3’ Day - Rome

Rome is known as the “Eternal City” and everything has an explication. Time appears to have ceased here hundreds of years back, given the large number of remaining monuments and rests of imposing buildings, which turns strolling through the lanes into a trip back so the capital’s golden age.

The capital of Italy and previous “caput mundi” and all of its history awaits us! There are a lot of reasons to visit Rome, but one thing is for sure… it is an incredbile city that you will want to come back to. The local gastronomy and lively atmosphere of the city are only a few examples of the things that make this city great. We will start our tour at most visisted landmark in Italy and what is seen to be the symbol of this city: the Colosseum, which, despite being half torn down, still oozes wonder. Yet, we don’t stop here, as we proceed to Venice Square with impressive Atlar of the Fatherland, the famous Trevi Fountain, we will follow the route until Panthenon, the Novona Square to finish with a visit to the Spanish Square.

We will spend the night in a hostel on the outskirts of the city. Fun fact… did you know that Florence is known as the birthplace of the Renaissance?

And that is not all, believe it or not, the Vatican is also home to one of the biggest churches in the world, the Basílica de San Pedro.
  • The only bank in the world which allows its customers to select latin as the language when using the cash machines is the Vatican Bank.

“Buongiorno Principessa” said Benigni, an actor from the city of Florence, in the film “Life is Beautiful”.

Today you can visit numerous fine arts by creators in the historical center of the Uffizi, or if walking round an exhibition hall is not for you, you can take a stunning walk up the famous hills where you can get to the fantastic viewpoint of the fanciful arch of Brunelleschi which dominates the city.

We will also have an optional activity for those who want to visit 5 Terre and the most famous tower, that is surprising visitors for over 1000 due to its inclination: The Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Are you ready to go to the beach? Grab your swimsuit, towel and sunscreen, it’s time to enjoy the Italian coast! 5 little towns with colorful houses, hanging from the cliffs. A place where pollution almost hasn’t made a dent. There are very few cars and the way to travel between towns is either by foot or by a spectacular little train that runs along the seafront.

6’ Day- Florence - Venice

After admiring this small city which has more than 3000 years of history, we will hop back on the bus to continue our trip. Our next stop is the city that had the honour of being one of the most powerful, rich and populated for many centuries. The city that dominates the Mediterranean and oriental trade routes: Venice!

This is the first european city that has been converted into an open-air museum that attracts so many tourists that they almost don’t fit! That’s why, don’t loose the opportunity to visit it. Because soon, limits will be set to control the reaffic of tourists… Or the water can sink it!

This city is also home to incredbile works of art that have been influenced by the Byzantine era, as demonstrated in the artwork of Marco Polo.

 
 
7’ Day - Venice *Murano & Burano

Continue to fall even more in love with this city as you explore its narrow streets and wander along the canals! Venice is one of the most photographed places in the world. Don’t waste time, grab your camera and find your inner photographer; bridges, Vaporettos and Gondolas are all waiting to be snapped!

Don´t forget to enjoy all of the art at your disposal which has Byzantine influence, which can be seen most notably in the construction of the Basilica of San Marco. You can also admire the biggest canal in Venice from the Rialto Bridge. But if you really want to enjoy and admire this city the best thing to do is go and get lost in its narrow streets and be surprised every time you turn a different corner.

*Optional Activities:

  • Visit Murano and Burano (price to be confirmed)

Did you know that…

  • The only way to get around the city is on foot or by water. It is illegal to drive a car or ride a bicycle in this district.
  • The latest bridge to  be constructed in Venice was designed by the Spanish architect: Calatrava.
  • Walking around Venice could give you the feeling that there are numerous channels, whereas there are in fact just two: the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal. The other little waterways that course through the restricted lanes are considered rivers.
  • Every now and again there is a phenemenon that occurs in Venice called “Acqua Alta”. This occurs when there is a notable increase in the water level of the Lagoon of Venice which happens over a short period of 3-4 hours. Depending on the intensity of this rise it can lead to flooding in the old town, sometimes up to half a metre.
