tour details

TOUR OVERVIEW

Take a look inside the two cultures that unanimously shaped western civilization. Walkthrough the backdrops of ancient mythology and in the footsteps of emperors as you make your way through Italy and Greece’s most iconic cities and legendary landscapes. Begin in the city known as the “cradle of democracy” – Athens. Then sail away for some sun and fun in the Greek islands. Explore the islands on your own or take a shore excursion. Rome is one of the world’s most photogenic cities – not surprising when you remember what you will find here– the Vatican, the Coliseum, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, St. Peter’s Square and Spanish Steps. To complete your trip, spend two nights in the capital city of Tuscany – Florence – with its abundance of cultural sites and some of the most incredible collections of paintings known to man.
