Florence: A visit to the Uffizi Gallery is a must. Feast your eyes on Botticelli's Birth of Venus and Primavera, Titian's Venus of Urbino and works by Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Make your own way to the railway station for the included rail journey from Florence to Perugia where you will spend 2 nights. Journey time is approximately 2 hours. Choice of departure times.
Perugia: Explore the medieval Cattedrale di San Lorenzo. Sit with the locals on the steps in front of the facade and take in the atmosphere of this deeply historic yet fun-loving university city.
Make your own way to the railway station for the included rail journey to Rome where you will spend 3 nights.
Rome: Visiting the major sights of ancient Rome such as the Colosseum, the Forum, the Pantheon and the Palatine Hill are fundamental in understanding the magnitude of the Roman Empire. The Baroque treasures of Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish steps are most enchanting and of course, just across the River Tiber, you will find the wonders of the Vatican including St Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel.
Rome: As well as its incredible history, Rome is very much a city of the present with a pulsating energy which leaves its mark on every visitor.
