Vaporetto Tour of Venice
The Vaporettos are the bus service of Venice, but they run in canals, not on streets. The no-flat-tires-guaranteed tour takes you around the ancient city built out of the sea to admire it as the natives have for hundreds of years, from the water.
Guided Walking Tour of Venice
Stretch your legs and open your eyes in the City of Canals at the glorious Piazza San Marco in front of Saint Mark’s Basilica, and appreciate a great view of both city and water from the Rialto Bridge.
Guided Tour of Verona
Romeo and Juliet’s city has a long history of architecture and grandeur to offer the eyes of any onlooker: pretty piazzas, knots of lanes, and a remarkably well-preserved 1st century amphitheatre. Add countless churches, a couple of architecturally fascinating bridges over the Adige. All this just a short hop from the shores of stunning Lake Garda.
Guided Walking tour of Florence
Florence is made for walking, offering all who stroll a view of it’s overwhelming beauty. It’s impossible not to be completely and utterly seduced by the sheer size and grandeur of Brunelleschi’s red cathedral dome on Piazza del Duomo; by the sensual beauty of a stash of lesser-known Michelangelo sculptures, and the multitude of glorious offerings the many museums have.

Walking Tour of Rome
The Italian capital, “The Eternal City”, has existed for more than 2,710 years. All those years have marinated Rome into a really impressive stew of mixed cultures and architecture styles. It is a feast for the eyes.
Tour the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel
The Vatican is the Papal state, a country within the city of Rome. One of the many buildings in The Vatican is the Sistine Chapel: where Michelangelo created one of his most famous works on the ceiling. The chapel is also a part of the process of choosing a new pope.
St. Peter’s Basilica
The Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican, or simply St. Peter’s Basilica, is an Italian Renaissance church in Vatican City. St. Peter’s is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and is regarded as the greatest building of its age. It is the largest church in the world and Saint Peter’s tomb is supposedly directly below the high altar of the Basilica.
Colosseo, as the Italians call it, is the largest amphitheater ever built, located in the center of Rome. The Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology. View it today, and imagine it in all its original glory.
The Roman Forum is a plaza surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of Rome. Citizens of the ancient city referred to this space, originally a marketplace, as the Forum Magnum. It was for centuries the center of Roman public life; the most celebrated meeting place in the world, and in all history.
