Days 1-2 Venice

Work up an appetite for some delicious cicheti by exploring the narrow streets and tiny bridges of Venice.

Then, cruise through the matrix of narrow waterways aboard a traditional traghetto.

Days 3-4 Cinque Terre

Absorb sweeping views of the Mediterranean from the Cinque Terre's picturesque coastal path. Hike at a leisurely pace or catch a train between these five famous towns, passing vineyards, olive groves and buildings awash with pastel colours. In free time, be sure to indulge in a plate of Liguria's legendary pesto or even take to the sea in a kayak.

Days 5-6 Pisa/Florence

After marvelling at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, appreciate artistic treasures in the romantic Tuscan capital. As the sun begins to set, why not walk up to Piazzale Michelangelo to admire Florence from above and see why this city is affectionately known as Italy’s ‘Outdoor Museum’.

Days 7-8 Perugia/Spello

Days 9-10 Rome

Arrive in the Italian capital and remember that while here, the best attitude is ‘when in Rome’! Perhaps visit the Vatican City to see St Peter's Basilica and dome and enjoy a final gastronomic fling before the journey ends.
