For piazzas, pizzas and everything in-between, look no further than exploring the delights of Rome and Florence, with a bit of beautiful Siena along the way.
Spanish Steps & Secret Gardens
First, spend three nights exploring Italy’s wondrous capital. Stroll Rome’s many piazzas, fountains and open-air museums. Enjoy delicious cuisine whilst people watching from quaint cafes. A mixture of medieval and ancient history, Italian art and Baroque architecture, designer boutiques, cafes and restaurants – Rome has it all.
Retreat to Hotel De Russie, located on Via Del Babuino, close to the Spanish Steps. Appreciate some rest time in the ultimate urban spa, then feast on fine Italian dining in the Secret Garden, where the menu is as appealing as the garden’s citrus fragrances.
A Renaissance Masterpiece
Depart after breakfast for Florence, stopping enroute in Siena for lunch, where you can wander Europe’s finest medieval square and explore the cathedral, churches, galleries and museums.
As you arrive into Florence, it’s like stepping into a living museum. See Michelangelo’s incomplete Florence Pieta at the Museo, before visiting the Galleria dell’Accademia to marvel at David in all his glory. Base yourself for four nights at the Belmond Villa San Michele. When not exploring, whip up Italian treats at the hotel’s cookery school, or go for a swim with an unparalleled view of the city.
