Wine capital of the world
In Italy, the bustling cultural centres of Rome, Florence and Venice are perfectly balanced by rolling, verdant hills that capture a serene pastoral charm and produce some of the world's most beloved wines. You'll explore celebrated pockets of Italian countryside like the UNESCO World Heritage Site The Cinque Terre. On this in-depth Italian wine adventure you'll learn about Umbria's centuries-old agricultural traditions in the wine and olive oil museums, embark on a day excursion to Montalcino with a local expert to taste the wine and learn of its process, and you'll taste Piedmont's most famous wines. Your wine indulgence will be paired with exquisite dining, including four 3-course dinners.
Italy's celebrated cities
With trips through Rome, Florence, Venice and Verona you'll witness the romance, history, art and intrigue of Italy's biggest cities. In Rome, examine the priceless art collection in the Vatican Museums before sweeping your gaze upwards at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, and channel the energy of the Eternal City with a visit to the Forum and the Coliseum. In Florence, pause to admire the oppulent Medici Chapels before walking to Signoria Square - the political heartbeat of the city bursting with Renaissance sculpture. Your time in Verona will introduce you to tragic love with a trip to Juliet's balcony, and true romance will find you on a trip through the canals of Venice.
From Tuscan villas to Roman rooftops
Centrally located, thoughtful hotels are an integral part of an Insight Vacations itinerary. Soak up the dynamic energy of Rome from a hotel in the Veneto area with a spectacular roof that looks out over the city. Your home in Torgiano will be a wine resort and spa, where cuisine and wellness are perfectly paired in a romantic, rustic setting, while your villa in Tuscany shrouds you in 60,000 square metres of serence landscape. Other accommodations include a restored farmhouse overlooking the Piedmont countryside, the only 5-star hotel in Parma, and an elegant villa built in 1743 - a popular retreat for celebrities and politicians.
