Travel through the stunning rolling hills of Tuscany, dotted with vineyards and cypresses, and reach the Cradle of the Renaissance, Florence: let this city enchant you with its glorious art, elegant palaces and splendid bridges. Stand in awe of Michelangelo's David, admire the perfect shapes of the Duomo and the world's finest art and architecture as you stroll through the cobbled streets of the city center.
On your way to Rome, pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage-site of Assisi and the incredible Basilica, a 13-th century masterpiece showcasing numerous works of art – including Giotto's astonishing frescoes.
Retrace the steps of emperors and gladiators taking a tour of ancient Rome, full of historical intrigue. Wander the streets of the central area of the city and visit awe inspiring historical landmarks such as the Roman Forum and the Colosseum to learn more about ages past.
