Day 1 – Monday: ROME-ASSISI-SIENA-FLORENCE

Depending on the hotel’s location, in the early morning you will either gather at a designated meeting point within the city center or you will be picked up from the hotel. Leave via coach to Assisi, the birthplace of Saint Francis, the patron saint of animals. Assisi is an ancient city, kept safe in more dangerous times by sturdy city walls that are still intact. During your stay here, you will stop by the Basilica of Saint Francis, home to masterful pieces of art by Giotto and Cimabue. After the stop in Assisi, depart for Siena, a Medieval city positioned in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. Siena is most famous for the Palio, a horse-race organized in the famous Piazza del Campo, the main city square. Following the conclusion of the Siena tour, head to Florence and sit down for a pleasant dinner before turning in for the night.

Day 2 – Tuesday: FLORENCE, PISA (optional, not included)

Begin the day with a buffet breakfast, then depart for a thorough exploration of Florence, a city of astounding beauty and culture. As the Cradle of the Renaissance, Florence contains a wealth of historical artifacts from that time. The city is also loved for its variety of architecture, which spans many centuries. During your time in Florence, you will admire the pristine marble accents of pink, green and white adorning the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the majestic Giotto’s Bell Tower, standing 277 feet tall, the Baptistery of St. John with its gold-adorned carved doors, and Santa Croce, a stunning Franciscan church built in the 13th century. Spend the rest of the day exploring the city on your own. You may wish to visit Michelangelo’s famous statue of David at the Accademia Gallery or visit the Uffizi Gallery, one of the world’s most important art museums. Your tour leader can also suggest activities and other places to see. Perhaps you may wish to visit Pisa and its famous Leaning Tower (optional activity, not included). In the evening, enjoy a delicious dinner and retire for the night at your hotel.

Day 3 – Wednesday: FLORENCE-PADUA-VENICE

Start with a buffet breakfast before leaving for Venice via coach. During the trip to Venice, you will make a brief stop in Padua, site of the beautiful Basilica of St. Anthony. Outside, the church is protected by Donatello’s “Gattamelata.” This stoic statue pays homage to Erasmo of Narni, a famous mercenary who fought for several Italian city states before the country was unified. After the stop in Padua, make your way to Venice and immediately embark on a comprehensive walking tour around the City of Bridges. Along the way, admire St. Mark’s Square, which beholds the Basilica of St. Mark, where the architectural blending of the East and West meet splendidly. Other stops include the Doge’s Palace, a spectacular Gothic structure with a heavy Byzantine influence, and the Bridge of Sighs, named so because it was the prisoner’s last view of Venice before being locked away. After the day's adventures, relax with a delicious dinner before settling in for the night.

Day 4 – Thursday: VENICE

Begin the day with a buffet breakfast. In the morning, you will embark on a boat tour across the lagoon. You will get a chance to see the mesmerizing Venetian architecture and watch as the islands flow by. Your destination is the island of Murano, on which a small town of about 5,000 people lies. Some of the world’s best glassblowers work their trade here, producing pieces that are coveted the world over. Murano is particularly known for its intricate lanterns and lamps. You will get to see some of this fine glass being made and will have some time to shop before heading back to Venice. Spend your afternoon strolling the tiny alleys and canals of the city on your own before sitting down for an intimate dinner at the hotel. After dinner, relax in your comfortable accommodations for the night.
