Multi-City Tours in Italy

Italy is home to so many diverse regions, stunning beaches and exciting cities that visiting just one resort on your Italy vacation may not be enough. That’s why we offer a wide range of multi-city tours, which allow you to visit more than one place in one trip, allowing you to make the most of your vacation time. However, with so much choice and a multitude of combinations, it can be difficult to know which cities to combine for the perfect dream vacation. With this in mind, here are our top picks for multi-city tours in Italy, designed to suit a range of tastes.

 

Best for… Diversity

If you want to experience the diversity of Italy in one trip and yet still see the most popular cities and resorts then we recommend a multi-city tour with Rome, Florence, Venice and Sorrento. This combines the history of Rome and the art scene of Florence with the romantic magic of Venice and the warm sun of Sorrento. Plus, thanks to Italy’s efficient and economical train network, you can easily travel between cities, whilst enjoying a relaxing journey through the Italian countryside.

Another popular choice is Rome, Florence, Venice and Lake Garda, which allows you to see the stunning Italian Lake District and enjoy the tranquil natural scenery of North Italy. To enjoy even more diversity, you could take a day trip from Lake Garda to Verona whilst on this vacation to explore the city of love that inspired Shakespeare’s play Romeo & Juliet.

 

Best for… Culture

If you want to discover the world-famous Italian culture on your multi-center vacation then one of your stops must surely be the historic city of Rome, where you can discover the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the magnificent Vatican City. On a cultural multi-city tour of Italy, Rome combines well with Florence, where you can explore the art scene at the Uffizi and Accademia galleries. Plus, you can easily reach Pisa from Florence on a day trip to take in the world-famous Leaning Tower.

Another good option for a cultural multi-city tour of Italy that has more of a focus on beautiful architecture is Turin, Milan, Verona and Venice. While Turin brings Baroque, Rococo, Neo-Classical and Art Nouveau architecture, Milan astounds you with its glorious Duomo, and Verona and Venice bring romance with Verona’s imposing amphitheater and Venice’s magical San Marco Basilica.

 

Best for… Hidden Gems

If you’ve visited the more popular Italian cities then you may be more interested in touring Italy’s hidden gems. Italy has a great many quaint towns and fishing villages to enjoy and in South Italy we particularly love Alberobello, which is known as the Capital of the Trulli. Here you’ll find the fascinating and magical trulli, which are fairytale-like architectural features that date back to the 14th century – they are specifically found in Apulia and so are truly a hidden gem waiting for you to discover them! A vacation in Alberobello combines well with Bari, which features an historic port lined with imposing buildings in hues of salmon pink. There is also a fascinating old town to discover, as well as a castle dating back to the Norman times and a glorious botanical garden.

If you want to explore the hidden gems of North Italy, such as those in the famous region of Tuscany, we recommend a multi-city package including Lucca, Siena and San Gimignano. In Lucca you’ll find ancient city walls that you can walk on and enjoy views of the Tuscan countryside and mountains, while Siena will enchant you with its maze of streets that open out to the epic Piazza del Campo, which is where the Palio horse race is held. It also has an unbelievably pretty cathedral in hues of pink, white and pale green, which make it seem simply magical! San Gimignano is a real treat on a multi-stop vacation in Tuscany – it is a hill-top town, featuring stunning views of rolling hills and winding rivers, and it is well-regarded for its medieval architecture and towers, as well as its distinctive local wine, called Vernaccia di San Gimignano.

 

Best for… Relaxation

If you’re craving relaxation in the sunshine and in an idyllic setting surrounded by turquoise waters and fragrant lemon groves, we recommend a twin-center vacation to Sorrento and Capri in the south of Italy. The atmosphere in this region of Italy is distinctly laid-back and the coastal views are simply stunning, especially if you choose to enjoy a day touring the Amalfi Coast. On a vacation to the south of Italy, you can discover magical natural features, such as the Blue Grotto in Capri, which is a natural cave with waters that sparkle likes blue diamonds, as well as unusual natural rock sculptures and you can also sample authentic pizza on a day trip to Naples! You can also easily incorporate a tour of Pompeii to discover the historic secrets of this lost city.

If you would prefer to relax in nature then we suggest the Italian Lake District to you, which sits in the north of Italy and features mountain backdrops, deep glistening lakes, fresh fish and seafood, and dense forests with the scent of pine trees that will lull you into a deep sense of relaxation. The Lakes combine well with cities like Verona, Milan and Venice, but you may also like to extend your break in nature and travel north to The Dolomites, where you can enjoy hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter.

 

Best for… Beaches

If your dream vacation involves relaxing on the beach then consider including Sicily or Sardinia into your Italy vacation. Both have a laid-back atmosphere with glorious sunshine, white sandy beaches, crystal waters and enjoyable beach activities, such as surfing and SCUBA diving. We suggest Sicily for a more affordable beach vacation and we offer a Sicilian Sunshine Package, which takes you to Catania, Cefalù and Palermo, allowing you to enjoy a mix of beach relaxation, unique architecture and the friendly Sicilian culture.

If you have a more generous budget then Sardinia has many stunning beach resorts, where you can discover idyllic coves, unbelievable beaches, underwater caves, thrilling water sports and the freshest seafood you can imagine! It is the quintessential of Mediterranean beauty and is an excellent choice for sun-worshippers.
