You’ll also see the planet’s oldest shopping mall - the 19th-century Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II - where you can stroll through the boutique shops and have lunch in one of the upscale cafes. From Milan, it’s a short journey to Verona - home to some of Italy’s finest architecture and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, you’ll be taken on foot through streets lined with red-roofed buildings and walk past the ancient Roman arena that stages outdoor opera performances and music concerts to packed audiences throughout the summer. You’ll also visit the residence of Verona’s most famous characters: Romeo and Juliet. Find Juliet’s balcony by following the trail of unanswered love letters posted on the passageway walls.

Day 6 Venice - Rome

 Venice Spend the morning in the company of a knowledgeable tour guide as you explore the magical city of Venice. Begin with a water-bus ride to San Marco Island, a memorable crossing of the lagoon that gives you a real taste of the city’s charm as you approach the dreamy spires and distinctive waterside buildings. Once on the island, you’ll be led around some of Venice’s best-known locations beginning with St. Mark's Square, St. Mark's Basilica and the legendary Bridge of Sighs! Afterwards, you’ll have a chance to see some traditional Venetian craft-work at close quarters with a demonstration by Murano glassblowers. Their exquisite creations make excellent souvenirs! Of course, the ultimate Venice activity is to ride through the city's waterways on a gondola and for most people this optional attraction is a must! Step aboard, relax and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. The cost is an additional 25.00 Euro/person (Based on 6 persons per gondola). You will be offered an optional delicious homemade Italian spaghetti meal for 20.00 Euro/person before enjoying more free time in this sublime city.

Here you’ll marvel at St. Peter’s Basilica, arguably the most significant site in Christianity. The exquisitely beautiful basilica has been around for nearly 1,700 years and contains a magnificent collection of paintings, frescoes and designs created by some of the world's most famous artists. You can choose to add on an optional Sistine Chapel tour for a separate fee to view Michelangelo’s breath-taking painted ceiling. Next, you’ll see the famous Trevi Fountain - the lavish Baroque showpiece in which people throw coins in to believing the legend that doing so will ensure that you’ll return to the city again one day. After lunch, take a step even further back in time as you visit Italy’s unrivaled Roman relics. We highly recommend you partake in an optional guided tour (12.00 Euro/person) of the Coliseum, built in AD 72. After the Coliseum, you'll see the nearby Arch of Constantine that dates back to the Fourth Century AD.
