Perhaps stay in an Italian Villa while exploring Tuscany.
What will you see while visiting Rome, Florence and Venice?
Rome is, by far, one of the most sought after tourist spots in Europe. At the Vatican City, which is the Pope's well known address, you can take in the sights of St. Peter's Cathedral, The Sistine Chapel, and the great masterpieces created by artists such as Leonardo de Vinci. You can also marvel at our earliest civilizations' structures such as the Pantheon, the Colosseum, and the Forum where the earliest Olympic games were held. “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”– delve into the city’s many formidable museums and basilicas, tantalize your taste buds with the unparalleled flavour of Italy and surround yourself with the pervading sense of history that is the Eternal City.
Florence is said to be the most populated city in Tuscany and is also the capital. Florence has many red rooftops as you will see when you gaze upon the city from Giotto's Bell Tower. You can get a sense of the open country air, while at the same time experiencing it's rich cultural city life. Don't forget make time for see the Renaissance artworks of the great masters in one of the many galleries. With the opportunity to wine and dine in true Florentine style, visit historically colossal sights, gaze at artistic perfection and watch the sun set over the Arno, Florence is simply unrivalled.
Venice is a dazzling blend of waterways, bridges, land and glorious architecture. For anyone in search of the past, you’ll undoubtedly come across the astounding collection of Renaissance paintings, frescoes, mosaics and sculptures embellishing the interiors of basilicas and churches. And if you can’t get there by foot, you’ll get there by water. Bustling St. Mark’s Square attracts flocks of tourists and pigeons alike, the intricacies of the Doges’ Palace are magical…This age-old floating city is made from the kind of stuff fairy-tales are. Indeed, no amount of reading or flipping through picture books will prepare you for its breathtaking beauty.
Of course Italy is so much more than these 3 cities...the Amalfi Coast, the Italian Riviera, Umbria, Capri, Tuscany and Sicily are all amazing places to visit.
