Europe

Italy’s diverse terrain and varying regions provide endless locales for family fun. Enjoy the sweeping landscape of the many wine regions and farmland or take to the metropolitan areas for history, shopping and incredible dining.

 

Venice

This capital city of the Veneto region in northern Italy is made up of more than 100 tiny islands, all connected by boat or gondola. The canal system is the most popular mode of transportation, after walking and biking through the cobblestone streets. The Grand Canal leads to Saint Mark’s Basilica in the Piazza San Marco in the heart of Venice. The winding canal system and Renaissance and Gothic architecture create a unique and exceptional city.

 

Positano/Amalfi Coast 

Positano and the Amalfi Coast offer incredible natural beauty and quaint village living. Just a short walk from the vibrantly painted city of Positano lays the pristine beach lining the coast of Amalfi. Both villages, located side by side, boast scenic hikes, swimming, boating, shopping and fresh seafood.

 

Florence

Some of the world’s greatest art, history and architecture reside in Florence. The Duomo Cathedral, Galleria dell’Accademia and the Uffizi Gallery are just a few of the many iconic, artistic destinations in Florence.

Rome 

As Italy’s capital and most famous city, Rome boasts some of the world’s oldest ruins, art and architecture. The Colosseum, St. Peter’s Basilica and Vatican City are just a few of Rome’s many claims to fame.

 

Cinque Terre 

Cinque Terre is a seaside community compiled of harbors and picturesque villages. These five ancient towns consist primarily of brightly painted homes, beautiful vineyards, sweeping coastline views, hiking, swimming, shops and restaurants. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is incredibly walkable; some areas don’t allow cars once inside the town.

 

Palermo

Capital of the Italian island Sicily, Palermo is the perfect locale for beach and city lovers. Explore the city’s rich history with a tour through the Palermo Cathedral royal tombs built in the 12th century. Take in the incredible architecture and palaces complete with Byzantine mosaics. Hit the many street markets for local goods, fresh produce and port-side cafés overlooking the water.
