Wonders of Northern Italy Escorted Tour


Begin your journey to northern Italy in the town of Assisi, known for its association with St Francis, the humble saint who was known for his great love of animals. Onward to Siena, known for its Palio horse race, but also for its sweets made by the local nuns. Continue to Florence via Padua, a university town and one of the oldest cities in northern Italy, known as the setting for the Taming of the Shrew. Investigate some of the most famous works of art in Florence, and then enjoy many photo opportunities in Italy’s unique city built on water, gorgeous Venice. After surveying the city’s most famous landmarks, the Doge’s Palace, St Mark’s Basilica and the Bridge of Sighs, learn the secrets of Italian glass making at a local glass factory. Later, stop at another city associated with Shakespeare, Verona, the setting for the most famous love story of all, Romeo and Juliet. End your travels in the striking northern Lake District. Stroll waterside along tranquil Lake Garda before traveling on to luxurious Lake Como, where George Clooney owns one of the beautiful lakeside villas.
