Cultural vacations in Italy

Our Italy cultural tours dive into some of Europe's most amazing history and architecture, from ancient Phoenician ruins to Palladio's 16th century Veneto villas. Rome has two millennia of matchless memories. Tuscany mixes medieval, Gothic and Renaissance gems: Florence, Siena, Lucca. Sicily's classical Greek Valley of the Temples vies with Moorish Palermo and Baroque Siracusa, while Sardinia offers mysterious 6000-year-old Nuraghe ruins.
