From the living time capsule that is Rome to the astonishing beauty of the Amalfi Coast to the sensory delights of Tuscany and beyond, Italy is one of the easiest countries to lose oneself in. This enchanting journey touches all of its must-sees and -dos, wrapping the Colosseum and Pompeii, the quiet magic of Capri, San Gimignano’s bucolic splendor, and the wonders of Florence and Venice together into a seamless experience built to satisfy every whim.

It starts in Rome, capital of the ancient empire and modern Italy alike. With the help of a private guide and driver, you’ll get a glimpse of the city’s imperial past on a tour that takes you from the imposing ruins of the Colosseum to Palantine Hill to the grand Forum, the very center of political life in ancient times. Later, explore Vatican City (the world’s smallest country) and head down the Appian Way for a macabre encounter deep underground at the Catacombs, where early Christians buried their dead and worshipped in secret. From Rome, we head south to Sorrento, but not before pausing to explore the ruins of Pompeii, the doomed city buried beneath volcanic ash by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The scenic beauty of the Amalfi Coast is on full display later on a privately guided visit to two UNESCO-protected towns: cliffside Positano and charming Amalfi itself. Discover the magical island of Capri, home to beautiful villas, charming towns, and the fascinating Blue Grotto sea cave before bidding addio to Amalfi and returning north, bound for Florence. One of Europe’s most stunning cities, the cradle of the Renaissance is an art lover’s dream come to life. A private walking tour – with stops at Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, and Galleria dell’Accademia, home to Michelangelo’s “David” – will introduce you to its charms, while a self-guided stroll down its handsome boutique-lined avenues will lift your spirits while lightening your wallet. Later, spend the day in the Tuscan countryside on a private excursion to Siena and San Gimignano, where you’ll taste local wines over lunch at a local farmhouse. The journey ends in romantic Venice, which you’ll explore first on foot with a private guide, and later by gondola at dusk on a private cruise through the city’s famous canals. But before you say goodbye, spend a delightful day learning the tricks of time-tested crafts straight from the artisans themselves on Murano and Burano, Venice’s glass- and lacework islands. ...

Day 2: Rome

Today, you'll have an opportunity to let your mind wander, as you walk in the footsteps of ancient Romans. Meet your private guide and vehicle, and head to Rome's iconic Colosseum, one of the world's most celebrated buildings. Built 2,000 years ago, this epic stadium formerly held gladiatorial contests and other public spectacles. Gaze out across the stands and imagine the roar of 80,000 boisterous spectators from ancient Rome. Going one step farther, you'll have some very special access at the Colosseum, not easily acquired. Joining a small group of 25 participants plus a specialized Colosseum guide, you'll walk through the archway and onto the first of two restricted areas; the arena floor, where the infamous gladiatorial games were held. Then, descend into the Colosseum dungeons, another restricted area, to learn about the complex labyrinth that lived under the arena floor, filled with cages and prisons, where fighters and beasts awaited their fate. Back at ground level, reconvene with your private guide, who will lead you to another city icon: Palatine Hill; formerly an exclusive neighborhood which was home to political figures forming the backbone of the Roman Empire. Finally, descend into the grand Roman Forum, with the rostrum where Mark Anthony made his impassioned speech over the body of Julius Caesar. The Forum was the public center of Roman political life, where the people came together to debate the ancient policies and people that governed their lives. Afterward, enjoy a private return transfer to your hotel. Please note, the order of your tour may be adjusted to accommodate access to the exclusive Colosseum Underground area.

Day 3: Rome

Meet your private guide and driver, and depart on a full day tour, discovering Vatican City and the ancient Appian Way Catacombs. Enveloped by Rome, and as the smallest independent city-state in the world, the power and prestige of Vatican City, home to the Pope, is remarkable. Visit the Vatican Museums, discovering the most important collections, from the Museuo Pio Clementino and the Gallery of the Candelabras, the Tapestries, and the Maps, to the so-called rooms of Raphael in the apartment of Julius II, finally ending in the iconic Sistine Chapel, featuring the masterpiece ceiling painted by Michaelangelo, one of the most revered artistic works in human history. After, take to the grand St. Peter's Square, admiring the 16th century St. Peter's Basilica, the world's largest church, which you'll visit (if not closed due to religious ceremony). Leaving the Vatican, you'll head out along the ancient Appian Way, one of the most critical roads of the ancient Roman Republic, and head deep underground to visit Rome's famous Catacombs. Over 2,000 years ago, thousands of early Christians were buried underground here, and while all bones have been removed, you'll learn of countless amazing stories about this sacred burial place. Once you reach the Catacombs, you'll join others and enter as a group, as private visits of this protected site are not possible. Explore the narrow, cavernous subterranean passageways, seeing the various burial chambers dug into the rock, lit just enough to maintain its somber aura.

Meet your private driver for a transfer to Sorrento. En route, you'll stop at the legendary site of Pompeii, where a private local guide will take you on a 2-hour visit of this important historic site. Nearly 2,000 years ago, Pompeii was completely destroyed in the catastrophic 79 A.D. eruption of Mount Vesuvius, leaving the ancient Roman city buried under 15 to 20 feet of volcanic ash, and preserved therein. Modern archaeologists have since uncovered the remains of the former city, leaving an incredibly vast, and somewhat somber site to explore. Walk through some of the ancient streets of Pompeii where you can see the baths, forums and villas built by the prosperous Romans over 150 years before the eruption. Marvel at the fabulously preserved fresco paintings which adorn the walls and floors of the villas. See the ancient amphitheaters, gladiator barracks, and houses of former Pompeii residents, before continuing on your drive to Sorrento.

Accommodation: Antiche Mura

With access from the famous Piazza Tasso, Hotel Antiche Mura is located in a prominent yet peaceful position in the heart of Sorrento.

Day 5: Sorrento

Meet your private guide and driver and depart on a discovery of the Amalfi Coast today, visiting two of the iconic UNESCO World Heritage-listed towns which beckon global travelers with their picturesque beauty; Positano and Amalfi. Follow the scenic coastline to the cliffside town Positano, made popular largely by writer John Steinbeck. Wander this colorful town's steep and narrow streets, as you soak in the aura of this historic fishing village which Steinbeck suggested, "bites deep". Look for the region's renowned orange, lemon and olive groves on the terraced gardens of the town before continuing along the breathtaking and winding road to the popular holiday town of Amalfi, backed by dramatic cliffs. The town's 11th century cathedral is a celebrated for its medieval architecture, a fine example of the Norman-meets-Byzantine style that was once dominant in Italy's south.

A private guide will be waiting for you on your arrival to Capri, taking you along winding streets and into the main square, Piazza Umberto, with a quaint white church and several open-air cafes where you can sit and watch the world drift by.

Visit the island's Gardens of Augustus, a stunning display of the rich flora of Capri, spread across terraces with incredible views of the famed Faraglioni Rocks, rising like companion pillars from the sea below. You'll also visit Villa San Michele, a beautiful early 20th century residence built on the ruins of the Roman Emperor Tiberius' villa, with commanding views of Capri town and it's harbor. Enjoy the relaxed pace of your day before you depart back to port, and onward back to Sorrento.

  • Julie S — July 05, 2019 — Europe

    Thank you to Daniel for making our family’s trip to Greece so enjoyable and memorable. We asked him for an “Instagram” worthy trip, and he delivered! The hotels on the islands were stunning, and our private tour guides at each stop easily accommodated our individual wishes. Our trip was the perfect mix of relaxation and exploration.

  • Elizabeth B — July 20, 2019 — Europe

    I cannot tell you how impressed we were with your services. Everything from the drivers to the hotels to guides was five stars! We never had to wait in line and were treated like royalty. I highly recommend the private boat ride/tour to Capri. It was fabulous! We had never been to Italy and left feeling like we learned so much. We fell in love with the people and culture. We cannot wait to have Kensington book our next adventure.

    It was the first time we have used a company of this nature to manage our bookings. Most often I book my rooms, and tours, but after this experience, I would definetely use Kensington again for a trip of this type. Our Destination truly supported us and allowed us to make changes until the plan was just perfect for us. This truly showed when we were in country and everthing went off perfectly. I was worried to have other book items on my families behalf seeing as we were traveling with kids (age 8 and 10), but I feel our destination Expert did take that into account and it was perfect.

    I cannot tell you how impressed we were with your services. Everything from the drivers to the hotels to guides was 5 stars! We never had to wait in line and were treated like royalty. I highly recommend the private boat ride/tour to Capri. It was fabulous! We had never been to Italy and left feeling like we learned so much. We fell in love with the people and culture. We cannot wait to have Kensington book our next adventure.

    There is so much to say about this amazing family trip to northern Spain we just came home from, but in short, the trip was even more than we could have hoped for - From the planning to the tour guides, drivers and accommodations our needs were met and in most cases surpassed. There is no way the trip could have been as successful without the help of Maryanne from Kensington Tours and her team.

    Our Iceland trip was fantastic. From planning with Melissa (many times over until we had it right) to being greeted in Iceland and all of the wonderful tours we took, we had a fabulous time. Our guide, Sigga, was excellent. She guided us, told us tales of Iceland, was extremely accommodating with my elderly mom. We enjoyed being with her very much. Inke, our guide to the glacier, was also wonderful. We had a great time and felt Kensington did a fabulous job. Thanks!

    The trip overall was amazing and all the activities and travel plans went so very smoothly. Our whole familiy really enjoyed every day of the trip. Patrick McCallion, the expert from your agency who helped us, was awesome! He not only set up everything perfectly for us but helped us with reservations for dinners at fine dining places and answered many questions we had in advance. We did leave our glasses in the van at one point in Barcelona and had to contact the local agent who quickly retrieved the glasses for us without any problem. We highly recommend this agency given the quality of the experience, the smoothness of the itinerary, and the flexibility to tailored the experience to our needs. Thank

    This was our 6th Kensington tour. We have gone as a couple on trips and taken our children sometimes to destinations all over the world. We have never been disappointed and have had the most personal and professional service. We would not even consider using anyone else. Thank you Alania for everything! Our most recent trip to Russia and Scandinavia was fabulous and perfectly planned!
