Italy is pretty much single-handedly responsible for extricating Europe from the depths of the Dark Ages. Without the artists of the Renaissance, from Leonardo to Michelangelo, the continent might still be stuck there.

Discover it for yourself with an Escape to the art capitals of Italy from Key Tours International. You'll get an eight-day trip to Rome, Florence, and Venice, plus round-trip flights from Boston ($1,909), Philadelphia ($1,949), Los Angeles, ($1,999), or Toronto ($1,999). Or, opt for the package without flights ($899).

The trip begins in Rome, where you'll be greeted upon arrival and shuttled to the Mecenate Palace, a four-star hotel in the historical center of the city. You'll stay for three nights, touring the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, St. Peters Basilica, the Colosseum, and other notable sites by way of a hop-on, hop-off sightseeing pass.

On day five, you'll be given a train ticket to Florence, where you'll make your own way to the Hotel Ambasciatori, another four-star hotel near the train station. A tour of the city includes a visit to the Duomo, Giotto's Bell Tower, and the Piazza della Signoria. Optional trips to Pisa and Chianti are also available.

On day seven, it's off to Venice via included train ticket. Once there, you'll make your way to the Hotel Principe and you'll have the day to explore the city on your own. Optional tours are available to Murano, Burano, or Torcello islands, or you can choose to visit a local glass factory.

Following breakfast on day nine, you'll head back to the United States—a place that wouldn't exist as we know it today if not for another Italian Renaissance man.

  • "This Mediterranean country has made a profound contribution to Western civilization, producing some of the world's greatest thinkers, writers, politicians, saints, and artists."
