Get to know Florence and Venice on a 4-night tour from Rome! With guided tours of each city plus plenty of free time to relax, the package is perfect for experiencing the best of these two incredible Italian cities. An additional visit is also included to Pisa (March 1- November 15 only) for a walking tour of Cathedral Square, seeing the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa and Duomo di Pisa. Four nights of 3-, 4- or 4-star superior hotel accommodation– two nights in both Florence and Venice – is included plus transport by coach or train from once city to the next.

The tour finishes in Venice, making it an ideal option if you want to spend longer in one of the world’s most romantic cities.

Florence and Venice are two of Italy’s cultural giants, with more beautiful architecture, monuments and simple appeal than most other European cities put together. While your guide shows off their individual delights on city walking tours, you’ll also enjoy ample free time to enjoy even more of them. Activities and entrance fees are payable at your own expense, but if you’re a fan of museums, then Florence’s Accademia and Uffizi galleries are well worth a visit. Although Venice has fewer museums as its Tuscan counterpart, the city itself makes up for it, and exploring its canals and atmospheric streets is like taking a step back into time. Admire its handsome Gothic churches dotted around the canals, or perhaps take a gondola ride to explore the city in a way that only befits Venice (own expense).

Between visits to these two cities, an additional trip to Pisa is included so you can see the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa. The tower is shut between November 16 and February 28, so if you’re traveling during these dates then you can visit the nearby Tuscan towns of Siena and San Gimignano (at your own expense), instead.

Please note: The listed price does not include a city tax, payable at the time of hotel check-in. The tax is required by the hotels and is not within our control.
