Upon arrival at Venice airport you will be welcomed to Italy and transferred to your hotel where you will be assisted with check-in procedures. On arrival, speed across the lagoon to your hotel.

Italy is a dreamlike country, passionate about its rich culture, culinary delights and historical marvels. Italy has a wealth of natural wonders and artistic showpieces uncommon to most other nations. It explodes with museums, art, ruins, countryside dotted with hills and vineyards, and Riviera with clinging towns that are daunting to digest.

Explore the romantic, less explored side of Venice with your expert local guide today. Meander through the labyrinth of narrow streets and passageways in the old artisans’ quarter where picture postcard images seem to appear around every corner. Visit the Frari Church which houses masterpieces by Titian, Bellini and Canova.
This morning you will be assisted on to a private motor launch and transferred from your hotel to Piazzale Roma, where you will meet your English-speaking driver and depart Venice by private vehicle for Florence. Stop en route in the beautiful city of Verona where you will meet your local English-speaking guide for a 2½ hour walking tour. Your tour will include Juliet’s House and the Arena, the 3rd largest Roman amphitheater built in 30 AD, home to gladiator battles and today, theater and opera performances. After lunch at leisure (up to 1 hour), rejoin your driver and vehicle and continue to Florence.
Join your driver-guide on a journey through to central Italy today and the stunning Tuscan countryside. Explore the region around Cortona, synonymous with the romantic novel and film ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’.

Enjoy the remainder of the day in Assisi at leisure. Your hotel’s amazing spa sits within the 2000 year old Roman structure of the building – truly unique. Rooms are in part of a converted church, many with incredible views over the dramatic Umbrian landscapes.

Enjoy the morning at leisure or explore the fascinating town of Assisi.

Your afternoon begins at a family run Umbrian vineyard, where in its heart a luxury picnic has been laid out for you in the serenity of the Italian countryside, with the medieval city of Assisi as your backdrop. Take your time, as long as you want, your personal waiter will continue to serve estate wines as long as you may wish to linger.

After a leisurely breakfast your driver will transfer you to your hotel in Rome, where you will enjoy the rest of your day at leisure.

In the evening your driver will bring you to the outskirts of Rome for a truly romantic and memorable meal. The Solo Per Due restaurant is one of a kind, where the intimate (the world’s smallest) restaurant is dedicated just to you and your partner, with the whole experience tailored around your tastes and preferences.

Today you will be transferred by private vehicle with an English-speaking driver to the Rome Fiumicino airport to board your departure flight.

Alternatively, you may wish to extend your time in Rome a few nights, and/or journey further south to experience the posh Amalfi Coastline.
