The Best Places of Italy Tour - this is a mixed tour

  • Share friends:
Is magical Italy calling? You’d love to go but just don’t know where to start?

We think we’ve designed the best tour of Italy to the places we love – and we’d love to share them with you.

Our small group escorted tour to Italy (of up to only 12) will experience: Rome – with its stunning monuments and history, the Amalfi Coast – with spectacular Positano, and picturesque Tuscany along with Chianti and Florence.  Our small group tour to Italy is perfect for those wanting to experience it all without breaking the bank or being just a number of a bus.  All the hard work is done and organised so all you need to do is to sit back and thoroughly enjoy your Italian holiday.

We travel to Italy and stay  longer in the places we visit so there is no constant packing and unpacking, no early starts racing to have your luggage on the bus, no sitting on a bus for hours on end, no boring and bland tour food.  Our tours to Italy are well paced allowing you to taste, smell and savour the amazing cuisine and wine.

So if you’ve always wondered what it would be like to stand in the Sistine Chapel (with an early entry and before the crowds), stroll through the streets of Pompei, savour a glass of Chianti in a deserted piazza, travel around the Amalfi coast by boat and view Michelangelo’s David –  then join us!

3 nights Rome  
3 nights Positano (Amalfi coast)
3 nights Chianti (Tuscany)
3 nights Florence

Welcome to Bella Roma! Settle in to your wonderful hotel where just a few steps away is one of the most iconic buildings in the world, the Pantheon, relax after your long journey and enjoy the surroundings of this most beautiful city. Early evening we meet for a La Dolce Vita Stroll before venturing out for a delicious Rome meal.
Welcome dinner with wine


We are specialists in small group 'Tours of Italy'

Day 2 - Emperors and Gladiators tour

In this private tour of the Colosseum, we will have 'skip the line' tickets to discover ancient Rome. We walk in the path of the Gladiators and discover this amazing structure that has stood the test of time for 2,000 years and hear of its bloody history. We also discover the Roman Forum, Capitoline Hill and Venice Square. We'll walk back to our hotel through some lovely piazzas where you might like to enjoy a delicious lunch with an ancient backdrop.

We have early morning tickets to the Vatican - before the crowds. We will visit the Vatican and discover the priceless treasures of the Vatican museums and wonder at the genius of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel – with an expert Vatican guide, of course. In the afternoon, you might decide to further explore Vatican city or take in the other wonderful attractions and galleries in the historical area.
Breakfast

Day 4 - Positano and Pompeii

We travel to Pompeii where we will have our expert guide to explain how daily life was disrupted in this Roman town in 79AD when Mt Vesuvius decided to awaken and destroy everything in its path. Bread still in the ovens ready for a mid day lunch, walking the streets can be a little eerie. We can peek into homes and shops and also read graffiti telling us so much of the daily life. We travel to our next adventure, the beautiful Positano where, perched high above the water, the houses seem to defy gravity and are a picture brilliantly painted against a stunning ocean backdrop. Tonight we enjoy dinner overlooking the gorgeous and picturesque town of Positano - the prettiest town on the Amalfi coast.
Breakfast and dinner with wine

Day 5 - Positano

In the morning, spend some quiet time exploring the bustling village, have a pair of Positano sandals made just for you, sit for a coffee with a stunning view of the coastline, or just spend your time window shopping in the many wonderful boutiques. For lunch, at leisure, you might decide to travel to the next bay for a delicious meal of fresh seafood, caught that morning off the boat. This day is a day of relaxation in the centre of the most stunning town on the Amalfi coast.
Breakfast

Day 6 – Positano A day discovering the Amalfi coast on the water

A fabulous day on the Amalfi coast! Our boat will take us along the stunning Amalfi coast where we will discover the most attractive bays for swimming along with the inlets and grottoes. We pass in front of Praiano, the fiord of Furore and Conca dei Marini to discover the emerald grotto. We might even have time to discover the towns of Amalfi and Atrani and enjoy a lunch in the main piazza. (Sometimes we visit the Isle of Capri by boat to tour around the island instead of along the coast).
Breakfast

Day 7 – Florence

We take the fast train to Tuscany - sometimes reaching 300 kms per hour - a very quick trip. After settling in to our hotel you might like to take a casual stroll around the streets of Florence, the town where Leonardo and Michelangelo called home. This place is a shopper's paradise with gorgeous leather, something to tempt everyone. There are also a myriad of galleries and museums to be discovered in Florence. Tonight we meet for a delightful discovery of Tuscan cuisine. This restaurant showcases the products for which Tuscany is famous.

This morning we enjoy a guided walking tour of Siena, visiting the magnificent Duomo, Piazza del Campo home of the famous Palio horse race. We can climb the tower or just sit in this magnificent square to drink in the medieval stmosphere which is still evident today. Our guide takes us to the districts of the Giraffe and the Turtle where we take a peek into the churches and museums detailing the history of these small communities which come out in force when the Palio is staged.

The rich tapestry of experiences and the characters you meet along the way will make this tour of Italy something special.
