Embrace la dolce vita on a culturally rich journey through beautiful Italia
Italy's myriad splendors are known the world over, and you'll encounter your first of many in Milan, where you'll see Da Vinci's The Last Supper. Delve into the luminous architectural and artistic highlights of water-bound Venice and discover Northern Italy's gems: Verona, Padua, Bologna and Ferrara.
Then travel to Florence, where the Renaissance began. See astonishing works by Michelangelo, Rafael, Donatello and Boticelli, and savor a spectacular homemade lunch and a Chianti wine tasting at Castello di Verrazzano. A fitting end to your Italian adventure awaits in Rome with all of its wonders-the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican Museum, Trevi Fountain, Sistine Chapel and so much more.
