THE SWEET LIFE

For centuries Italy has drawn those searching for culture, romance, and sensual pleasures. Few countries can compete with its classical origins, architecture, music, literary tradition, art, scenery, food and wine. With its exotic landmarks, Venice seems to burst forth off the canvas of an 18th-Century painting. Its grand palaces and romantic waterways rise like mirages from a calm, blue lagoon.

The spectacular beauty of Tuscany has long inspired many of the world’s great writers. The likes of Browning, Dickens, Dostoyevsky, Shelley, and Forster have all waxed rhapsodic on its simple charms, rural landscapes, and centuries-old cultural heritage. Lord Byron declared himself “dazzled, drunk with beauty” from its intoxicating allure. During three nights in Florence we’ll soak up its art and also explore the historic cities of Pisa and Lucca.

Rome is Italy’s treasure trove, packed with masterpieces from more than two millennia of artistic achievements. It was here that Nero fiddled while the city burned, Marc Anthony praised Caesar and Charlemagne was crowned. Enjoy four nights to revel in such icons from the past as the Coloseum, Pantheon, Michelangelo's dome for St. Peter's and the Sistine Chapel ceiling.

Those who have more time will want to extend with us after the main tour to see the wonders of Herculaneum and Pompei at Mt. Vesuvius. During three nights in Sorrento we’ll also visit the Isle of Capri and the famous Amalfi Coast, concluding with one final night in Naples.

A renowned philosopher once wrote, “A man who has not been to Italy is always conscious of inferiority.” The miracle of Italy is that all its treasures come arranged in a gorgeous package of majestic mountains, placid lakes, idyllic islands, splendid cities, and walled villages. Come with Toto Tours to savor La Dolce Vita (the sweet life) in Italy.
