Friday 30th March – Cinque Terre & Pisa
Benvenuti in Italia! Welcome to Italy! Today we will explore the Italian Riviera and spend time at the UNESCO World Heritage site Cinque Terre! The Cinque Terre is one of Italy’s most captivating landscapes. Translated as ‘five lands,’ it consists of five unique fishing villages that line the Italian Riviera. We will park the coach at La Spezia situated only a couple of minutes from Riomaggiore (one of the five lands) and from there you will have to take the local train (not included) to as many of the five lands as you wish!
The ‘Path of Love’ is where you need to go to get the best views Cinque Terre has to offer. Afterwards, why not relax on the beach with a piña colada in Monterosso before making your way back to the coach.
In the afternoon, we will continue our journey to Pisa where we will check out the famous leaning tower. After the mandatory photos, we return to the coach and head to our accommodation in Rome, check-in to the rooms, have a bite to eat and then hang out at the pub!
Saturday 31st March – Rome & Vatican
In the morning, our coach will drop us off in Vatican City and then you will have free time to explore the smallest country in the world, Vatican City. Be sure to check out the Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basilica. As we will be there in the morning, we will be able to avoid the queues! After a couple of hours, you will have time to see the capital, Rome, undoubtedly one the most beautiful cities in the world. Visited every year by millions of tourists from around the world, must-see sights and some of its hidden treasures of the Eternal city are the Pantheon & the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona and of course the Colosseum.
Sunday 1st April – Naples & Pompeii
On Sunday, you can either explore more of Rome or come with us to visit the birthplace of pizza, Naples and visit the ancient city of Pompeii, one of Italy’s most popular tourist attractions (optional extra). Today, you will be able to sample authentic Neapolitan pizza and hear how the city of Pompeii lay buried under a sea of volcanic ash from Mt Vesuvius.
Monday 2nd April (public holiday) – Florence
After breakfast, we will leave Rome and make our way to Florence. You will have 9 hours free time to visit the famous Duomo cathedral, sip on a glass of Chianti wine & take in the beauty of the city.
