Italy is probably the most celebrated destination, a country that is on the bucket list of many people in the world. The country really does have it all: the world’s greatest hoard of art and architectural treasures, a rich history, a relaxing and pretty mild climate and, not to forget, stunning natural beauty.

Join us on this 9-day, guided tour and get the chance to see some of the gems of the country. Starting from Venice, also known as the 'Queen of the Adriatic', this trip takes you through the centuries-old seaside villages of Cinque Terre and the rolling hills of Florence before coming to an end in Rome.

See some of the major highlights of Venice during a guided tour. Explore Cinque Terre by boat or train, or hiking. Discover the ash-covered ruins of Pompeii with your tour guide and enjoy a nice tour of Florence.

Learn more about the history of the Roman empire during a guided tour of Rome and loose yourself in the world of artists and their masterpiece during a visit to the Vatican Museums. The tour comes to an end in Rome, where we will drive you to the airport. For more details, please refer to the itinerary below.

All the best sights in Italy Well organized
This was a great trip. The choices of tours and hotels were all excellent and in a great order. We saw everything we really wanted to see and just had to show up.
A Bookmundi Travel Expert Stefania Grillo responded to this review:

Ciao Mike

Many thanks for being our Guests.

Organizing a trip in Italy is rather complex and we have to care a plenty of details. Sincerely, as we use to say, for us the most important issue is not to avoid mistakes or problems, it is impossible indeed... but is to find suitable and safe solutions/answers for our Customers in a brief time. And this is what we worked for, making the experience in Italy as much as comfortable for you.

Many thanks again!!!

European Family Trip
Trip was amazing. Would have preferred lifts in all hotels. A bit difficult having to carry luggage 3 flights of stairs. All hotels where close to the centre except for one

The tour was very relax. Would have preferred the hotels to be nearer to the city center so that it's more convenient.
