Sightseeing Highlights

Venice
Venice is the regional capital of the Veneto region in the northeast section of Italy. Venice has a unique design like no other city, built on over a hundred different islands in the center of the Venetian Lagoon. Early Venetians built their city on the islands to escape barbarian invaders. The islands of the city are separated by numerous small canals and connected by hundreds of small bridges. The city is famous for its romantic gondola-filled canals and ornate palaces that line the Grand Canal. The famous glass factories of Venice are located on Murano Island. Today the Murano Islands are home to a dwindling number of glass factories, whose artists are producing handmade Murano Glass.

St. Mark’s Square
The Piazza San Marco (or St. Mark’s Square) is the political, social and religious center of Venetian life. It is the only area of Venice given the name piazza, all other open spaces are referred to as campo, meaning field. The piazza is surrounded on three sides by the 16th century offices of the city, called Procuratie. At the end of the square is the elaborate Basilica of San Marco with great arches covered in elaborate carvings, marble columns and glass mosaics. It is said that Napoleon called the Piazza San Marco the 'drawing room of Europe.'

Bologna
Bologna is the regional capital of the Emilia-Romagna Region in northern Italy. The entire region is famous for its food products and home to some serious “foodies”. The city center contains many artistic and cultural monuments made of the local red brick. The local university and food culture makes for a lively cafe scene.

Food Walking Tour
Inhabited since 1000 BCE, Bologna is full of rich history – especially in relation to its cuisine. Situated in the Emilia-Romagna region, Bologna is a core part of the culinary experience in Italy. Home to the legendary Bolognese sauce, this city is yours to thank for the staple of Italian cooking. Bologna is also renowned for its cured meat, such as prosciutto and mortadella. As you admire Bologna’s architecture, you’ll have the opportunity to explore one of the city’s oldest food markets. Make sure you bring an appetite because you will taste cheese, cured meats, bread, chocolate, gelato, and more! Finish the food tour as you sit down for lunch in a traditional Bolognese restaurant.

Florence
Florence is the regional capital of Tuscany and home to countless Renaissance Masterpieces. The city developed great wealth during the late Middle Ages and was the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance that produced great artists like Michelangelo, Raphael, Brunelleschi and many others. Today it is a UNESCO World Heritage site filled with numerous museums, stunning architecture and charming piazzas. The city offers something for everyone from culture, to great food and excellent shopping (like their famous gold or leather).

Duomo
The main church or cathedral of Florence is often simply referred to as the "Duomo," despite its official name being the Cathedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore (Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flower). Structural construction began in 1296 but was not completed until 1436 when Brunelleschi completed his engineering marvel, the dome. The facade is faced in elaborate marble decorations that were completed in the 19th century. The church ranks as one of the largest churches in the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Academy Gallery
A former 14th-century hospital, this magnificent museum, one of the most popular in Florence, is home to Michelangelo’s masterpiece “David.” The museum has an array of paintings and sculptures that date from the Middle Ages up to the early 17th century with works that include Giambologna's Rape of the Sabines, and Botticelli's Madonna and Child and Madonna of the Sea.

Rome
Rome is the capital of modern Italy and the historical home of one of the great civilizations in history, The Roman Empire. The historical city was founded in 753 BC and has grown to a size of over 3 million inhabitants today. The city is home to major monuments like the Colosseum, Roman forum, Trevi Fountain and many more. The city was built on the seven ancient hills along the Tiber River. Today it is a collection of neighborhoods with vibrant shops, restaurants and museums just waiting to be explored.

Colosseum
The Colosseum is one of the most recognizable structures of the Roman Empire. The structure was built in the first century AD as a place of celebration for Gladiator games and public spectacles. Today the structure has been preserved and is an open air museum that highlights the architectural expertise of the ancient Romans. Visitors can see the details of the recently cleaned facade made of Travertine marble and view the internal structure of this “Wonder of the World.”
