From the breathtaking Amalfi Coast to eternal Rome, through the gentle Umbrian and Tuscan countryside to treasured Venice, this wide-ranging 16-day small group tour showcases ancient sites, contemporary life, priceless art and unique accommodations.  Begin in stunning seaside Amalfi, experiencing the breathtaking coast by sea and by land and visiting Pompeii’s exquisite ruins.

Continue to Rome, where sightseeing includes the Colosseum, the Forum, monumental St. Peter’s Square and the sublime Sistine Chapel.  Traveling north, spend three nights in pastoral Umbria, Italy’s “green heart,” savoring a cooking demonstration in Orvieto and a visit to the charming town of Assisi.  Journey through the equally alluring region of Tuscany, touring splendid Siena.  Discover Florence, living monument to the Renaissance, and encounter classic Tuscany in the hill town of San Gimignano.  Sample a local winery’s offerings before concluding your tour in wondrous Venice.  Savor more time in Venice on an optional 3-day/2-night post-tour extension.
