ROME & VENICE (3 NTS ROME & 3 NTS VENICE) - 2019
Tour Code -
From $1470 USD
All roads lead to Rome. Or wait…on this holiday they lead to Venice as well, so you can enjoy two of Italy’s captivating cities. You won’t travel between the cities on a road, though. We’ve arranged for you to travel via high-speed train from Rome to Venice. We’ve also arranged three nights hotel reservations in each city, guided sightseeing, buffet breakfast daily, transfers to/from your hotels, to/from the train stations, and the services of a Local Host® in each city, a “friend” who will help answer questions, offer suggestions and help you get the most out of your holiday.
In both cities, you’ll also have plenty of time to explore on your own. Perhaps take a tour of Rome’s catacombs; walk through Villa Borghese; or visit Harry’s Bar in Venice, a favourite hangout of Hemingway’s. Maybe enjoy a Vivaldi concert in Venice or a ghost walking tour in Venice & Rome. In both cities, you’ll have many opportunities to make your holiday memorable! Your Local Hosts can give you suggestions and also arrange activities for you. Also, be sure to ask them for the best picture spots!
But that’s not all…in Venice, your package also includes a glassblower’s presentation and entrances to Marciana Library and the Correr and Archeological Museums. That doesn’t even include the time you’ve saved by skipping the lines—not to mention the hassles and headaches! So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and take the holiday of a lifetime with Monograms.
NOTE: Customise the number of nights you stay on this package from 2 to 5 nights in each city with YourWay. Contact us for more information.
Venice is a maze of alleys and places to easily get lost. That’s why with every Monograms package to Rome & Venice, we’ve included guided sightseeing with a local expert. That way, you’re sure to visit the must-see sights. Plus, every package includes museum passes in Venice.

Day by Day
Benvenuto - welcome! Your Local Host is on hand to help you make the most of your time in the "Eternal City."
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.)
A full day at leisure to follow your own interests may take you to the Ara Pacis Museum with its Altar of Peace, or to the Tortoise Fountain in Piazza Mattei, a wonderful surprise in one of the most picturesque and historic corners of Rome. Your Local Host can help you plan your day.
