Adventures by Disney in Italy

Italy is one of the most requested travel destinations in the world and it’s not hard to see why. This exquisite country boasts a long history, a rich culture, and decadent cuisine. The problem with visiting Italy isn’t being bored – it’s having too many options! How do you figure out which sites you should see, what you should avoid and how exactly do you get from one location to the next (a good friend recently shared the only city in the world he will not drive in is Rome – so let’s cross rental car off our list). A guided tour can answer all of these questions for you. And for a first trip to Italy, we love the Italy itinerary from Adventures by Disney. (They also offer an Italy and Amalfi Coast or an Italy and Switzerland option for those subsequent trips after you fall in love with this beautiful country.)

 Before we delve into the details of this trip, just a quick overview of Adventures by Disney. Disney, at its heart, is a company founded on storytelling, and while the name Disney has become synonymous with a certain mouse and a castle in a theme park or two, the Disney legacy of storytelling is much more robust. And what better place to tell a story than where it happened? Stories of battles fought, royal intrigue and espionage replace the fairytales on an Adventures by Disney trip – but the passion to bring the story to life remains unchanged.

You begin your Adventures by Disney Italy trip in Rome where you will tour the Colosseum on your first day before your delicious welcome feast. But you will want to turn in early since you have an early wake up call on Day 2 – but it will be worth it as you take part in an exclusive, private guided tour of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel before it opens to the public. Before you leave Rome on Day 3 you will visit St. Peter’s Basilica to marvel at one of the largest churches in the world.

Then you will travel to Tuscany – taking time to explore Orvieto before continuing to Tavarnelle Val di Pesa. Day 4 is what dreams of Tuscany are made of. Visit a working farm in the heart of the Chianti region where you will learn how to make pasta. And then the adults will enjoy a wine tasting while the kids get to pick fresh herbs and learn how to infuse olive oil. And as if that wasn’t the perfect Tuscan day, let’s end with a banquet in a 15th-century castle.

Day 5 will take you to Florence where your private guide will lead you on an exploration of the cities most famous sites – including Michelangelo’s David, the Duomo, Baptistry, Piazza della Signoria, Piazza della Repubblica, Ponte Vecchio and more. But there still is so much of Italy to see…

And so on Day 6 you will travel by train to Venice. Once in Venice you will take an iconic gondola ride where you glide along the famed Grand Canal. Then take a walking tour to Piazza San Marco and hear the stories of intrigue and mystery from Venice’s past. Your final full day in Italy will be spent in Venice exploring the Doges Palace and then making your own Venetian Carnevale mask. Finally, board the Jolly Roger, a pirate galleon modeled after the ships of the Venetian Republic for your farewell dinner.

Adventures by Disney Italy brings the best of Italy to a single trip filled with exclusive outings, delicious food, unique experiences and the legendary Disney storytelling at the heart of it all. The only question left is: Are you ready to adventure?
