If you’re in search of romance, Venice is sure to make you fall in love with its artistic surroundings and maze of enchanting canals. The best way to discover the city’s riches is aboard one of the iconic gondolas. As you cruise along the Grand Canal, Venice’s oldest water artery, admire the sights of grand Renaissance palaces and elaborate arched bridges.
The highlight of your Italy itinerary will be your visit to Rome. The Colosseum was the largest built in the Roman Empire and is considered one of the most important exponents of Roman architecture. Enter the heart of the ancient amphitheater to imagine the lively atmosphere of the crowd of screaming Romans as the gladiators fought wildly against each other.

We recommend the car option, only if you are going to make a route through nearby countries such as Croatia or France. Keep in mind that parking in cities like Milan, Florence or Venice can cost you a lot of money, since the downtown area is restricted to vehicles or is payable.

Calculate that a trip between Milan and Venice has a price of about 20 euros in modern high-speed trains. Check prices and availability on the Trenitalia website.
