The Destination
All roads lead to Rome—and that's where you'll begin your Italian journey. 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 and the baroque opulence of St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican.

Next stop: the birthplace of the Renaissance. From the Duomo of the Basilica di Santa Maria dominating the skyline to Boticelli's The Birth of Venus at the famed Uffizi, Florence offers breathtaking art at every turn. But don't neglect your other senses—Florence is also home to world-renowned Tuscan cuisine.

Steer your trip toward romance and head to Venice, famed for its serene canals and romantic ambiance. 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 the 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. Last, but certainly not least, is the city of Milan. A favorite of the fashion set, Lombardy's capital is brimming with chic shops, trendy restaurants, and cosmopolitan glamor.

Art takes on many forms in Italy—from Renaissance masterpieces to culinary delicacies to designer dresses. Experience them all when you take this nine-day trip to Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan, courtesy of Key Tours Vacations.
