DAY 3 - LAKE GARDA

We head further south today towards Lake Garda. A shorter day so that we arrive in good time to appreciate Lake Garda, which, is the largest lake in Italy. It is a popular holiday location and is located in northern Italy, about halfway between Brescia and Verona, and between Venice and Milan. Glaciers formed this alpine region at the end of the last Ice Age. Romantic and intriguing this location is beautiful

4

DAY 4 - PISA

We head for the town of Pisa today. Pisa is a city in Italy’s Tuscany region best known for its iconic Leaning Tower. Already tilting when it was completed in 1372, the 56m white-marble cylinder is the bell tower of the Romanesque, striped-marble cathedral that rises next to it in the Piazza dei Miracoli. Also in the piazza is the Baptistry, whose renowned acoustics are demonstrated by amateur singers daily, and the Caposanto Monumentale cemetery.
5

DAY 5 - ROME

Rome is our destination today. Rome, Italy’s capital, is a sprawling, cosmopolitan city with nearly 3,000 years of globally influential art, architecture and culture on display. Ancient ruins such as the Forum and the Colosseum evoke the power of the former Roman Empire. Vatican City, headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, has St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes
6

DAY 6 - POMPEII AND SORRENTO

We head south today leaving Rome behind us. On route we make a stop at Pompeii leaving you free to wander around the vast archaeological site located in southern Italy’s Campania region. Once a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii was buried in meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Near the coast of the Bay of Naples, the well-preserved site features excavated ruins that visitors can freely explore. From here we head a short distance to Sorrento.

Sorrento is a coastal town in southwestern Italy, facing the Bay of Naples on the Sorrentine Peninsula. Perched atop cliffs that separate the town from its busy marinas, it’s known for sweeping water views and Piazza Tasso, a cafe-lined square. The historic center is a warren of narrow alleys that’s home to the Chiesa di San Francesco, a 14th-century church with a tranquil cloister. It is also home to the “Almalfi Coast” and the road that runs along the cliff face is spectacular, we will get an opportunity to ride along this road

DAY 7 - REST DAY SORRENTO

As this area is so beautiful and stunning with lots to see and do, that perfectly represents the Italian lifestyle, we take a day off and leave you to explore the beautiful city, go for a ferry trip to Capri, discover the lemon groves and taste the Limoncello, Ice-Cream, Pizzas and all manner of delicious treats available.

DAY 8 - AMALFI COAST & MATERA

The popular Amalfi Coast route (SS 163 Amalfitana) follows the shoreline from Sorrento south to Salerno, in Italy. Locals recommend planning a drive of the Amalfi Coast during the shoulder tourist seasons, mid-September to October and May, when the road is less crowded and lumbering tour buses are fewer. It’s one of the best coastal roads in the world and probably one of our all time favourites. Picturesque Amalfi has been featured in films for as long as cameras have rolled at 24 frames per second. Click here for more info.

Matera is a city and a province in the region of Basilicata, in Southern Italy. It is the capital of the province of Matera and the capital of Basilicata from 1663 to 1806. The town lies in a small canyon carved out by the Gravina. Matera is one of the most interesting, unusual and memorable tourist destinations in Italy. In the remote southern region of Basilicata (also called Lucania), still little-visited by foreign travellers, it is a town famous for its extensive cave-dwelling districts, the sassi. Curious visitors can stay in caves, wander the lanes alongside the picturesque cave-filled cliffs, and learn the history of this fascinating place.

9

DAY 9 - ANCONA ADRIATIC SEA

Ancona is a city on Italy’s Adriatic coast and the capital of the Marche region. It’s known for beaches, like Spiaggia del Passetto, and the hilltop Cathedral of San Ciriaco. In the city center, the Fontana del Calamo is a fountain with bronze masks of mythic figures. On opposite sides of the port are the ancient Arch of Trajan and the Lazzaretto, a pentagonal, 18th-century quarantine station on an artificial island.

10

DAY 10 - VENICE

Despite common belief, you can park in Venice in designated parking lots at Piazzale Roma , the cost is around 15 Euro per day and requires pre-online booking. Here is the link and allows you to explore Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, which, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs

We aim to leave early this morning to arrive in Venice at around lunchtime giving you time to explore the city of Venice if you wish that afternoon and into the evening. Our hotel will be just outside the main town on the mainland of Italy

11

DAY 11 - DOLOMITES

The Italian Dolomites are spectacular. The roads are very well maintained and the scenery is just utterly stunning. We stay the night in the Dolomites

12

DAY 12 - 14- AUSTRIA - HOME

Day 12 – 14 we head back through Austria through Germany towards France on a mix of A roads and motorway to get our train back from Calais to Folkestone

Incredibly beautiful scenery and gorgeous roads. This is a tour packed full of splendour and excitement and the tour guides make it such a ball. I was thrilled with the level of attentiveness from the tour guide and will not hesitate to recommend these polite and helpful guys to anyone.
