But if your time is limited, our nine-day Heart of Italy tour might be just right for you. Bur don't take our word for it, here's what some recent tour members have to say…


"This tour went way beyond our expectations. Each location was outstanding in and of itself. The scenery, history, architecture, people, and food, each so unique and awesome. Stopping in small towns along our tour route that were not listed was an added bonus."

Overview of ruins at the Roman Forum, Rome, Italy

"My wife and I just LOVED the Heart of Italy tour! From the big city experience of Rome to the seaside villages, to the music, food, and arts center of Florence, we just drank it all in and will never forget the experience. We will definitely visit Italy again!"

— Iliff, Heart of Italy tour member


"This was a wonderful tour! The combination of cities, such as Rome and Florence, and smaller towns in more rural areas gave me an appreciation of Italy's true essence. I especially liked the fact that we were given a lot of free time to explore on our own."

— Jill, Best of Italy Tour Member


Harbor kitty, Vernazza (Cinque Terre), Italy

View of Volterra, Italy

"Trip of a lifetime! Rome was magnificently crazy-paced. Volterra was absolutely everything you could ask for in the beauty of Tuscany. Cinque Terre was simplicity, beauty, soul-renewing. Florence was simply amazing."
