Ideas for Your Vacation
During this vacation, you will first visit he scenically soggy city of Venice, which has been a favorite with travelers for generations. Writers and painters have been especially drawn to its waterlogged beauty, but maybe that’s no big surprise. A marble city with liquid streets is bound to appeal to anyone with an artistic temperament, a flair for romance, and a soft spot for the impossible. Then you’ll visit Tuscany, known for its undulating hills, sprawling vineyards, and sun-kissed villas. The largest city in the region, Florence, is also one of Italy’s most beautiful. you can Stroll across the Ponte Vecchio, admire David in the Galleria dell’Accademia, and wind down with a bottle of vino on the steps of the Piazzale Michelangelo—the best spot to watch the sun set over the Arno River. Finally, you will reach, Rome. It is a city of contrasts—where Vespa scooters whiz past ancient ruins, and photo-snapping tourists share picturesque plazas with impossibly chic fashionistas sporting designs from top Italian designers. Aside from three included tours in each of the cities, you will have plenty of time to explore Italy on your own.
- Grand Canal: Gondolas snake through the city’s heart on one of the world’s most famous waterways, which laps historic palaces and landmarks, including the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark’s Square.
- Ponte Vecchio: Butchers originally worked the stalls along this covered stone bridge across the Arno River. Today it’s loaded with vendors selling jewelry, cheap watercolors, and souvenir trinkets.
- Spanish Steps: A fascinating cross-section of locals, street merchants, and tourists makes this one of the city’s best spots for people watching.
- Head to the Vatican City to see the Sistine Chapel—where Michelangelo painted his famous frescoes—or St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome’s most-visited cathedral.
