Italy’s historic and cultural heritage is so rich and so vast that very few countries in Europe can match its treasure. Our journey has been designed to offer an opportunity to savour some of the country’s most magical highlights. From Rome we shall head into the hills of Umbria. We will spend three days exploring the delights of Umbria - Assisi, Montepulciano and Orvieto. Next we have six nights in the heart of Tuscany, the cradle of the Renaissance. Enjoy the art treasures of Florence, lovely landscapes once home to Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. Ramble through villages where we will taste fine regional food and wine, visit medieval towns like San Gimignano, Pisa and Siena. Finally we have three nights in the eternal city, Rome, offering a wealth of cultural beauty and heritage unmatched by any other city in the world. Set under the blue skies of Southern Europe, travelling in the fall almost guarantees us warm temperatures with gentle breezes. This is the ideal season to visit this region!
