It is broadcast around the world - and being there is a memory to cherish forever! In the afternoon, our city sightseeing tour will include magnificent sights: the Coliseum, where gladiators fought for their lives; the Forum, once the center of the Roman Empire; the Pantheon, a temple to all gods; and of course the Trevi Fountain (don’t forget to toss a coin).

Dec 26th: Day free or join us on our optional tour to Pompeii. The 79 AD eruption of Mount Vesuvius with the enormous rain of ashes brought the city’s live to a sudden end. Excavations that continue now over 250 years brought back to light the most precious document of the ancient world. You spend the morning on a guided tour featuring the highlights of this ancient city. Around noon we take the Sorrentina, a panoramic drive disclosing spectacular views over the Bay of Naples.

Dec 27th: This morning you can join our optional tour to the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, highlighting a priceless collection of artworks. After lunch we drive north to Florence. Tonight you may attend a Tuscan Gala Dinner – a perfect way to top your stay in Italy (appr. €49).

Dec 28th: Breakfast and hotel check out. Our brief walking tour of Florence highlights the Ponte Vecchio, the Dome of St. Mary with Brunelleschi’s Cupola, Giotto’s celebrated Bell Tower and the Baptistery with the Porta dell Paradiso. Passing by Signoria Square, we proceed to the Franciscan St. Croce Church, burial ground of many of the geniuses of the Renaissance age. Afterwards free time for shopping (Florentine leather and gold). Early afternoon, we depart for Germany where we arrive at midnight.
