Italy’s rolling green hills, ancient monuments, and picturesque vineyards are yours to explore during this self-guided vacation. With 10 days in Italy and an included rental car at your disposal for part of the trip, it’s easy to navigate between your luxury hotel accommodations and secluded villas, with plenty of time to stop off in between destinations to take in such timeless attractions as the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Uffizi Gallery, and the Roman Forum.
Home to some of the world’s most beautiful and important cultural and historical monuments, Rome has more than earned its title as the Eternal City. Once the site of legendary gladiator games, the Colosseum is the most famous of Rome’s ancient structures. Ascend to the top for an overhead view of this roughly 2,000-year-old amphitheater. After dark, pay a visit to romantic Trevi Fountain, where lights give a golden glow to the Baroque showpiece’s lifelike stone sculptures of Neptune and his chariot.
Florence and Tuscany
After your stay in Rome, you’ll travel by rail to Florence in the country’s northern Tuscan region. As the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, the city lays claim to some of the world’s most revered works of art. Many of them, including masterpieces by Botticelli and Leonardo da Vinci, can be seen at the Uffizi Gallery. Another must-see is, of course, Michelangelo’s David, which is housed at the Galleria dell’Accademia. Florence’s most distinctive architectural treasure is its 15th-century cathedral—you can’t miss the bold red dome on top.
The lush countryside of Tuscany presents a refreshing contrast to the bustle in the cities. After snapping the obligatory photo of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, you can can sample the region’s world-famous chianti at wineries that date back to medieval times.
