The Splendors of Italy with Sorrento
Italy—a country without compare. Explore the maze of streets in Venice, and discover hidden treasures and restaurants in their back alleys. Stand in awe as you admire the Leaning Tower of Pisa, one of Italy’s most famous must-see wonders. Have your camera ready as you explore Rome’s historical sites, including the Colosseum—the amphitheater used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles during the Roman Empire. Sit in a café as you admire one of Italy’s most unique squares in Siena. Explore the laid-back town of Sorrento with its high and low hills, azure-seas, majestic mountains, and deep valleys. Enjoy wine tasting in the Chianti wine region, and shop for local goods in Tuscany. Whatever you want from your Italian vacation—amazing architecture, sumptuous food and wine, art and historical treasures, or scenic beauty—this trip has it all.
