Day 1 Back in time to ancient & Renaissance Rome, Meals - D

Tour begins: 2:00 PM at The Westin Excelsior, Rome.
Welcome to Rome, where your family's Italy tour to the ancient world (and beyond) begins; a transfer is included from Leonardo da Vinci Airport in Fiumicino to The Westin Excelsior, Rome. Your adventure starts with a guided visit to St. Peter's Square and the Basilica. Join your fellow family travelers tonight for a welcome reception and dinner featuring authentic Italian fare that whets your appetite for a fun-filled Italy tour.
Lodging - The Westin Excelsior, Rome

Day 2 Inside Rome's antiquities and after-hours visit to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, Meals - B

Drive through the heart of the city to see real-life relics of Imperial Rome, once capital of the ancient world. Walk through one of the Colosseum's 80 entrances, imagining what it was like for ancient gladiators and the Roman crowds who piled into this famous arena to see them, and pose for pictures with Roman Centurions. See the temples and basilicas of the Roman Forum, nerve center of the ancient empire. This evening, join us for a very special after-hours visit to the Vatican Museums, full of fascinating history and artistic masterpieces. View Michelangelo's famous ceiling in the Sistine Chapel – which the artist originally resisted doing because he considered himself a sculptor, not a painter – without the usual crowds! (Subject to availability and day of visit may vary.)
Lodging - The Westin Excelsior, Rome

Day 3 Through Orvieto's tunnels and Tuscany's hills to Florence, Meals - B, D

Discoveries abound on your Italy tour adventure today as your family sets off through rural Umbria and Tuscany. The first stop on your travels is walled Orvieto, perched on a volcanic plateau; a guided tour takes you under its cobblestone streets to explore the town's honeycombed medieval tunnels, and caves dating back to the time of the ancient Etruscans. Then it's on to Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance, where you'll check out Michelangelo's famed statue of David and other great works at the Galleria dell'Accademia, the oldest art school in the world. Arrive at your luxury hotel, steps away from the Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, for a memorable three-night stay.

Day 4 Insights from an art historian, the Leaning Tower in Pisa & an evening free in Florence, Meals - B, L

To start your day, a local art historian shares family-friendly insights about the Renaissance and Florence's pivotal role in it. Then an excursion from Florence takes you to Pisa for a look at this maritime city's great medieval buildings – including a glimpse of the remarkable Leaning Tower and more of Pisa's "field of miracles," such as the Duomo and the Baptistry. After lunch at a local restaurant, return to Florence for an evening spent as you please, and have dinner on your own in one of this grand Renaissance city's many restaurants.

Day 5 A day at the Uffizi and a night making pizza, Meals - B, D

More great Renaissance art awaits in Florence today as you join your local guide for a tour of one of the world's best art galleries – the Uffizi Gallery – where you'll see masterpieces galore, including Michelangelo's painting of The Holy Family and Botticelli's The Birth of Venus. Tonight, join us for dinner and a hands-on pizza-making demonstration at a popular local restaurant in Florence.

Day 6 Via high-speed train to Venice, St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace & more , Meals - B, L

A first-class rail journey aboard a high-speed train takes your family to Venice, a city of islands where the roads are paved with water, and a treasured memory of any Italy tour. Ride a private boat to your hotel – set right on the Grand Canal – and have lunch on the canal, followed by a guided walking tour of massive St. Mark's Square, and guided visits to St. Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace. Later, a musician serenades your family as you ride in a gondola, traveling through the canals as the Venetians have done for centuries! Tonight is free to explore as you please and enjoy dinner on your own in Venice.
Lodging - The Westin Europa & Regina, Venice

Day 7 Mask-making, a farewell party and more in beautiful Venice , Meals - B, D

Venetians are mad about their masks... and the making of these exquisite decorations is a centuries-old tradition here. You're in for a real treat as you meet skilled local artisans who will turn papier-maché into colorful, fanciful Venetian masks before your very eyes! And if there is any city in Europe that is perfect for just wandering, seeing and experiencing, it is Venice – and you'll have the chance to do just that for the rest of the day. Follow the small, cobbled streets and alleyways to see where they lead, visit a museum or sample some gelato (served warmer and creamier than traditional ice cream). Tonight, we'll all meet again for a farewell party at your hotel on the Grand Canal, as your family's memorable Italy tour adventure draws to a spectacular close.
Lodging - The Westin Europa & Regina, Venice

Day 8 Homeward bound, Meals - B

Your family's unforgettable Italy tour ends: Venice. Arrivederci! Fly home anytime. A transfer is included from The Westin Europa & Regina, Venice to Venice's Marco Polo Airport; allow a minimum of 3 hours for flight check-in.
