Work up an appetite for some delicious cicheti by exploring the narrow streets and tiny bridges of Venice. Take a vaporetto across to the island of San Giorgio Maggiore and climb the bell tower for the most exceptional views of this seductive city. Then, cruise through the matrix of narrow waterways aboard a traditional traghetto.
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.
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’.
Venture further afield to the beautifully preserved town of Perugia, in the heart of Umbria. For an insight into local history, why not spend time perusing the National Gallery or Archaeological Museum. Then, set off on a day trip to nearby Spello to sample local wines and food at a quaint enoteca.
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.
