BELLA ITALIA ESCAPE

7 Day Tour from Venice to Rome

On this escape to beautiful Italy, experience three of Italy’s most iconic cities Venice, Florence, and Rome—without the crowds of the high-season, or the high prices associated with busy travel months. What better way to start your escorted vacation to Italy than with a welcome dinner with your travel companions in Venice? Your Venetian experience also includes a private boat ride, a guided walking tour; a visit to St. Mark’s Square, its byzantine Basilica, the Doges’ Palace, and the Bridge of Sighs. Also watch the age-old tradition of glassblowing by a local artisan. Travel to Pisa—home of the famous Leaning Tower—before continuing on to Florence, considered to be the “Cradle of the Renaissance.” Florence is an art-lovers dream and your sightseeing highlights such masterpieces as Michelangelo’s David statue in the Academy of Fine Arts. You’ll also travel to Assisi to visit the Basilica of St. Francis—named after the saint who sought the virtues of humility, forgiveness, simplicity, and best known for his love of God.
