MAIN FOCUS ON BELOW REGIONS 

Vicenza is located in Italy’s Veneto region. A town with a population of 110,000 people. Vicenza is a lovely town to visit with a beautiful town center and attractive villas and viewpoints in the hills a short distance away. We’ve chosen this specific area for 7 nights because from there, it is easy to visit the North of Italy on your own or by taking excursions to Venice,  Verona, Padova etc.  To learn more about Vicenza, click here

Montecatini Terme is located in the Tuscany region and is the biggest spa-town in Italy. A 9-night stay is perfect for travelers who want to see the city’s amenities and to take short trips to the nearby cities  such as  Lucca, Florence, Pisa,  or Siena… all easily reachable by bus or by train (2 train stations: “Montecatini Terme-Monsummano” and “Montecatini Centro”). Also the spas, the golf clubs, the funicular , markets, theatres, many restaurants and night clubs contribute in making this a wonderful vacation experience.  Concerts, fairs, ballrooms, art exhibitions and festivals attract both the locals (21 000 inhabitants) and the tourists.  To learn more about Montecatini Terme, click here

Rome, the Eternal City has so much to offer: monuments, museums, excursions to the north or south, the Vatican, the Coliseum, its food and great shopping. Enjoy 3 nights to see everything you ever wished to see of this beautiful city. To learn more about Rome, click here
