Overview

Italian Treasures

“Wherefore art thou, Romeo?” Who can resist uttering these words in medieval Verona, the romantic setting for Shakespeare’s tragic love story? But thoughts will soon shift to Roman ruins, medieval towns, floating cities and gastronomic delights. All of these treasures and more are right here on this sparkling tour of Italy. Filled with the country’s famous jewels and hidden gems, this dazzling tour leads you from Rome to Venice and back again, with time in the sultry Italian Riviera, vineyard-dotted Tuscany, and neighboring picturesque Umbria, Tuscany’s “gentler sister.” Savor a boat ride along the dramatic Cinque Terre coastline with its pastel-colored fishing villages, stroll through the serene streets of Assisi, and sip Chianti in a Tuscan cantina. Michelangelo’s David, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the perfectly preserved medieval town of San Gimignano are more reasons this tour of Italy truly shines.

A generous breakfast buffet is served each morning in the informal breakfast room and there is an elegant bar serving cocktails and other drinks in a classically appointed room with marble floors and frescoed walls and ceilings. Free Wi-Fi access is available in all public areas and guestrooms. Florence Piazza Santa Maria Novella 8 First-Class
4 Indigo Venice Sant'Elena The lush green Sant'Elena neighborhood in Venice has the feel of a sleepy Italian village, yet it's within easy reach of the city's most famed attractions. Housed in an ancient building (formerly a convent) which has maintained its grand-scale architecture with room décor inspired by warm, Byzantine colors or cooler tones evocative of the sea, the hotel reflects the unique mix of culture, character, and setting of the neighborhood. All 75 guestrooms are equipped with every comfort and marked by the attention to detail of a boutique hotel. The spa-style bathrooms, equipped with rainfall-like showerheads and quality bathroom amenities account for a refreshing invigorating stay. The hotel is both secluded enough to allow for quiet time and equally very central to enjoy the Venetian lifestyle of little restaurants, cafes, and piazzas. While the distance between Sant'Elena and the bustling Piazza San Marco is easily bridged via vaporetto (water taxi), the two neighborhoods can feel like entirely different cities. The location is also within easy reach of the 11-km stretch of golden beaches on the island of Lido. Venice Calle Buccari 10 First-Class
5 Cenacolo Hotel Cenacolo Assisi is a structure created from the accurate and careful renovation of an old Franciscan convent, located in Santa Maria degli Angeli, a short distance from the Porziuncola of St. Francis.

The hotel offers in-house restaurants with exquisite options for both lunch and dinner. The main attractions of the capital are within easy reach, such as the Colosseum, the Imperial Forums, and the Spanish Steps. Fiumicino Airport is a 30-minute drive away, while Termini Railway Station is just 25 minutes away. Rome Via della Nocetta, 105, Roma RM First-Class
