This ultimate city break lets you discover Italy’s three most iconic cities in just one trip.
Start your trip in style with a couple of nights in glamorous Venice. A popular haunt for celebrities and aristocrats for years, this city will not disappoint. Guide yourself through the maze of Venice’s back-streets, stop for a coffee in St. Mark’s Square where you’ll often be able to enjoy a live performance and be sure to visit the Golden Basilica and Doge’s Palace. If you have time, we recommend taking a short boat ride to Murano where the city’s famous glass factories are located. You’ll get to see a glass-blowing demonstration and have the opportunity to shop for souvenirs.
Just a short, high-speed train journey away is the Renaissance city of Florence. Tuscany’s capital is a compact city that’s full of stunning architecture, revered artwork and fantastic food. Brunelleschi’s dome dominates the skyline and a trip to the top is a must-do for stunning views. Art lovers will be in their element with the Ufizzi and Accademia galleries to explore with the largest collection of Renaissance masterpieces in the world. Make sure to stroll along the River Arno, shop in the stalls that line the Ponte Vecchio Bridge and head to Mercato Centrale to sample some famous Tuscan cuisine.
