Departing from Gatwick
Fly direct to Rome. On arrival join the shuttle transfer to your hotel where you will spend 3 nights.
Rome: Why not start your Rome sightseeing with the top sites of Classical Rome? The Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill hold a wealth of history for your to discover.
Rome: No visit to Rome is complete without a trip to the Vatican City. The city state, surrounded by Rome, is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. Not only is it the official residence of the Pope but also a veritable treasure chest of art and architecture from across the ages.
Make your own way to the railway station for the journey by rail to Florence where you will spend 3 nights. (Journey time is approximately 1.5 hours and there is a choice of departure times.)
Florence: Immerse yourself in a world of artistic splendour. Tour the galleries to discover the masterpieces of Giotto, Tiziano, Michelangelo and Botticelli to name but a few.
Florence: Another must see is the Duomo, with the eight white ribs and terracotta tiles of the famous Brunelleschi dome, it’s enormous close up and a guide is recommended to fully appreciate its history. If you are feeling energetic, climb the 463 steps to the top where you can see the inside of the dome up close and get an amazing view of Florence below.
Make your own way the Santa Maria Novella railway station where you will join the airport bus to Pisa airport for the return flight to the UK.
