“Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life” – Anna Akhmatova, poet
Italy, ah Italy! Every heart beats for this capsule of bygone and changing times. Italian art, architecture and culture have left an unforgettable mark on many. And now the Italian Dream is yours! Why not visit both Rome and Venice in just one fantastic trip? How? As your god of Mercury, we make the arrangements, so you can explore two cities for the price of one!
First up, we fly you to the Eternal City of Rome for two nights at the 4 star ARS Hotel . With round-the-clock energy and jaw-dropping views, Rome offers everything you’ve been dreaming of. Hiding more secrets than its many emperors, from the centre of civilisation to the Roman Empire, this glam city is the hub of awe and wonder.
Next up, thunder across the vastness of Italy's plains in a scenic train crossing the magnificent country. Chug across the vine-sprinkled hillsides and see village churches and solitary elderly men hoeing fields. Various timings are available so please feel free to ask for an upgrade.
Fancy an apéritif overlooking the water or an Italian feast with savvy locals in Venice’s bàcari? Look no further! For two nights at the 4 star Ambasciatori delve into this magical lagoon and discover a majestic dome of mind-blowing sights, historic splendour and artistic treasures. Off the tourist track, uncover a water-world of dainty bridges, winding waterways and labyrinthine alleys. Bellissima Venice!
Fly back to the UK from Venice, pumped full of lasting memories of both magical cities!
