Average time to visit

Italy is an exciting place to visit at any time of the year, and most attractions are open all year round. The best time to visit is in May, early June, late September and October. Days during those months are usually warm, and quite long. July and August are hot and humid with many tourists. Since most Italians leave their hot cities in the summer, many restaurants are closed in the cities.

Winter can get cold, particularly January but it is quiet. Temperatures are more favourable in the spring and autumn months.

Itinerary

Fly to Venice
Day 1-4

Venice, Italy

Your Italian adventure starts in the vibrant and opulent city of Venice, built over a picturesque network of 150 canals. Staying at the iconic Belmond Hotel Cipriani, exuding vintage glamour this is one of Venice's most celebrated hotels. Located on the water’s edge the Belmond Hotel Cipriani has a commanding position on the tip of Giudecca island, offering panoramic views across to Piazza San Marco, the lagoon and the islands beyond.

Get lost in the maze of winding streets as you explore the city and cross the canals by foot or on board one of Venice’s iconic gondolas. With your private guide you’ll discover the history behind St Mark’s Square, home to the towering Campanile bell tower and the extravagant Doge’s Palace, once a seat of huge political power. Head away from this lively square and admire the stunning architecture of Venice’s backstreets, where a new surprise awaits around every corner. You'll also spend an afternoon on one of Venice's picturesque islands, Murano, where you'll learn about the fascinating history of glass blowing on the island with a private visit to one of its exclusive factories. Culture lovers could also visit one of the city’s celebrated art galleries or enjoy a spectacular performance at the world-famous La Fenice opera house.
Accommodation: Belmond Hotel Cipriani ( 3 nights )
Day 4-7

Florence, Italy

Ease yourself into the luxurious elegant city of Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance. The cultural capital of Italy, Florence boasts some of the most renowned art galleries and museums in the world, as well as truly breath-taking architecture. Admire the city's most famous sights with the centuries-old Uffizi Gallery, or admire masterpieces such as Michelangelo's David in the Galleria dell'Accademia.

Indulge in pure relaxation at the famous Hotel Savoy, a Rocco Forte masterpiece located in the heart of central Florence. The hotel’s streetside Ireni is frequented by guests and locals alike serving up gourmet Italian cuisine. A divine gem for art lovers as you can take time to pursue the hotel’s magnificent collection of artwork cleverly hidden on the property.

Accommodation: Hotel Savoy, a Rocco Forte Hotel ( 3 nights )
Day 7-10

Rome, Italy

Your trip finale will be Rome, the ‘Eternal City’, bursting with history dating back thousands of years. You will spend three nights here to soak up the famous landmarks and glorious cuisine. The Hotel de Russie is in the best location between the Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish Steps, perfect for seeing the best the city has to offer. One of the standout features of this hotel are without doubt the stunning terraced gardens - there is a reason why Jean Cocteau dubbed the hotel 'paradise on earth'. The property boasts one of Rome's best spas with a hydro pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and gym, as well as five treatment rooms featuring Irene Forte's handmade skincare products.

One for the early risers, join your expert guide at the Vatican in the early morning to explore the incredible museums before the doors are opened to the general public. Admire artistic masterpieces and the iconic Sistine Chapel, then explore the monumental St Peter's Basilica. Step back in time with your private guide and archaeologist as you discover the tunnels and holding chambers of the iconic Colosseum, following in the steps of the city’s Gladiators, before exploring the Roman Forum, once the vibrant heart of the ancient city. Take in the fascinating art and architecture as you get to know the city, from the beautifully-preserved Pantheon and the picturesque Borghese Gardens.
Accommodation: Hotel de Russie, a Rocco Forte Hotel ( 3 nights )
