Get to know Italy in Winter Rome, Italy
We’re often so quick to associate Italy with summer, but we’ve we’re saying ‘no grazie’ to melted gelato and scorching pebble beaches in favour of the country’s off-season – winter! Keen to share a quieter side of Italy, Intrepid Travel is offering an eight-day Highlights of Italy in Winter tour beginning in Rome.
You’ll walk the crumbling ruins of Rome, float over Venice, wander the museums of Florence, explore the narrow streets of Pisa, and learn to make pasta in Bologna. And Mother Nature may even send you some snow (although that is extremely rare). There are regular departures between November and March, so if you want to avoid the crowds – and the sweat – this could be the way to go.
- C’mon, who doesn’t want to visit Rome, Florence, Pisa, Bologna and Venice?
- Enjoy the squares, galleries and pizza with fewer people around
- There’s plenty of free time to explore, as well as great optional activities, like pasta-making classes
- Eight days isn’t enough to really enjoy Italy, so think about adding days at either end
The eight-day Highlights of Italy in Winter tour with Intrepid starts at AU$2,780 a person, twin share.
