Itinerary

Day 1

Benvenuto and welcome to ‘la dolce vita’ or the ‘the good life’ of Italy! Rome awaits you and upon arrival, you will be transferred from the airport and into the Eternal City.

After checking into your hotel and freshening up a bit, you will meet with your new travel buddies and head to a local restaurant for a 3-course welcome dinner where you will toast to adventures to come!

Overnight in Rome

Arrival: Fly into Rome–Fiumicino International Airport International Airport (FCO). TrovaTrip will provide 3 transfers between 11am and 5pm.

Included: Airport Transfer, Welcome Dinner


Day 2

Buongiorno! Wake up to your first morning in the old world. After breakfast, you will head out to the streets of Rome.

One of the best ways to explore the ancient backstreets of Rome is on the saddle of a bicycle. Your guide will help fit you for a bike, pop on a helmet, and go exploring. The Eternal City is teeming with ancient ruins and religious moments but still has a pulsing modern edge that is packed with cafe life, restaurants, shops, and nightlife. Your cycle tour will not only show you the traditional side of the city but will also take you off the beaten path. The tour will conclude in a local restaurant for a rewarding 3-course menu after the morning cycle.

After having some time to relax from cycling and lunch, you will join a local chef for a pasta-making course. Along with pizza, is there any other type of food that is as synonymous with culture as the Italian’s and their pasta? In Italy, there are over 50 varieties of pasta and tonight your chef will lead a workshop on how to prepare a few types by hand.

Overnight in Rome

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Cycle Tour Rome, Pasta Making Class


Day 3

No trip to Rome is complete without visiting the smallest country in the world, the Vatican. At only 19 square miles and a population of just over 800, the tiny city-state easily wins this claim.

Your guide will lead you through a comprehensive tour of the Vatican, beginning with the Vatican Museum. This experience will give you a real insight into Vatican City, from the ancient sculptures to the Raphael Rooms, and of course to the piece de la resistance, the Sistine Chapel.

The afternoon is free and at leisure to sip espressos or wander through the streets. If you’re feeling thirsty, there will be an optional Wine Tasting offered.

The optional wine tasting will be lead by a professional Italian sommelier. They will not only give you a master class on wines but also a bit of geography as you will be tasting wines from the north, central, and south regions of Italy. All paired with snacks of course.

Overnight in Rome

Included: Breakfast, Tour of Vatican City & the Sistine Chapel

Optional: Wine Tasting with an Italian Sommelier


Day 4

This morning, after breakfast, you will hop on a train and head to the cultural heart of Tuscany, the magical city of Florence.

You will check-in to your hotel and drop your bags before meeting with the group and guide for a walking tour of Florence.

The city of Florence is like a giant outdoor museum, bursting with Renaissance masterpieces and stylistically striking with architecture from the Renaissance, Gothic, and Baroque periods. On this tour, you will walk the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci, Machiavelli, Michelangelo, and the greats.

After getting acclimated to the city, you will have the evening at leisure to meander and discover on your own.

Overnight in Florence

Included: Breakfast, Train - Rome to Florence, Florence Walking Tour


Day 5

Today you will have the opportunity to sample the legendary cuisine of Tuscany directly from the source on a Tuscan Farm Experience.

In the late morning, you will transfer to a local Tuscan farm and visit its vineyards and olive groves. You will have the chance to feed the sheep, visit the wine cellars, and learn about how they produce their olive oil. You will taste their wines and pair them with olives, cheese, and homemade baked bread, all produced directly from the farm to your table.

After lunch, you will head back to Florence where you’ll have the rest of the afternoon and evening to explore this romantic city.

For the optional boat tour you'll hop aboard a ‘barchette’, and your local "barcaiolo" will gently steer you over the Arno River and back in time through Florence’s historical center of majestic palaces, stunning bridges and imposing towers.

Overnight in Florence

Included: Breakfast, Tuscan Farm Experience, Tuscan Farmer’s Lunch

Optional: Arno Boat Tour


Day 6

The morning is free and at leisure to do any last-minute sightseeing or shopping in Florence before heading back to Rome for a free afternoon to wander.

In the evening, you will meet with your travel buddies for a final farewell dinner, Roman style, where you will toast to an extraordinary adventure together.

Overnight in Rome

Included: Breakfast, Train - Florence to Rome, Farewell Dinner
