The cobwebbed canals of Venice await – enchanting and exquisite the city is a showstopper. Traverse the atmospheric waterways on board an elegant gondola; visit the stunning Doge’s Palace or sip a glass of prosecco and watch the world go by at Piazza San Marco.

Your final destination is the Eternal City of Rome. Explore streets steeped in ancient history, where Byzantine mosaics grace church ceilings and cool catacombs slumber beneath your feet.
