Description of Rome to Venice tour, Italy

No tour of Italy would be complete without the chance to compare and contrast two of the country's most enigmatic cities: Rome and Venice.

Of course, there's a heck of a lot to experience in between which is why this particular Rome to Venice tour goes out of its way to show you the city sights and sublime scenery alongside a thoroughly worthwhile blend of rustic dining and cultural enlightenment.

Starting your Italy tour in Rome lets you understand the capital's relationship with both the past and the present, and as you wind your way through the Eternal City you'll want to pause to catch your breath and not just for the traffic whizzing past some of Europe's most iconic ancient structures.

Venice, on the other hand, is blessed with peace and tranquillity where bridges stretch over canals and vast piazzas are alive with beating wings, church bells and the sing song of Italian as well as some of the most fabulous architectural designs this side of Florence.

Holiday information

Small group tour, ideal for solos & couples:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modeled on independent travel but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. Its easy to tick off the big sights independently but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. For those with limited time, a small group tour will save valuable time in planning, and on holiday.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


Wherever we go in the world, we take a responsible attitude with us. That means travelling in a way which both respects and benefits local people, their culture and the environment. We travel with an average group size of just 10 people and mostly take public transport, stay and eat in small-scale locally-owned establishments. With two whole weeks to explore the magic and culture of Italy, you will have countless opportunities to interact with the friendly local people, to absorb the mellow yet passionate culture, discover the rich history, and to gain great insight into the Italian way of life.

While in Lucca we will set off for a cycle ride winding along a scenic river through the Tuscan countryside and perhaps stop for a picnic, a great way to cover a lot of ground, see the scenery close up, and get some fresh air at the same time. On our bike ride with our friendly qualified guide we make sure we stick to the correct trails. Taking these small steps, we're able to make a big difference. And that goes for the whole trip experience too. Our travellers get the chance to meet local people and really get to know their culture first hand. You'll contribute directly to local economies and help develop cross-cultural understanding. In others words, enjoy a real life experience.


Your leader and local guides will be able to direct you to many local eateries throughout the trip, helping you discover real local fare, at real local prices (and probably helping you learn some local language at the same time).

Travellers that wish to help further can make a donation to the our charitable foundation. In 2007 the foundation donated over 100,000 to make a difference in local communities in terms of health care, education, human rights, child welfare and in environmental and wildlife protection in all our destinations worldwide.
