Explore Ancient Rome on Day 1. Walk in the footsteps of Julius Caesar and visit the Colosseum and other ancient ruins. On Day 2, enjoy a visit to Vatican City. Marvel at St. Peter’s Basilica and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel in the Vatican Museums. And of course, no Exploring Europe tour would be complete without a great dining experience to end the day.

David McGuffin Explores: Florence!

Florence

Ride along with David as he takes the scenic route to Florence and stops at a vineyard in the Chianti region. Admire Florence from afar at San Miniato al Monte, a vantage point that is little-known to tourists. Then take a trip to the market to barter for a belt. Experience the city’s vast art collection with Paola, a local guide who brings a fresh perspective to Michelangelo’s famous statue of David and the works in the Uffizi Gallery. Finally, enjoy an evening stroll through the streets of Florence once all of the tourists have gone.

David McGuffin Explores: Venice!

VeniceVenice is unlike any other city in the world. The city blocks are separated by canals and the “subway” system is actually a network of boats. Tour Saint Mark’s Basilica with Roberta, a native Venetian, and learn about the city’s battle to stay afloat. Then head off the beaten path with David to get a feel for the lived-in part of Venice as he visits Sant’Elena. End your tour with a couple of David’s “must-do” attractions: take a ride in a gondola and spend a few hours at a café on Piazza San Marco.

Lake Como and MilanThe town of Bellagio on Lake Como is the perfect place to enjoy this beautiful lake and the surrounding mountains. Here you can tour the neighboring villas, explore countless little shops, or stop at a wine cellar to sample products from the local vineyards.
Milan is the final destination on the Best of Italy tour. Take a tour of the city, stop at the Cathedral and still have plenty of time to explore the shopping district.
