Enhance Your Journey

Elevate your experience with a host of options available for an additional cost.

Explore Rome From Below

Descend three levels beneath Rome for a subterranean exploration of 2,000 years of history. See the unique Church of San Clemente, as well as the catacombs of San Sebastian.

Make a Venetian Mask

Pay a guided visit to a Venetian mask-making studio, where you hear about the significance and history of the art form from experts at the craft. Under an artisan’s watchful eye, make a mask of your own, be it inspired by Carnival, theater, modern times or daily Venetian life.

Enjoy a Private Cooking Class in a Family Home

Stroll through a local food market alongside your local host, who then welcomes you into her home. After discovering firsthand how to prepare time-honored Tuscan dishes — including pasta, sauce, a main course and dessert — sit down to the lunch you prepared.

Walk Pisa & Bike Lucca’s City Walls

Travel by private vehicle to Pisa, where you take a guided tour of the Piazza dei Miracoli and Leaning Tower. After lunch at leisure, travel to the beautiful, preserved town of Lucca to bike its city walls. As you see the historic city center and picturesque gardens from above, pause for refreshments at a café, with views of the San Martino Cathedral.
