Globus has created a selection of delightful itineraries to magnificent Italy. From the most important must-see sights, like the Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, St. Mark’s Basilica, and the Doges’ Palace with the Bridge of Sighs, to the smallest details like the use of headphones on included sightseeing in Rome, Florence, Venice, and Pompeii, Globus covers Italy like no one else.

The historic capital of Italy, remains a firm favourite with tourists who love the blend of ancient and modern attractions, not to mention the irresistible food found here, from fresh pizza to gelato. A haven of Roman remains, you will be overwhelmed by the impressive Colosseum, whilst buildings such as the Pantheon and Castel Sant’Angelo are also must-sees when you visit. And don't forget to make a wish by throwing a coin into the Trevi Fountain!
Home of Italy's stock exchange, an industrial powerhouse and the internationally accepted arbiter of taste in fashion and design, Milan is a seething metropolis. At times it can seem brash and soulless but beneath the veneer is a serious sense of history and place. The grand Gothic cathedral, the Duomo, lies at the geographical heart of this one-time Imperial Roman capital, and expresses the love of beauty and power that still drives the city today. Art collections old and new, unparalleled shopping, one of Europe's biggest trade-fair complexes, sparkling nightlife, the prestige of opera at La Scala, the mark of Leonardo da Vinci's genius, a religious addiction to calcio (football), and endless opportunities to eat the best of Lombard and Italian food make Milan much more than the puritanically work-obsessed city it is often portrayed as. The city’s next big date with destiny is Expo 2015, a world exhibition.
Imagine the audacity of building a city of marble palaces on a lagoon – and that was only the start.
Once a maritime power to rival Genoa and Venice, Pisa now draws its fame from an architectural project gone terribly wrong. But the world-famous Leaning Tower is just one of many noteworthy sights in this compelling city. Education has fuelled the local economy since the 1400s, and students from across Italy compete for places in its elite university. This endows the centre of town with a vibrant cafe and bar scene, balancing an enviable portfolio of well-maintained Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and Renaissance piazzas with a lively street life dominated by locals rather than tourists – a charm you will definitely not discover if you restrict your visit to Piazza dei Miracoli.
