We travel south to spend three nights just outside Rome. We travel by train into the centre of this amazing city, steeped in history, which is the heart of the ancient Roman Empire and of modern-day Italy.
The capital city boasts a stunning array of sights to match its celebrated past and present. You will have two full days to explore the remarkable sights of Rome, including the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel, and the Trevi Fountain.
Florence is home to many of Italy’s Renaissance treasures, with its spectacular Duomo dominating the city’s skyline. The absorbing art galleries contain many masterpieces, including those of Michelangelo.
The city of Siena, with its narrow streets and rose-coloured brick medieval buildings has many fine sights to view, particularly around the Piazza. We also visit the typical, unspoilt culture of San Gimignano. Known as the ‘city of beautiful towers’, it is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Tuscany.
The Italian Lakeland provides a superb conclusion to our tour, an idyllic combination of lakes and mountains. ‘Our hotel is located near to Lake Maggiore, which is often bathed in brilliant sunshine and is the ideal place to relax for our final two nights in Italy. A boat takes us out on the lake to explore the beautiful Borromean islands.
The evening meetings, with an inspiring Bible talk and time of singing, are always a highlight.
