Visit landmarks of the past, taste authentic cuisine and more as you explore the cities of Rome, Venice and Florence on our Italy guided tours.

Along Europe's Scenic "Yellow Roads"

All roads lead to Rome... They wind toward the Eternal City from Venice, labyrinthine city of art, romance, and palazzo-lined waterways... or to Florence, hip center of fashion, finance and culture, where Gucci, da Vinci, the Renaissance, and gold currency were born... They are the backroads that embark on a sojourn through the vineyards of Tuscany, sampling wine and local cuisine... They arrive at the hub of the Ancient World, in the heart of the modern metropolis, close to the Colosseum, the Appian Way and the Vatican, to discover the glories of Rome... And in today’s modern Italy, the roads are joined by high-speed rail that closes the distance and makes the most of your time... a journey of timeless pleasures

First Class train rides from Venice to Florence and Rome reveal Italy’s history in just one week... scripted in golden mosaics inside St. Mark’s Basilica... etched into art in the Uffizi... poured in Tuscan wines aged in a 4th-century abbey cellar... sculpted in the arched walls of the Roman Colosseum, still echoing ancient roars... and frescoed with astonishing splendor in the Vatican Museums. Take a walking tour of Venice with a local guide introducing St. Mark’s Basilica and the 14th-century Doge’s Palace. Meet Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli and other Renaissance artists at the Uffizi Gallery. Attend a wine-pairing lunch, with a taste of locally produced olive oil and cellar-aged Sangiovese wines. In Rome, go to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel after hours – no lines, no waiting... Read Less

First Class, high-speed train travel between cities

Days 3 and 6

Travel First Class aboard a high-speed train between the cities of Venice, Florence and Rome

During your journey, you'll travel in First Class between Italy's great cities of Venice, Florence and Rome aboard Italy's network of modern, high-speed intercity trains. Thanks to Italy's high-tech rail infrastructure, the country's high-speed trains connect many of Italy's major cities, including the three you'll be exploring. There are several high-speed train networks across the country, such as Trenitalia's Alta Velocità (AV) trains. Whichever line you're traveling aboard, Italy's high-speed trains are fast, efficient, and fun... and with Tauck, you'll ride FIRST CLASS!

Tauck Exclusive – After-hours at the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel

Day 7

Explore the treasures of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel... without the crowds

Founded by Pope Julius II in the early 1500s, the Vatican Museums display classical and religious works of art collected by the Popes throughout the centuries. Combined with the Sistine Chapel, they’re visited by around six million people a year, ranking among the most-visited art museums in the world. On your Tauck Exclusive, after-hours, guided visit, you'll explore the Candelabra Gallery, the Map Gallery, the Tapestries, and the Sistine Chapel… all without the usual crowds. So you’ll be able to take your time to contemplate the inspirational treasures before you – including the spectacular biblical frescoes on the ceiling, which took Michelangelo four years to paint, standing on a scaffold... and changed the course of western art.

Hotel Bernini Palace

Nights 3, 4 and 5

Florentine luxury and prestige in a 15th-century palace behind Piazza della Signoria...

Overlooking Palazzo Vecchio at the center of Florentine as well as Italian art and history – and set within a 15th-century palace just a stone’s throw from the River Arno – the Hotel Bernini Palace is now one of the most exclusive retreats in Florence, the "city of the Renaissance."

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures, averaging just 24 guests, are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy.
