Itinerary

Expand All
1 Arrive In Rome, Italy
Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to explore this ancient capital. This evening, meet your Tour Director and fellow travellers.
2 Rome
The "Eternal City" is steeped in history, vibrantly alive and exciting, and absolutely unique! Included sightseeing with a Local Guide starts with St. Peter's Square and Basilica. Other highlights are the iconic Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre ever built, and Circus Maximus. An optional visit is available to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, world famous for Michelangelo's fresco The Last Judgment. (B)
3 Rome - Pisa - Montecatini
Vistas of rolling hills, rows of cypress trees, terraced vineyards, olive groves, and rural villages form the backdrop of your journey through beautiful Tuscany. Stop in Pisa, and take a mini-train ride to see the SQUARE OF MIRACLES and the amazing Leaning Tower. Arrive in Montecatini. (B)
4 Montecatini. Excursion To Florence
Today, enjoy an included excursion to Florence. Your Local Guide will show you the city highlights on the walking tour. You will see Piazza Santa Croce; beautiful Piazza Signoria; Palazzo Vecchio and its courtyard and Loggia dei Lanzi. To top it all, see Piazza del Duomo and its cathedral with the Giotto Campanile, and the magnificent East Doors of the Baptistry, known as the "Gates of Paradise." (B/D)
5 Montecatini - La Spezia - Cinque Terre - Genoa
Travel towards La Spezia, where you'll hop aboard the TRAIN to discover some of the five spectacular Cinque Terre villages. The beauty of the rugged cliffs and romantic fishing villages once inspired poet Lord Byron. From Levanto, head towards Genoa, birthplace of explorer Christopher Columbus. (B)
6 Genoa - Milan - Lake Maggiore
Today's included guided tour is an excellent introduction to Genoa. A maze of squares and alleys, the city grew around the port, a natural inlet, and boasts the largest medieval historical centre in Europe. Some of the highlights include the remains of the city's 17th-century fortifications. Next, head north into the plains of Lombardy, and stop in Milan to marvel at its magnificent gothic DUOMO. Then, continue to Baveno on Lake Maggiore. (B)
7 Lake Maggiore. Excursion To Lugano, Switzerland
Time to relax and get to know Lake Maggiore, one of Italy's largest lakes, located on the very edge of Alpine Switzerland. On clear days, you can see the peaks of the Alps. Take advantage of the included excursion to visit Lugano in Italian-speaking Swiss Canton Ticino. (B)
8 Lake Maggiore - Verona - Venice Area
Travel across the Po River plain and stop in the romantic city of Verona to see Juliet´s balcony, and enjoy some time at leisure marvelling at the Roman Arena. Continue to the Venice area. (B)
9 Venice
Venice is more like a romantic film set than a real-life city, with its crisscrossing canals, gondolas and water buses, arched bridges, palaces, and piazzas. The included orientation starts with a BOAT RIDE to St. Mark's Square, and is followed by time at leisure and a chance to watch Venetian GLASSBLOWERS fashion their delicate objects as they did centuries ago. Don't miss out on the optional gondola trip, gliding along the picturesque canals with a local troubadour to serenade you. (B/D)
10 Venice Area - Ravenna - Assisi - Assisi Area
Enjoy an interesting drive southward right across the Po Delta to Ravenna, renowned for its treasure of byzantine mosaics, recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Continue to Assisi, enclosed by ramparts and little changed since the Middle Ages. This is the town of the deeply mystical and poetic St. Francis. See the BASILICA OF ST. FRANCIS with its famous frescoes by Giotto, with history brought to life by a Local Guide. Overnight in the beautiful area of Assisi, in the heart of Umbria. (B/D)
11 Assisi Area - Pompeii - Sorrento Area
Travel to POMPEII, where time stopped for the rich, aristocratic town with the terrible eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. On the included guided visit, see the remains of luxurious villas, temples, theatre, and forum. Carry on to Sorrento, set on a plateau above the waters of the Bay of Naples. Wander the winding streets lined with shops and stalls, and sit with a glass of wine, absorbing the easy-going life of this charming resort. (B)
12 Sorrento Area. Boat Trip To Capri
Enjoy a day trip to the legendary island, surrounded by a rocky coastline where the crashing sea has formed aweinspiring caves. The town with its pretty piazzetta, maze of streets, fashionable boutiques, and cozy restaurants, is a mecca for the jet set. Explore on your own or take an optional island tour. (B/D)
13 Sorrento Area - Rome
Today, enjoy time at leisure or visit Positano on our exciting optional excursion, before returning to Rome. (B)
14 Rome
Your holiday ends with breakfast this morning. (B)

“This trip certainly provided the best of Italy wonderful historic cities, amazing.”
- QLD, Australia Oct 2017 6 Helpful Votes

The cities visited were amazing and a comprehensive overview was provided. The weather was perfect and Italy delivered it's best. I love this country and Cosmos provided mostly good hotels but a couple didn't quite deliver. The time provided to explore was terrific and the guides provided good commentary.

“Wonderful ”
- NSW, Australia Sep 2017 6 Helpful Votes

We had an amazing time on this tour. We chose to travel with Cosmos because they seemed the best value, and for what we paid we were extremely happy with the inclusions. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, our group while large was a good mix, the coach was comfortable and with one or two exceptions the accommodation was great. The tour itself took us through so many wonderful places in Italy, there wasn't a day wasted but the pace was manageable. Make sure to budget for the...read more

“Very Professional and thoroughly organised fun holiday”
- SA, Australia Sep 2017 12 Helpful Votes

We consider the entire 14 day "Italy's Best" tour of Italy one continuous highlight, whereby each city or place visited in Italy presented a "Wow" factor, whether it be because of historical significance, architectural marvel, or cultural appreciation. The cities and places making up the tour were fantastic and I don't think that a better itinerary could have been provided....read more
