About Italy

Italy Uncovered Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Venice

Arrive in evocative, intriguing Venice. Cruise down the Grand Canal in a water taxi, poke around in the shops near Rialto Bridge or admire spectacular sculptures and gold mosaics inside the Basilica di San Marco. Then, at night, why not dine al fresco at an authentic Venetian restaurant and absorb the quiet air of romance.

Days 3-4 Gubbio

Farewell Venice and travel through the undulating Umbrian countryside to Gubbio. Ride a cable car up Mt Ingino to see the frescoed summit basilica and pay respect to the town's patron saint.

Days 5-6 Assisi/Spello

Visit Assisi, the birthplace of Saint Francis, and see Roman temple ruins while on an orientation walk. Explore the ancient Basilica di San Francesco under the guidance of a member of the Franciscan community, and discover local wines and regional food specialties in medieval Spello.

Days 7-8 Rome

After a relaxing train ride, arrive in Rome. During free time, tread the cobbled streets to unearth history, visit the many attractions in Rome and soak up that vibrant Italian spirit. While here, perhaps discover the ancient heart of the Vatican City - be sure to climb to the top of St Peter’s Dome to marvel at the exquisite interior detail and look out over the Vatican gardens and the timeless city that lies beyond.

Days 9-10 Naples/Pompeii

Take a walk through the fascinating historical centre of Naples and uncover ancient tales in the Archaeological Museum. Pay the appropriate respects in the birthplace of Neapolitan pizza – which for most is worthy of a hot slice or three. Then, make tracks to Pompeii and enjoy a guided walk through these historically significant ruins.

Days 11-12 Sorrento

Take in marvellous views of the Bay of Naples from the summit of Mt Vesuvius. Travel onwards to Sorrento and make the most of relaxation time in Sant'Agnello.

Days 13-15 Amalfi

Follow the 'Footpath of the Gods' while hiking along the magnificent Amalfi Coast. Spend time exploring this famous stretch of Italian coast, now one of the world's premier walking holiday destinations. Perhaps visit Positano or walk through the gardens of Ravello's beautiful Villa Cimbrone before the adventure ends.
