All roads lead to Rome—and it's clear why. This former seat of the Roman Empire remains one of the cultural capitals of the world. Hop on a moped to travel the city's seven hills from monument to museum to landmark. With its rich long history, the Eternal City is home to the ancient ruins of the Colosseum and the Forum; the baroque opulence of St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican; and a culinary tradition that includes some of the best pizzerias and gelaterias on the continent.

As the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence holds a special place in the world of art. The Duomo of the Basilica di Santa Maria dominates the skyline and breathtaking art is found at every turn: see Boticelli's The Birth of Venus at the famed Uffizi, Michelangelo's David at the Accademia Gallery, and learn the history of fashion at the Gucci Museum. But don't neglect your other senses—Florence is also home to world-renowned Tuscan cuisine.

Famed for its serene canals and preserved Renaissance architecture, Venice is a place best seen from the romantic perspective of a gondola. More than 100 islands are connected by a network of canals to make up the main city, so visitors never run out of nooks and crannies to investigate. Catch a show in the gilded theater of the La Fenice opera house, see stunning architecture of St. Mark's Basilica overlooking the Piazza San Marco, and spend an afternoon strolling the car-free walkways and bridges of the city center.

Three cities with singular personalities form the trifecta of iconic Italy. Experience them all with this Escape courtesy of go-today.*

Days 1 to 3: Board your flight to Rome, where you'll catch an optional private transfer from the airport to the Holiday Inn Express Rome—San Giovanni, your home base for three nights. An open schedule allows you to spend the days in Rome as you please. Explore on your own, or use your two-day pass to see the sights on hop-on, hop-off tours of Rome. Choose either of two routes to see landmarks like the Colosseum, St. Peter's Basilica, and the Trevi Fountain.

Days 4 to 6: A train will bring you from Rome to Florence, where you'll spend three nights at Hotel de la Pace or Hotel La Fortezza, depending on your travel dates. A two-day pass gives you access to hop-on, hop-off tours of Florence. Two routes take visitors by the Duomo, Santa Croce, and Uffizi, among other sights. Along the way, you'll also see the important works of masters Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael.

Days 7 to 9: After a train ride from Florence, arrive in Venice for three nights at Santa Chiara Hotel or Hotel Alle Guglie, depending on your travel dates. Choose one morning to take a 1.5-hour walking tour of Venice. The route begins at Piazza San Marco and includes stops at St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, and Santa Maria Formosa.

Day 10: You'll depart from the Venice airport for your return flight to the US.

  • "A good-looking city! Naked like Michelangelo’s David or rugged up in the latest winter fashion by their own world-class designers, Florentines and their city never fail to impress. At times it seems nothing much has changed since the days of the Medici."
