Excellent itinerary, allowing us to see the most historically significant & magnificent architecture & art in Venice, Florence & Rome. The local tour guides were impressive, providing thoughtful insights regarding the artistic masterpieces, Italy's history & its most famous inhabitants. Our most memorable moment was viewing of the Sistine Chapel, in private & without crowds, after hours. Climbing to the top of the Dome of the Duomo, during our unscheduled time, for a breathtaking view of Florence. Gazing upon Michelangelo's Pieta in St. Peter's Basilica & his David in the Accademia Gallery. Walking the streets of Rome, amongst its fantastic fountains & ruins. Last but certainly not the least, walking into the Colosseum on the ground floor, the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.
