Oscar Wilde once said that fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months. Clearly, he had never been to Italy. Experience timeless beauty that never goes out of style with a six-night romp for one guest based on double occupancy—round-trip international airfare from New York included—through Southern Italy on select dates* courtesy of Gate 1 Travel ($2,499).

All hotels, taxes, round-trip international airfare, ground transfers, tours, and entrances fees are included in this well-vested vacation that also boasts six breakfast buffets and three dinners with wine. Non parli Italiano? No problemo. English-speaking tour guides will accompany you the entire time.

Hit the Roman runway with three nights in the elegant Grand Hotel Palatino. Then, strut your stuff through St. Peter's Square as you vogue among votives in the Vatican Museum and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. An included Post-Meridian Piazza tour is all the rage—especially when you work it in your air-conditioned motor coach.

Try on a morning outing to the Roman Forum and the Arches of Constantine and Titus. Then suit up for dinner with opera singers before threading your way south via Amalfi Drive a road which winds through the coastal cliffs and the Tyrrhenian Sea. Arrive at the posh ruins of Pompeii—a storied and opulent Etruscan city that's been eerily preserved in ash from the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79.

Attired from your travels, you'll gladly rest your bella figura for three more nights at Hotel Central or Hotel Cristina in Sorrento. The seaside settings trend with artists and poets. Keep haute temperatures at bay with a cool limoncello while you enjoy a leisure day off the cuff or catwalk in Capri, which Lonely Planet describes as "the perfect microcosm of Mediterranean appeal—a smooth cocktail of chichi piazzas and cool cafés, Roman ruins and rugged seascapes."

Make a statement with this tailored Italian trip without treating your finances like a passing fad.

  • "The Amalfi Coast is one of Europe’s most breathtaking. Cliffs terraced with scented lemon groves sheer down into sparkling seas; whitewashed villas cling precariously to unforgiving slopes while sea and sky merge in one vast blue horizon."
