9-Day Vacation in Italy's Most Prominent Cities

Cruise Venice's canals, see Michelangelo's David, and visit Vatican City on this 9-day vacation in Italy's beloved metropolises. You'll navigate between Venice, Florence, and Rome by rail, but there's no set itinerary in each city, so you can explore their landmarks at your own pace. Check out some of our suggested stops below. This vacation includes:


You won't be distracted by honking car horns in the heart of Venice. Cars are off-limits here. Instead, most transportation glides down the countless canals that crisscross this city. Minutes from your Venice hotel, you can ride a gondola along the Grand Canal to see historical architecture ($56).

  • See priceless works of art by Jackson Pollock, Salvador Dalí, and Pablo Picasso at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, a modern-art museum located on the Grand Canal.
  • St. Mark's Square: See Venice's largest square on an optional walking tour; Casino Royale and The Italian Job were filmed here ($29).
  • Head to the top of the 9th-century bell tower in the square for magnificent views of the neighboring islands and the Dolomite Mountains.


Surrounded by Tuscany's rolling green farmlands, Florence was at the heart of the Italian Renaissance; its museums and churches still display some of the world's most renowned art from that time period. Visit the Uffizi Gallery to marvel at works by Sandro Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci.

  • Say it like a local: Florence in Italian is pronounced "Firenze."
  • See David: Michelangelo's marble pièce de résistance is the highlight at the Galleria dell'Accademia.
  • Il Duomo: The red-capped dome of Florence's main church is one of Italy's most well-known structures; see it on an optional city tour ($64).


From the Colosseum's crumbling columns to the Sistine Chapel's frescoes painted by Michelangelo, Rome is a wellspring of history and culture. You'll spend 3 nights in the Eternal City, with time to check out the Roman Forum and other ancient relics.

  • Toss a coin into Trevi Fountain to help guarantee you'll visit the city again; an optional nighttime city tour will let you see the fountain looking ethereal by moonlight ($58).
  • St. Peter's Basilica: This 16th-century masterpiece is the main church of Catholicism, featuring a bronze-trimmed altar, a statue of St. Peter, and a massive vaulted dome. An optional four-hour tour visits the basilica and other Vatican Museums ($70).

I have not gone on the trip yet, so I have no tips. However, Gate 1 travel was extremely cordial and helpful when booking the trip.

We saw the groupon offer and though it was a good value for this trip. We didn't buy it immediately, but noticed more people doing so, and we did also. Justin, our rep with Gate One Travel was very helpful. He helped pick out flights that worked for us, and they used major airlines. We were alittle concerned with what our choices would be, but ended up very satisfied. So far everything has been handled well, and we would look to Groupon and Gate One for an affordable trip. Hopefully, everything will go just as smooth when we make the trip.
