    Itinerary
    DayDestinationDescription
    Day 1Depart USATHURSDAY: Boarding your overnight flight, you're off on a journey that will remain etched in your memory forever!
    Day 2RomeFRIDAY: Benvenuti a Roma! Your Perillo representative will be at the airport to greet you. We are pleased to offer complimentary transfers from the Rome airport to your hotel at scheduled times.

    This afternoon you'll have some time to relax or better yet, explore the Eternal City. There's so much to see and do!

    Tonight, we'll meet our tour leader for a brief orientation and welcome drink. After orientation, you'll be free for the remainder of the evening. Be sure to ask your tour leader for restaurant recommendations - so many wonderful places to eat in this amazing city!

    Day 3RomeSATURDAY: Rome wasn't built in a day, and you certainly can't see it in one-but we'll try to show you as much as possible in the next few days!

    This morning, we travel ten-minutes to another country-Vatican City. With our expert local guide we'll tour the Vatican Museums, a massive collection of ancient Greek sculptures, medieval tapestries and Renaissance paintings. Our visit culminates in the Sistine Chapel, the room where the Pope is elected.

    Next we visit St. Peter's Basilica, by far the largest church in Christendom. We'll see Michelangelo's Pieta, sculpted when he was just 24, as well as Bernini's seven-story bronze canopy located above the main altar.

    Tonight, we'll recount our explorations with good food and wines fit for an Emperor at a local Roman restaurant!

    (Please note that the visit of St. Peter's Basilica is subject to availability based on the events planned by the Pope.)

    Day 4RomeSUNDAY: Hail Caesar! All aboard our chariot for a relaxing, panoramic driving tour of Imperial Rome including the Roman Forum, downtown ancient Rome, the Circus Maximus, and the Great Synagogue, built in the heart of the Jewish quarter.

    Then we'll enter the Colosseum, reliving the brutal entertainment of the gladiators and the lions, refereed by the Emperor himself.

    Tonight, we thought you'd enjoy a dinner on your own. Ask your tour guide for a nearby recommendation or venture out and explore the local restaurants in Rome! Be sure to try a 'Suppli,' a quintessential Roman specialty: Fried ball of rice filled with tomato sauce, meat and melted mozzarella.

    *Colosseum entrance subject to ticket availability*

    Day 5SorrentoMONDAY: After a delicious breakfast in the hotel, we're off on the beautiful drive south to Pompeii! On the way, we approach the view of the Bay of Naples, birthplace of Caruso, Sophia Loren, Bel Canto and 'O Sole Mio.

    We travel back to the Pompeii of 79 AD. A city perfectly preserved by the ash that rained down from Mt. Vesuvius. You'll see the tragic fossils of the people trying to escape with their children and dogs, and streets, homes and stores that are all amazingly intact.

    This evening we enjoy a dinner out at a local restaurant.

    Day 6SorrentoTUESDAY: This morning, we board our speedy jetfoil to the world's most enchanting island-Capri. We'll enjoy a private boat tour around the island (weather permitting). We'll cruise by the magnificent Faraglioni, Capri's iconic rock formations which tower above the Mediterranean Sea.

    Next, we visit one of the lesser-known but equally beautiful sea caves, the Grotta Bianca. Then we'll have free time to explore the island on our own, or take advantage of a special optional excursion with our tour leader.

    Later this afternoon, we sail back and have some time to relax before heading out to a great Neapolitan restaurant for dinner.

    Day 7FlorenceWEDNESDAY: This morning, after a delicious breakfast, we board a train to Florence! We'll arrive in time for a lunch at our hotel followed by a walking tour of the historical center of this most famous of all Renaissance cities!

    We'll visit the majestic Duomo Complex built in 1296, Giotto's Bell Tower and the Baptistery with its renowned Gates of Paradise doors.

    We follow the medieval streets to the most striking square in Florence, Piazza della Signoria.

    'Breathtaking' is the only word to describe one's first view of Michelangelo's David. Yes, it's quite large and detailed. But the real magic is in how Michelangelo transformed a lifeless rock into a man-full of pride, wary of his adversary, yet quietly confident. All with just a hammer and a chisel!

    Tonight, we enjoy a Florentine dinner in our hotel with fine wines

    *In the event of a train strike or such problems, we will travel to Florence by bus.

    Day 8FlorenceTHURSDAY: The Grand Canal is just a short train ride away from Florence. Should we go? ... SI! ANDIAMO A VENEZIA!

    There is no normal life in Venice. Here, everything and everyone floats luxuriously with a sense of freedom, never tormented by traffic or even the sound of a horn.

    Your guide will show you all the sights-St. Mark's Square, the Basilica, and the Bridge of Sighs. Just around the corner from St. Mark's Square, we'll enjoy a special Venetian lunch in a town renowned for its seafood specialties.

    This evening we return to Florence for dinner on your own. Make sure to try Pappa al Pomodoro, a rustic Tuscan soup made with tomatoes, garlic, onions and of course, Tuscan bread!

    Day 9FlorenceFRIDAY: Our last day together will be at our favorite winery! You'll visit the Tenuta Torciano winery in Tuscany and meet our dear friend, Pierluigi Giachi, the world's most enchanting sommelier. You'll learn about the grape, the nose, food pairings and most importantly-which glass to use with each wine! You'll also get to experience an olive oil and truffle oil tasting...and of course have some fresh bread with it!

    This will all be followed by a fabulous lunch and wine tasting. Salute! Enjoy the remainder of the day and evening on your own, perhaps shopping for last minute souvenirs!

    Day 10Return USASATURDAY: This morning board your flight home, arriving in the USA the same day. Unless, of course, you have chosen to extend your stay! A warm Grazie for traveling with the Perillo family and please return soon.
