Savor the romance of ItalyEnjoy a little more time—and a lot more beauty—on this extended tour of Italy. Visit the most spectacular sights of Venice, Rome, and Florence with our Taste of Italy tour, then move on to the historic remains of the tragic city of Pompeii, and postcard-perfect seaside favorites, Sorrento and the Isle of Capri. ITALY IS AN ACTIVE DESTINATION: Visiting Italy requires the ability to walk on cobblestones and uneven terrain, climb stairs and vehicle steps, and walk or stand for several hours at a time. Traffic restrictions often require coaches to drop off passengers a substantial distance away, with a 20-minute walk to the attraction. Some tours include activities in late evening. Typical tour days may require five miles of medium-paced walking.

Trip abroad was wonderful
Purchase and ticketing there was great- the trip On the way back to US was challenging. Would never fly through Frankfurt Germany again it was total disappointing experience.
We love the ease of a CIE tour. You are able to see so much and no stress!
I can't say that I missed anything!

Fantastic tour, especially the Sorrento add on. My only concern was I wish I would have known that was an option when I booked, but must have missed it somehow. Great way to experience the best of Italy.
Jerry Daniel Wofford
I have been to Italy before (about 48 years ago) but my wife had never been there. With this in mind we enjoyed the experience. Anyone with mobility issues should avoid this tour as there is a lot of walking over rough ground and streets. The only disappointment was a failure to provide time to shop in the gift shops at the attractions. For most people this is a once in a lifetime trip and mementos would be nice. Our tour manager did provide this when asked.
