Agents will also visit the historic towns of Assisi and Siena, the latter of which is home to Piazza del Campo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lovers of art will appreciate a stop in the city of Florence — the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and the site of Brunelleschi’s iconic dome, the Campanile towers and the Basilica of Santa Croce. Other highlights include stops in Bologna, Padua and Italy’s “Floating City” of Venice. Once back in Rome, guests can experience a guided tour of the Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica with exclusive “skip the line” access. The price of the trip includes all transfers and sightseeing, accommodations and some meals.
