This was a non-stop Italian extravaganza. All stops were architectural gems. Highly recommend this five day tour. Splurge on the optional tours, well worth the cost. Particularly enjoyed the Venice at night. Make sure to bring your walking shoes, this tour requires walking uphill and heavy walking endurance. Not for the faint of heart. Enjoy!

Siena is a beautiful place,wish I had more time on my hands but we’ll worth another visit❤️

A place worth to visit. A view point is a breathtaking experience.

The Sienna Complex Pass is the way to go. You get to see so much.
