Itinerary

This itinerary is the starting point for your tour, but it’s not set in stone. If there are days you would like to change, or specific places you’d like to go, we can work with you to create a personalized program that fits the needs of you and your students.

Day 1: Overnight Flight

Depart from the USA.

Day 2: Venice

Arrive in Venice and meet your ACIS Tour Manager. After a private bus brings you to your hotel, your tour manager takes you into downtown Venice by private motor launch for an orientation walking tour and dinner. Return later to your hotel by private motor launch.

Day 3: Venice

Consisting of an archipelago carved by nearly 150 canals into 118 different islands, the incomparable city of Venice contains a wealth of sights. Arrive by private motor launch in St. Mark's Square where you can see the Basilica of St. Mark and the Bridge of Sighs, which connected the old prisons of Venice to the interrogation rooms of the neighboring Doge's Palace. Then visit the historic Fondaco dei Tedeschi for breathtaking views of the Grand Canal from its rooftop. Stop for a photo at nearby Rialto Bridge en route to an authentic cicchetteria where you will sample traditional Venetian-style tapas. You'll have time this afternoon to explore more of this magical city at your own pace.

Day 4: Florence

Journey today to Florence, where you'll begin to explore la città bella, the glorious center of the Italian Renaissance, on an orientation walking tour led by your tour manager. After dinner, perhaps stroll out to see the iconic Ponte Vecchio, with its bustling gold shops all lit up at night.

Day 5: Florence

This morning, enjoy a timed entrance to the Accademia, where you'll marvel at Michelangelo's famous sculpture, David. Then spend the afternoon discovering more of Florence at your own pace. Perhaps climb San Miniato for spectacular city views, visit the Basilica of Santa Croce or admire the famed works of the Uffizi Gallery. Or you may choose to participate in an optional fresco making workshop, where you'll learn about this traditional Italian art form and channel your inner Michelangelo to paint your own souvenir.

Day 6: Rome

Drive south to Rome today. Upon arrival, visit the iconic and historic Colosseum with a local guide (and a line-avoiding timed reservation) to learn the many stories of this nearly 2,000-year-old Roman landmark that's considered one of the architectural wonders of the ancient world.

Day 7: Rome

Start the day with a sightseeing tour that introduces you to every phase of Rome's history. Explore the awe-inspiring Vatican Museums, including the Sistine Chapel ceiling graced by Michelangelo's spectacular frescos, with audio guides and then continue to St. Peter's Basilica, one of the world's most renowned examples of Renaissance architecture. In the afternoon, you're free to explore more of the Eternal City at your own speed, perhaps improving your language skills by speaking with local shop owners in the quirky Rione Monti district, taking in the amazing frescoes inside the lesser-known Basilica of San Clemente or viewing the art and artifacts inside the Capitoline Museums.

Day 8: Rome

Today is free for you to discover more of Rome's wonders with your tour manager. Perhaps browse through remarkable art museums such as the Borghese Gallery, Palazzo Massimo alle Terme and Doria Pamphilj Gallery, shop for last-minute souvenirs near the Spanish Steps or toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain to ensure your future return to Rome.

Day 9: Departure

Depart for the USA.
