Full Itinerary

1: Thursday, March 6: Leaving the U.S.

The aviation industry is starting to grapple with cybersecurity.

The airfare is not included in the package but I can find the perfect solution for you at the best price.

3: Saturday, March 29: A day in Rome

Today, we will begin our day by visiting the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Cathedral.

This tour is part of the package. Please be ready on time to join the group. A private van will pick us up and take us to Vatican City, where we can enjoy the beautiful art collection and the Vatican itself.

After visiting the Vatican Museums, we’ll have the rest of the day to explore Rome, including the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and the Pantheon. We’ll also have time for gelato and optional tours or activities.

2: Friday, March 7: Welcome to Rome

Arrived at the airport, a private van will take you to the hotel.

For these first three nights, we’ll stay at the Trevi Hotel, a 3-star Superior hotel with breakfast included.

With just a brief walk one can easily reach the Spanish Steps and the Terrazza del Pincio, which offers a breathtaking view over Piazza del Popolo and the city skyline. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel one can find the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and the whole constellation of churches and basilicas that dot the historic city-centre. Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, San Ignazio Loyola, San Carlo alle quattro Fontane: all of them precious jewels of art and architecture, part of the rich cultural and spiritual heredity of Italy. Heading south you may easily come across piazza Venezia, admire the magnificence of the Altare della patria, immerse yourself in the suggestive frame of the Imperial forums and be amazed at the majesty of the Colosseum. if instead you would prefer to go shopping, via Frattina and the most importing streets for shopping are just behind the corner. All just a few steps away from hotel Trevi, in Rome’s city-centre, where all roads converge. Sleep comfortably under a typical wood-beamed ceiling; have breakfast surrounded by a panoramic view of the roofs and alleys of the eternal city; easily reach every location of artistic and cultural interest, the streets for shopping and high fashion…Hotel Trevi is much more that a holiday in Rome’s city-centre: hotel trevi is living Rome’s city-centre, it’s alleys, it’s perfumes and it’s seductive promises.

Today is the Colosseum day tour.

We will take a walk to the Colosseum, where a guide will provide you with all the necessary information about this precious piece of art.

Today, we will take the fast train to Florence. After arriving, we will walk to our hotel, where we will stay for two nights. Our hotel is De La Ville, a 4-star hotel that includes breakfast.

Hotel De la Ville is the result of the union of two buildings in the historic centre of Florence, one of which was built around 1460 with important graffiti on the facade, still visible today, created by Andrea di Cosimo Feltrini in 1579.

Its proximity to the most important artistic sites in Florence makes it the ideal location for a stay to discover the city. In addition to the magnificence of the works of art in the center of Florence, a world heritage site, there are ancient artisan workshops that seem to have remained unchanged over the centuries.
