Tailor-Made

No other country has an artistic heritage quite on a par with Italy. A disproportionate amount of the world’s greatest artists were Italian. Truman Capote likened being in Venice to “eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.” You’ll find so much extraordinary beauty in Italy, and much of it is manmade. What other country has built a city on stilts in a lagoon?

On this itinerary, you’ll discover the beauty of Italy’s great art cities, Venice, Florence and Rome.
