Along Europe's Scenic "Yellow Roads"

Think of Italy and a host of images comes to mind... the glories of Rome, taking shape in the now silent roars of the Colosseum, priceless works of art by Michelangelo and other famed Italian artists whose masterpieces eternally evoke awe in Europe's greatest museums...

Discover bella Italia on one of Tauck's most popular journeys... in scenic Tuscan hill towns, centuries-old cities and countryside villages, and along the Amalfi Coast… in the treasures of Florence, coloring an era of enlightenment with a rich palette of paintings and architecture by Renaissance luminaries like da Vinci, Botticelli and Brunelleschi... along saltwater roads in Venice lined with magnificent palaces frozen in time... in sun-dappled Tuscan villages, medieval icons reigning over vineyard-draped landscapes that produce wines and foods that are regionally inspired, locally flavored and ultimately delizioso... and on an after-hours guided visit to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel for an extraordinary look at ageless masterpieces – without the crowds – during a three-night stay in the Eternal City...

A trattoria lunch in Orvieto

Day 6

Enjoy lunch at a traditional trattoria in Orvieto

By definition, an Italian "trattoria" is an eatery that's a bit more formal than an "osteria" (which traditionally emphasize wine over the simple food they serve) but less formal than a "ristorante." In any case, the typical trattoria is a casual, welcoming establishment that serves plentiful portions of well-prepared local or regional specialties, often "family style" and without a printed menu. While visiting the Umbrian hill town of Orvieto, you'll enjoy a traditional lunch at just such a place – a trattoria about which one guest said, "the ambiance is rustic and down to earth... I almost felt like I was in someone's welcoming home dining room..."

The Westin Excelsior, Florence

Nights 9, 10 and 11

Enjoy your own personal Renaissance at The Westin Excelsior, Florence

The Westin Excelsior, Florence is an undisputed masterpiece in its own right: a stunning Renaissance palace with cutting-edge contemporary interiors, flawlessly paired with unique Renaissance features. The perfect mix of style and design, each of its guest rooms and suites is beautifully decorated in period style, offering a taste of Florentine tradition. No wonder it’s been voted one of the 500 best hotels in the world by the readers of Travel + Leisure…

Ancient Pompeii... frozen in time

Back to 1st Century Pompeii

Pompeii was a prosperous Roman city with a population of approximately 27,000 souls until August 24, 79 AD – the fateful day that Mount Vesuvius erupted and completely buried it and its inhabitants under a blanket of volcanic ash. And there it sat until its discovery by an architect more than 1,500 years later. It would be another 150 years before some of the world’s earliest archaeologists began excavating the site in the 1740s, slowly revealing a city frozen in time. Today, as you walk with a local guide among the remains of Pompeii's buildings and streets – still an active archaeological site – you’ll get a firsthand glimpse of what life might have been like in the Roman Empire during the 1st century AD.

Organization was fabulous. Saw so many sights. Knowledgeable guides. Really great synchronization between travel, guides, meals. All hotels did a great job. Yes we were busy but there was free time too which you could use for more exploring or rest. I would not travel with any other group.

Most Memorable Moment:

The private concert, private tour times.


The itinerary , the Tauck experience, and our amazing tour director, made every day a "WOW!" day. The other guests on tour are now friends, and the daily agenda is now a series of cherished memories we'll never forget. Italy captures the heart and Tauck captures the moment!

Most Memorable Moment:

Every day was a highlight moment. But we fell in love with Italy, when we first entered our room at the Borgo dei Conti Resort and gazed out our window at the Umbrian countryside. It was a feeling of awe, and knowing we were blessed beyond measure to share the experience.
