When you think of the ideal vacation to Italy, what comes to mind? Savoring the regional cuisine and sampling the local wine? Visiting the historical sites from the Roman Empire? Maybe it’s seeing the architectural treasures, splendid artwork, and ornate churches with their religious artifacts. If so, all this and more are offered on this amazing Italy tour-with overnights in Rome, Lucca, Florence, Venice Island, and Assisi.

Food and wine connoisseurs will enjoy the visit to Verrazzano Castle. Located on a hilltop in the Chianti region, learn how the famous Chianti wine is made and sample some! History buffs will delight in visiting some of Italy’s ancient sites, including the Colosseum, completed in the 1st century AD. Art fans will enjoy seeing Michelangelo’s famous works, including the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling paintings in Rome and his celebrated David in Florence. If you’re interested in magnificent churches, you’ll enjoy St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome as well as St. Francis’ Basilica in Assisi, where St. Francis is buried Visit Orvieto Cathedral, a great example of gothic architecture in Italy, and St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, one of the best examples of byzantine architecture.

As a special adventure, Globus has arranged an excursion to Cinque Terre, five small medieval villages on the Italian Riviera and today a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These are just a few of the many highlights on this remarkable tour to Italy’s treasures. Food, wine, history, churches, art, an expert Tour Director and knowledgeable Local Guides-what more could you ask for in an Italy tour?
