About This Trip

Get ready to explore quintessential Italy on this adventure from Rome, through the rolling countryside of Tuscany to experience the true gems of this region in the heart of the country. 

 

Italy is one of the most densely highlight-packed countries on earth. The cities are simply incredible, awe-inspiring architecture effortlessly blends with a rich history of art, culture and gastronomy to create a memorable experience with every step. The countryside that links them is inspiring, rolling Tuscan hills crowned with extraordinary towns, and dramatic coastlines that fall away to the glittering deep-turquoise seas below.  

 

Your adventure begins in Rome, the eternal city, where you have three days to immerse yourself in the glorious culture, lose yourself in the winding streets, crammed with architectural wonder and marvel at the big tickets, the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Roman Forum…..there are genuinely just so many! After you tear yourself away from Italy’s beautiful capital city, you will board your first train, and take a stunning journey through the undulating hills of Tuscany, spotting many of its famous hill-towns as you make your way to one of the most exquisite cities on earth, Florence. 

 

As well as some time to explore Florence, you will be taken on a half day to Chianti, famed for its delicious local produce. Here, you will visit a local family-run vineyard and after touring its jaw-dropping location, you will indulge in a wine tasting, accompanied by mouthwatering local produce. 

 

And, as if this was not enough, you then head to the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Cinque Terre. With your included Park Card, you will be able to jump on and off the local rail service that links the five colourful villages that cling to the cliffs above the Adriatic Sea. It is hard to put into words the beauty of this part of Italy, the rugged trails that link the villages, resplendent in verdant greens, clashing perfectly with the rich blue of the sea. Sitting with an ice-cold glass of white, feasting on freshly caught seafood as the sun sets, leaving you with a warm, tranquil night in these cobbled, colourful towns. Sheer heaven.

Other Info
highlights

There are so many big highlights on this trip. Just visiting Rome and Florence, you are going to have your mind blown at the sheer volume of historical buildings, and not just old ruins either! 

 

However, the hidden highlight of this trip is discovering Italy ‘on your own.’ Almost every little town and village is worth visiting, never mind the incredible cities, so we wanted to create a tour that was more than just a tour. We wanted to create an adventure, to instil that thrill of exploration, of travelling, but with absolutely no hassles. So, we linked up the finest spots in the whole country using the Italian National Rail service. This way you get to travel like a local, to see everyday Italian life and mix with the locals, rather than completely from the window of a coach. 

 

This style of travel extends to the inclusion of a 48hour Cinque Terre Park Card, which gives you access to the trains that link the UNESCO World Heritage 5 towns, so you can walk a trail to one and get the train home, or on to the next town.

 

location

Your trip starts off in the capital city of Italy, the irrepressible Rome where you will spend three glorious nights to really get a feel for the Eternal City. Then, as your hotels are all located close to the rail station, you will walk over to Roma Termini station and jump on board your train for the day. This will trundle leisurely through the incredible scenery of Tuscany before dropping you off in the renaissance city of Florence. Here you will get time to explore and be taken out to indulge in the gastronomic delights of Chianti, before finishing off the trip with some time in Monterosso al Mare, the biggest town on the wonderful Cinque Terre.
