How to enjoy la dolce vita in Italy.

Be enchanted by the Italian joie de vivre and ease of living in Italy’s capital. Explore Rome on the seat of a Vespa and simply stop where the fancy takes you. This may be at the largest amphitheatre in the world, the Colosseum, where the gladiators once did battle, or at the renowned Trevi Fountain, made famous by Marcello Mastroianni’s film “La Dolce Vita”. According to the legend, throwing a coin into the fountain over your right shoulder will bring you luck.

Duration: 1:31, no changes, reservation required, several connections per day.

Florence also offers plenty of exciting architectural and cultural features. From Michelangelo’s David, which must be the most famous sculpture in the history or art, to Botticelli’s Venus in the Galleria degli Uffizi, or the attractive Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge over the Arno.

Florence also has its culinary side. If you like meat, you must not miss the opportunity of enjoying a succulent Bistecca alla Fiorentina. For dessert, we recommend Cantuccini. These hard baked almond biscuits taste best dunked in the amber-coloured dessert wine Vin Santo. Bon appetit and cheers!

Further tips.

Tip 1: travel on to Apulia and discover sunny southern Italian cities such as Lecce, Bari and the Salento Peninsula.

Tip 2: purchase a Greek Islands Pass for the Global Pass, island hop in Greece and discover Rhodes, Crete and the picturesque little town of Santorini, for example.
