Planning on spending a little more time in Rome? Make sure you visit the Colosseum. With its long and fascinating history dating back to 70/80 AD stepping into the Colosseum is like stepping back into the past. Wander the underground tunnels and stage and immerse in the city's whirl winded past. To avoid ques, we recommend you book your tickets in advance. When in Rome, do as the Romans! Grab a quick lunch al fresco, roam the streets of this stunning city, indulge in real Italian gelato and don't forget to throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain for good luck!

The Spanish steps are walked on by millions of people annually. They’re even more beautiful during Spring when azaleas are growing on them. It’s the perfect place to have a gelato and people-watch or dive deep into your favourite book. 

For all the art lovers out there, you must make a quick pit stop at non-other than the Sistine Chapel. The Creation Of Adam and other frescoes featured in the chapel are some of Michelangelo’s most famous and most influential paintings. Definitely not to be missed.

Puglia

There is no other place in the whole world like Alberobello - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. People come here from all over the world just to wander the streets of this wonderful Puglian town. With its white-washed stone ‘Trulli’ houses clustered together throughout the town you will be even more in love with Italy’s charm. The best plan is to have no plan here in Alberobello. Wonder the streets to your heart’s content and follow your guide’s tips to make the most out of your time here. Enjoy a brunch outside at La Locanda del Gallo and the fantastic weather Italy has to offer. If you’re looking for a more authentic visit and want to interact with the locals we recommend a quick visit to the Rione Aia Piccola district, still occupied by the local families.

Looking for a picture-perfect location? Join your guide on an optional experience to the town of Ostuni. Ostuni features the most beautiful white washed walls which together with the stunning blue skies make the town even more charming and creating the perfect setting.

Puglia is a paradise for wine-lovers. Most Puglia’s wine is red and pairs well with a wide variety of foods. On your trip visit one of the many different wineyards that Puglia offers and enjoy a relaxing evening tasting some of the best wine you’ve ever had. For your dine-at-home experience, you’ll be welcomed into a local family's home. See Nonna, one of the best chefs in Puglia, making orecchiette pasta and join her for a traditional freshly prepared southern Italian meal. One taste of Nonna’s gnocci and you'll never want to come home!

Matera

Carved into the rock, Matera is composed of a network of inhabited caves. We firmly believe that Matera is Italy’s best kept secret, it’s a city of incredible beauty and tradition, where tourism has not yet taken over yet, and the history can be traced back further than in almost any other place in the world.

In this full of culture and history town you can visit some of the most interesting churches in the world. The Rupestrian churches were carved out in the Middle Ages and decorated with iconography, much of which is still visible today.

Capri Island

This might just be the most beautiful location on the whole trip. In the morning, join your Travel Director for an orientation. Cruise by jetfoil through the impossibly blue sea to the sun-drenched island of Capri. On arrival, ride an open-top taxi up to Capri town where your Local Expert escorts you to Caesar Augustus Gardens for views of the Faraglioni rocks and a refreshing lemon granita.

The Blue Grotto is one of Capri’s famous attractions. This is no surprise as inside you’ll find the sunlight illuminating the crystal-clear water to an unspeakable shade of blue. There are many tour boats sailing into The Blue Grotto so don’t hesitate to hop on one and explore this natural wonder for yourself. Don’t forget to bring your camera while here! If you’re a confident swimmer, you can swim into The Blue Grotto, we recommend doing so in the afternoon as the hustle and bustle of the tour boats will have settled down by then. Looking to relax after exploring The Blue Grotto? Relax one of the amazing sandy beaches the Capri Island has to offer. The Marina Piccola beach is one of the hottest places on the island to take a dip. Buy a gelato, sit back and relax!

Enjoy the sunset with your family and friends at the Punta Carena lighthouse, it’s the perfect place to watch the sun slip into the Mediterranean Sea. The views are more than romantic here. Enjoy some delicious dinner with a large cocktail at Piazzetta, the main square of Capri. Rub elbows with some VIP visitors between 7 pm – 9 pm when they jump of their yachts to enjoy an evening on Capri. No one, not even celebrities can resist those views!
