Tours of Italy – Other Tours You Might Be Interested In

There is, of course, a lot more to Italy than just Rome and Florence. In this section we list a number of other Tours of Italy that you might be interested in.

As a matter of fact, you may want to take one of these tours instead of a “Grand Tour of Italy” because when you come home and say you have been to Pompeii, where Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, you will spark a lot more interest than talking about the Vatican!

There are many places to visit in Italy: Assisi, home of St. Francis; Orvieto, get-away town for the Popes, Herculaneum, a perfectly preserved ancient city near Pompeii, to site a few examples. Milan, home of Leonardo da Vinci’s Christ’s Last Supper. Venice, of course.

We present below our choices for some other tours you may want to consider as the best of the the “other” Italy Tours 2015 and 2016.

The charts for the Ultimate Guides to Touring Italy are separated into three groups:

  • 6 breakfasts, 0 lunches, 2 dinners
  • About $2,349, $427/day (Counting 5.5 full days)
  • This looks great, but it is tough to do those three cities in 5 days of touring. So you will get a litght "Taste".

Road Scholar 9 Day Hiking the Cinque Terre

  • Cinque Terre,7 villages, Riomaggiore, Monterosso, Corniglia and others
  • 7 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 6 dinners
  • About $2,399, $342/day (Counting 7 full days)

  • 8 breakfasts, 6 lunches, 3 dinners
  • About $2,736, $322/day (Counting 8.5 full days)
