Highlights & Sightseeing

Europe - Italy - Rome - St Peter's Square and Basilica

St. Peter's Square is a bustling piazza where the masses receive the Pope's weekly blessings. This ornate square frames the entrance to St. Peter's Basilica, where St. Peter was martyred and buried.

Europe - Italy - Florence - The Baptistery of St. John

Brunelleschi engineered the innovative Gothic dome gracing the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. As for the stunning bronze doors of the Baptistery, Michelangelo dubbed them "the Gates of Paradise."

Europe - Venice - Ponte Chiodo

This unusual and small bridge that spans the Rio San Felice is one of two remaining in Venice. By far it is one of the most unique bridges in the city and one of the last of it's kind. Why is this bridge special? The tale goes that before the 17th century most of Venice's bridges most bridges did not have sides but after a night at the local watering hole Venetians used to fall into the canals. At some point in history, the city council decided all bridges must have sides so locals could make it home safely!

Europe - Italy - Venice - Canal Grande

Venice's main water thoroughfare, lined with great Renaissance palaces, is a colorful and busy spectacle of gondolas and vaporetti.
