You will depart at 7:15 am from the Hotel Massimo D’Azeglio by deluxe coach to Assisi. You can explore this tiny town at your own leisure – the town itself is surrounded by walls and was built in the middle ages. Ensure that you make time to visit the Basilica of St. Francis, where you will see masterpieces by Giotto and Cimabue, and enjoy tome time for lunch (not included). 

Subsequently, you will board the bus for Siena, a Medieval town surrounded by ancient walls – it is renowned for the Palio, an annual summertime horse race around the shell-shaped town square, Piazza del Campo. 

Next, you will continue on to Florence, where you will check in to your hotel before enjoying dinner and a well-earned night of rest.

After breakfast, you will spend the day venturing around beautiful Florence, the Cradle of the Renaissance. With the help of Michelangelo, it was in Florence that Italian art reached its pinnacle. Based on Etruscan-Roman origins, the city flourished in the Middle Ages as a free Commune and was further refined during the Renaissance. You will be fascinated by the uncountable monuments, churches and buildings as Santa Maria del Fiore, more commonly referred to as the Duomo. 

On your visit, you will be amazed by its magnificent dome built by Filippo Brunelleschi. Cross a small piazza to see the Campanile tower (partly designed by Giotto) and the Baptistery, with its bronze doors where Michelangelo imagined the Gates of Paradise. In the heart of the city, you will see Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo della Signoria (also known as Palazzo Vecchio), and the Basilica of Santa Croce. 

Enjoy lunch in a traditional Tuscan restaurant in Piazza Santa Croce. Spend the afternoon strolling the cobblestone streets of Florence on your own or take a short trip to Pisa (optional), one of the four main historical Marine Republics of Italy. There, you will tour the Piazza dei Miracoli with the Duomo, Pisa’s symbol “the Leaning Tower” and the Baptistery. Dinner at leisure, overnight stay in Florence.

After breakfast in Florence, depart for Bologna. You will discover the elegant city centre with its porticos, it’s shopping streets and so much more. From Piazza Malpighi you will walk to Piazza del Nettuno and Piazza Maggiore (Neptune square and Major square), right in the heart of the city.

You will then visit King Renzo’s Palace; Palazzo Podestà and the basilica of San Petronio, one of the biggest in the world. Bologna it’s a foodie’s heaven and the gastronomic capital of Italy.

Take the opportunity to sample its delicacies at the best markets, most authentic delis or aperitivo spots. In the afternoon, continue toward Padova, with Sant’Antonio Basilica: one of the most visited churches by pilgrims of the Catholic world.

Later in the afternoon, you will arrive in Venice: the City of Love, one of the most romantic cities in the whole world and, undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man! Check in at your hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.

Tour ends after breakfast! You may opt for an extension in Venice or for other locations (i.e. North Lakes or Milan).
