From the gondola-filled canals and Venetian masks of Venice to the pastel-hued vineyards and rolling hills of Tuscany, this three-week tour across Italy showcases life through the lens of a Local Expert. Journey along the Italian Riviera to the ancient city of Pompeii—preserved in time after the Mount Vesuvius eruption of AD79. Walk the ancient, cobbled streets before exploring the nearby paradise of Positano, an exclusive artist’s paradise on the Amalfi coast. In the lush surrounds of the Italian Lake District, take to the waters on the Isola Bella Cruise, setting sail for Lake Maggiore’s beautiful Borromean Islands. In Florence, pause to enjoy a wine and olive oil tasting, followed by a Tuscan cooking lesson, all set against a backdrop of vineyards and olive groves.
