Classic Italy in Autumn:  Venice, Florence, Rome, Sorrento with Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast 2019 with Tina Dyer

"Italy in style" — that is the basic theme of this grand tour which will take us to some of the most beautiful and historically important locations on the Italian peninsula. The itinerary below reflects my own experiences of having led many groups to Italy over the past fifteen years as well as the collective wisdom of a group of sophisticated travelers at whose request I originally decided to run this trip.

This best-selling tour has been designed with quality in mind. None of the hotels are below four star standards and the property in Venice and Sorrento is of a deluxe category. Comfort is very important when traveling to Italy in the summer during high season. I strove to create an itinerary that will allow you to relax in charming surroundings while providing the opportunity to see an extensive amount of Italy in a limited period of time. While the first five days of the trip in Venice and Florence will no doubt be busy, the Rome and Sorrento modules of the tour are a bit slower, allowing you to absorb your environment and truly to experience the finest of Italian culture.

CLASSIC ITALY TOUR FEATURES 2019 -- This twelve day air-inclusive adventure will include round trip air to Venice with a return from Naples;  a private boat transfer from the Venice airport to our hotel;  two nights in the spectacular five star deluxe Hilton Molino Stucky (or similar)  with buffet breakfasts daily;  a half day guided sightseeing tour of Venice, including visits to Piazza San Marco, the Doges' Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Basilica of San Marco;  private motor coach transportation from Venice to Florence;  two nights in the  first class Hotel Londra (or Similar) with breakfasts daily;  a half day guided sightseeing tour of Florence, including a visit to the Academy of Fine Arts to see Michelangelo's David;  an optional half day guided sightseeing tour of Pisa, including a visit to the Leaning Tower; private motor coach transportation from Florence to Rome;  three nights in the first class Mediterraneo Hotel (or Similar) with breakfasts daily;  a half day guided sightseeing tour of the Roman Forum and the Coliseum;  a half day guided sightseeing tour of the Vatican Museums, including visits to the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica;  private motor coach transportation from Rome to Sorrento;  three nights in Sorrento in the four star Sorrento Hilton Hotel (or similar) with buffet breakfasts daily;  a half day guided sightseeing tour of Pompeii;  private motor coach transportation from Sorrento to the Naples airport;  a pre-departure orientation and dinner; and the services of a full-time professional local escort who is a specialist on Italian culture.
