The capital city of Rome is Italy's masterwork. Marvel at the Colosseum, Vatican City and Roman Forum with just a few days in the city. Away from the well worn paths, Rome has plenty of surprise up its sleeve. Dive into tangled medieval neighbourhoods like Trastevere for narrow trattoria-lined streets and hidden chapels.
Mysterious canals, golden squares, waterside palaces - it's a wonder that Venice is billed as the most romantic city on earth. A city for the curious, getting lost in Venice is half the fun. Time-worn streets lead you past tiny pizzerias and shops hung with Venetian masks.
The Tuscan capital of Florence is a city made by art lovers for art lovers. The Renaissance took it's first steps here painting the city with architectural wonders like the Palazzo Pitti and Uffizi Gallery. Explore Florence's other love - food. Finish off your day with a Florentine steak and glass of Chianti straight from the Tuscan countryside.
Visitors to Verona never fail to be entranced by its beauty and relaxed atmosphere. Verona is best known of course for its historic Roman arena which every summer hosts the world famous opera programme.
As well as being the fashion capital of Italy, they say Milan has the best opera house in the world. Teatro Alla Scala, aka La Scala, opened in 1778 and Maria Callas and Luciano Pavarotti are just two of the famous opera singers to have graced its hallowed stage.
