Italia Bella: Rome to Venice
A place where stories come to life. Imagine ancient Rome as you walk inside the Colosseum… the brilliance of the Renaissance, as you gaze up at Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel… the art of 16th-century Florence, while taking in the towering figure of David at the Galleria dell’Accademia… the wealth of medieval Venice, as you cruise past opulent palaces on the Grand Canal… meet a Venetian mask maker, taste the magic of an icy gelato, strike your own pose beside the famed leaning tower of Pisa, and glide along the world’s most famous lagoon waters to “O sole mio!”
After hours guided visit to the Vatican & Sistine Chapel, explore medieval Orvieto, guided visit in the Uffizi, pizza-making in Florence, high-speed train to Venice, mask-making and gondola ride in Venice.
Higher, faster, farther… the Alpine way Snowy peaks, glistening glaciers, idyllic meadows and – summer fun! Few places on Earth pack in as much outdoor adventure and mountain tradition as the Alps, then surround them with breathtaking beauty. Cruise across Lake Lucerne… head higher up Mount Pilatus on a cogwheel train, celebrating its 125th birthday in 2014… go faster on a summer toboggan run across mountain slopes… watch a ski jumper sail farther than you imagined possible … and head to Austria, where an emperor awaits, a whitewater rafting adventure thrills, and the music and games of Tyrol lead to the castle of a Bavarian king.
Tyrolean “hut” evening with fun from archery to 3-wheel cycling; cable car rides; trip on Mount Pilatus cog railway during its 125th anniversary; rafting, mountain bicycling, rock and rope climbing; horse-drawn carriage to Neuschwanstein; ski-jump demonstration in Innsbruck; Lake Lucerne cruise; Glacier Express ride.
