View Full Itinerary

One of our most popular escorted tours of Italy takes you on a two-week journey inside the heart of cities, towns and countryside.

Along Europe's Scenic "Yellow Roads"

Think of Italy and a host of images comes to mind... the glories of Rome, taking shape in the now silent roars of the Colosseum, priceless works of art by Michelangelo and other famed Italian artists whose masterpieces eternally evoke awe in Europe's greatest museums...

Discover bella Italia on one of Tauck's most popular journeys... in scenic Tuscan hill towns, centuries-old cities and countryside villages, and along the Amalfi Coast… in the treasures of Florence, coloring an era of enlightenment with a rich palette of paintings and architecture by Renaissance luminaries like da Vinci, Botticelli and Brunelleschi... along saltwater roads in Venice lined with magnificent palaces frozen in time... in sun-dappled Tuscan villages, medieval icons reigning over vineyard-draped landscapes that produce wines and foods that are regionally inspired, locally flavored and ultimately delizioso... and on an after-hours guided visit to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel for an extraordinary look at ageless masterpieces – without the crowds – during a three-night stay in the Eternal City...

A wine tasting and chocolate demo in Umbria

Days 6 and 7

Sample the best of Umbria with a wine tasting and a chocolate making demonstration

Come with us to the wine-producing region of Umbria, dotted with ancient hill towns and cypresses. During a two-night stay at the peaceful Borgo dei Conti Resort on the outskirts of Perugia – set in what was once a fortified medieval village high above one of the region’s most beautiful valleys – enjoy a tasting of renowned local wines before dinner on your first evening. And on your second, discover the secrets of creating Perugia's most famous product in a hands-on chocolate making demonstration.

A trattoria lunch in Orvieto

Day 6

Enjoy lunch at a traditional trattoria in Orvieto

By definition, an Italian "trattoria" is an eatery that's a bit more formal than an "osteria" (which traditionally emphasize wine over the simple food they serve) but less formal than a "ristorante." In any case, the typical trattoria is a casual, welcoming establishment that serves plentiful portions of well-prepared local or regional specialties, often "family style" and without a printed menu. While visiting the Umbrian hill town of Orvieto, you'll enjoy a traditional lunch at just such a place – a trattoria about which one guest said, "the ambiance is rustic and down to earth... I almost felt like I was in someone's welcoming home dining room..."

The Westin Excelsior, Florence

Nights 9, 10 and 11

Enjoy your own personal Renaissance at The Westin Excelsior, Florence

The Westin Excelsior, Florence is an undisputed masterpiece in its own right: a stunning Renaissance palace with cutting-edge contemporary interiors, flawlessly paired with unique Renaissance features. The perfect mix of style and design, each of its guest rooms and suites is beautifully decorated in period style, offering a taste of Florentine tradition. No wonder it’s been voted one of the 500 best hotels in the world by the readers of Travel + Leisure…
