Today, you may choose not to stray too far and relax by the beach or venture off to nearby towns. In the morning, you could take a short ferry ride to the region’s namesake, Amalfi, to admire the medieval architecture.

Set sail for Capri, where you will be given several hours to wander the island at your own pace. You will also have the chance to enjoy the sea to its fullest, passing wondrous rock formations and stopping for an opportunity to swim in the crystal blue water.

Day 7: Vatican

Without ever breaking Rome’s outer borders you will visit the smallest country in the world: Vatican City. Peruse the art of the Vatican Museums, marvel at St. Peter’s Basilica, and gaze at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, accompanied by the knowledge your private tour guide shares with you.

Day 8: Travel to Florence

Kick back and enjoy your luxury train ride from Rome to Florence, complete with refreshments and an entertainment system. Once you reach Florence, you have the afternoon to yourself, but be sure to make your way to one of your hotel’s terraces to take in the panoramic view of the city’s rooftops and the Arno River. This evening, attend a cooking class where you will learn to make classics like pasta bolognese and chicken cacciatora.

For the day, you will have a private driver at your disposal to take you to one of the most renowned wine regions of Italy, Chianti. Wind your way through the rolling landscape of Tuscany to quaint hilltop towns with no shortage of wine bars, cafes, and craft shops.
