2018: 3 Nights Rome, 3 Nights Florence, 3 Nights Venice & 3 Nights Lake Maggiore (DIX)

13 days from Rome to Lake Maggiore

Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck once enjoyed a Roman Holiday filled with romance and fun, and now you can too! Plus, on this vacation, you'll also visit Florence, Venice & Lake Maggiore-and Monograms makes it easy! This 13-day vacation includes three nights at centrally located hotels in each city; buffet breakfast daily, sightseeing with an expert local guide in each city, transportation between cities, transfers to/from the train stations, and materials on each city. Also, you'll have a Local Host in each city, a one-of-a-kind feature offered only by Monograms. Your Local Host is a friend in the city-someone who can answer questions, give suggestions, help you personalize your vacation, and help make sure your vacation is all you want it to be.

Your vacation starts when you arrive in Rome, where your Local Host will meet you with materials to get you familiar with the city. The next day, after enjoying your included breakfast, you'll be picked up at your hotel for your guided sightseeing with an expert local guide. You'll hear insider stories and see the must-see sights: the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican Museums, and Sistine Chapel. In fact, your sightseeing in each city includes the sights you cannot go home without seeing: Santa Croce Square and Michelangelo's David in Florence; St. Mark's Square and Basilica, Doges' Palace, and the Bridge of Sighs in Venice; and a boat ride to Isola Bella in Lake Maggiore. But that's not all?your sightseeing includes VIP access to the sights, so you can skip the lines. Time is short, so why waste it with the other tourists in line when you can be gazing at Michelangelo's ceiling paintings, hearing insider stories about the gladiatorial fights held at the Colosseum, and shopping for jewelry at Florence's Ponte Vecchio? You know a vacation is meant for exploring and enjoying-not standing in line! And don't worry, we know the perfect place to capture a photo of St. Peter's Square in Rome and the Duomo in Florence.

Time in each of these Italian cities gives you the opportunity to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host of course). Taste the sumptuous cuisine, shop for Italian goods, explore the stunning churches and museums, and participate in optional excursions, such as an outing to Pisa and Lucca from Florence, an underground tour in Rome, and a gondola serenade in Venice. In Lake Maggiore, be sure to enjoy the picturesque lakefront and colorful flowerbeds. Perhaps take the Mottarone Cable Car for panoramic views over seven lakes and the Alps.

And don't forget?your Monograms package includes first-class transportation between each city via high-speed train. Plus, we escort you to/from the train stations and help you get on the correct train-always a plus in Italy, where the train stations are notoriously confusing for non-Italian speakers. So all you have to do is sit back and relax as you see the beautiful countryside and towns dotting the landscape.
