VENICE, FLORENCE & ROME (3 NTS VENICE & 3 NTS FLORENCE & 3 NTS ROME) - 2019
Tour Code -
From $2157 USD
"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears…” Perhaps you’re heard this famous Shakespearean line. We’re not entirely sure, but we suspect he was about to say, “Monograms has made it easy for visitors to come to Rome—as well as Florence and Venice.” In fact, on this 10-day holiday, we've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train station. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature is the Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there throughout your stay to help you feel comfortable, answer questions, offer suggestions, and help make sure your holiday runs smoothly. You’ll have a Local Host in Venice, Florence, and Rome.
And don’t forget…your package includes transportation on the high-speed train (first-class) between the cities. We've even included the transfers so we’ll pick you up at your hotel, take you to the train station, get you on the correct train, pick you up at the next train station, and bring you to your hotel in the next city. Plus, sightseeing includes VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines at the attractions, such as the Vatican Museums, the Colosseum, and the Roman Forum. That saves over four hours of time just in Rome. That doesn’t include all the time we've saved you by handling your holiday details—not to mention the time saved by having a Local Host there to assist you rather than reading guidebooks and trying to figure it out on your own. It’s a holiday of a lifetime!

ENTRANCES to Marciana Library, and the Correr and Archaeological Museums are included; ask your Local Host for details.
Your Local Host can help you with information for your full day at leisure. Perhaps a stop at the prestigious fabric firm Bevilacqua, where master artisans still weave on 18th-century wooden looms or Atelier Nicolao for unique carnival costumes appreciated world-wide.

Morning guided sightseeing, with headset, includes a visit of the ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS with Michelangelo's original David (the Academy is replaced with the Duomo Museum on Mondays and on the first Sunday of each month). Walk through Piazza del Duomo; sculpture-studded Piazza della Signoria, the centre of the city's political life since the 14th century; and Santa Croce Square. Also admire medieval Ponte Vecchio, the arched, stone merchant bridge spanning the Arno River.
Your Local Host can help you plan your day in this splendid Renaissance city, with suggestions such as a visit to the aromatic Old Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella with its soaps, perfumes, and lotions.
Travel by HIGH-SPEED TRAIN (First class) to Rome.
Your morning guided sightseeing, with headset, is rich in religious and ancient history. Visit the VATICAN MUSEUMS to see amazing treasures. In the SISTINE CHAPEL, where the Conclave is held to elect new popes, view Michelangelo's The Last Judgment and his famous ceiling paintings. Also on the agenda today, enter monumental ST. PETER'S SQUARE and BASILICA, built in 313 AD above St. Peter the Apostle's tomb and home to Michelangelo's masterpiece Renaissance sculpture, the Pietà. Cross the Tiber River and continue your immersion in history at the iconic COLOSSEUM, built for 50,000 spectators, and the ROMAN FORUM, where the oldest structures of the ancient city are located. (Note that there are occasions when the Vatican Museum is closed. On any of these dates, your full Monograms city sightseeing will be moved to an alternate day to ensure you have the full insider experience.)
Your Local Host will have suggestions so you can make the most of your day, such as where to find the ancient Marcellus open-air theater, with part of its original exterior still visible; or how to assure your return to the "Eternal City"-by tossing a coin into Trevi Fountain!
Your holiday ends with breakfast this morning.
