• Classic Italy- Pisa?

    Don't miss going to Pisa; it's so well worth it. Last year my husband and I were on the last one week trip to Rome/Umbria/Florence during October (Tauck has since retired this trip). We went on our own having booked a Viator trip to Pisa before we left NY. It departed from Florence, so check it out if you have time. The Pisa climb was awesome, and we both loved the Baptistery there. The whole square was so picturesque. The only negative thing is that they don't give you enough time to see everything in Pisa. Alternatively, you can rent a car I guess. Don't miss the sight because it's quintessentially what one thinks of when you consider Italy.

    My husband and I went on the Classic Italy tour inMay, 2013. We arrived in Sorrento two days early. You must be sure to go to Capri. Take the funicular to the area where the shops are. The Garden of Augustus is a must because of the beautiful flowers and the views of the coast, the cliffs and the famous Faraglioni rocks. We took a boat ride around the isle with a company calked Capri Whales. It was a highlight of the trip. Check them out on TripAdvisor and you will see wonderful reviews. In Sorrento, we ate pizza at the Pizzeria Da Franco, which is recommended in Rick Steve's guidebook, and really enjoyed the food and the casual atmosphere. On your extra day in Venice, consider taking the vaporetto to Murano or Burano, or both. We went to both in one day and it is well worth it! I could go on and on about this tour. It is truly a trip of a lifetime. I could offer other suggestions for what to do when you have free time if you are interested. You can email me at rlph1967@aol.com if you like.

    Judy & George, Don & Carolyn, Have any of you been on a TAUCK tour before? This is only our second. We went to S.Africa, Botswana, & Zambia with TAUCK last May 2013. It was the BEST trip we've ever been on. Have traveled with OAT twice before, one a great trip & one just fair. We really got tired of all the expected tipping for all drivers, city tours, etc. Looking forward to this new adventure!! Only 4 weeks to go!! Diane & Bill

Travelers from all over the world remember their trip to Florence as an experience of exceptional beauty and creativity. But as is often the case, it’s impossible to do the city justice on a two- or three-day stay. So going beyond the surface to explore the city’s wondrous layers with the help of charismatic locals - is the very mission...

Linda and John Izzard recently celebrated 14 years of marriage – fourteen years that might never have come to pass had the two not traveled independently on a trip Hawaii with Tauck in 1999. Linda headed there from New York City, where she’d had a less-than-healthy winter: her boss had said, “Do us a favor; go someplace warm.&rdqu...
