cultural cafés where young intellectual Florentines like to gather.
After lunch, head on the road with your English-speaking driver towards the town of Pisa for a photo opportunity at the medieval structure known as the Leaning Tower of Pisa or Torre Pendente di Pisa.
A break from the journey is always an excellent opportunity to discover a new culture. We will provide you with suggestions for places to visit. Still, today is about exploring Italian life and culture at your own pace and learning where locals go shopping or visit several museums and art galleries that you have yet to have the chance to see so far.
Indulgence travellers will be collected by their private English-speaking driver for a locally guided tour of Tuscany’s Vineyards, tasting 11 different wines. Later, enjoy lunch before returning that afternoon.
Lunch included for Indulgence travellers

Today, you will take a walking tour of ancient Rome with your private English-speaking guide.

With direct access to these remarkable landmarks and no waiting in long lines, you will be awestruck even before entering. Once inside, your guide will bring to life the wild spectacle of gladiatorial combat, political debate, and daily life that once flourished within these walls.
In the morning, explore Rome at your leisure. See the city of ruins and vestiges of a past civilisation, then get to know Rome more intimately by walking its alleys and admiring the many viewpoints over the ancient capital, or enjoy a day of shopping!
After dark, you’ll be picked up by your private English-speaking driver, who will delight you with stories and the history of Rome’s famous landmarks.

At a minimum, your travel insurance should cover cancellation, medical and repatriation expenses. It should also include personal injury and accident, death, loss of personal baggage and money, as well as personal liability insurance.
Credit card companies and reciprocal medical coverage agreements do not always include comprehensive insurance. To learn more, talk to a recommended travel insurance provider or read our terms and conditions.
