About Italy Tours

Greet the lovely lands of Italy with a loud “Ciao” upon your arrival into Rome or Venice on your Italy River Cruise! As the birthplace of the Renaissance, Italy is characterized partly by the innovations in politics, science, art, architecture, and literature derived during this cultural and intellectual movement.  It is also the land of Michelangelo, Dante, Verdi, and Armani, boasting big names in art, poetry, opera, and fashion. And then there’s the food:  Italy is home to luscious vineyards and glorious regional delicacies. On an Italy River Cruise, you will have the opportunity to sail through the calm waters and experience Italy’s charming cities.

In Rome, you will find yourself in the Piazza Venezia, the square in the heart of the country’s capital.  You may visit the Roman Forum, the Circus Maximus stadium, and the Arch of Constantine. The Colosseum, an architectural wonder, is a surviving monument from the classical world of gladiator games.  You may also visit Vatican City and discover the Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s Basilica. The beauty of Florence can be seen in the vineyards and olive groves that decorate this Tuscan capital, but it also has an artistic heritage. The Academy Gallery where Michelangelo’s famous sculpture of David can be found, the Romanesque town hall Palazzo Vecchio, and the Piazza Del Duomo where the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Ghiberti’s bronze masterpiece, Gates of Paradise reside, can all be found in Florence.  The gondola-filled canals in Venice are a striking sight. Take a leisurely voyage down Venice’s Grand Canal and view the historical buildings and palazzos. Visit the 11th century St. Mark’s Basilica, the famous plaza Piazza San Marco, and the glass studios.

Discover the literary home of Romeo and Juliet in Verona, see the Leaning Tower in Pisa, marvel at the mosaic-embellished churches in Serravalle, and experience the chic boutiques and cafes on the Isle of Capri.  In Bologna, the culinary capital of Northern Italy, participate in a pasta workshop and truly appreciate the flavours of parmegiano, tortellini, prosciutto, and of course, Bolognese sauce. 

Sip on a glass of prosecco as you gently sail along your Italy River Cruise.  Take part in wine and olive-oil tasting or a dessert making demonstration of your choice, and learn about the many historical and cultural facets of Italy.  Review the itineraries and call one of our travel agents for more information.
