Northeastern Italy: From the alps to the Mediterranean Sea 

This is the one of several tours included in our varied pallet that retrace portions of  the famous “Grand Tours” of the 17th and 18th centuries taken by the great European writers, composers, philosophers and artists through picturesque landscapes that inspired so many artists  of the past before reaching the splendours of the Italian Art Cities.

VERONA, the city of Romeo and Juliet; MANTUA and FERRARA two of the Renaissance pearls; SABBIONETA included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites as a perfect example of  Renaissance urban planning; PADUA “the erudite” with one of the oldest universities in the world still active since 1288; the uniquely magical VENICE, with its lagoon and archipelago and where the first Jewish “ghetto” was established; small and secluded hamlets that seem frozen in time and where Jewish life used to thrive; quaint SIRMIONE lying on the shores of  LAKE GARDA where its natural beauty can be enjoyed while gazing out at some of the most famous Italian landscapes or taking a dip into recent history (Mussolini had his headquarters here after Italy’s armistice in 1943); MILAN, the most cosmopolitan Italian city and fashion capital of the world, with its own unique charm, beauty and glamour.

Like any of our tours this trip can be shortened or extended.  For the latter option, we invite you to have a look at all our tours which, either partially or totally can be added to this tour.

We invite you to also check our list of additional tour options and activities that are offered with each tour at an extra cost to be advised upon request.
