Culinary epicenter, fashion capital, historic tour de force — Italy can be described as all these things and more. Explore several of Italy’s most popular cities as you make your way through Rome, Florence and Venice. Admire the Vatican before the crowds arrive on a special early-morning visit. Tour the treasures of Florence, including Michelangelo’s David at the Accademia. Venture into the Chianti region in the beautiful Tuscan countryside for a private wine-tasting. Embark by vaporetto to the island of Murano to see its famous artisan glassworks. Stroll the market district in Venice, and sample cicchetti (traditional snacks) at a local bacaro (wine bar).
