Today your journey takes you on a drive past quaint villages, medieval castles and fruit orchards and cutting across the fertile Adriatic Plains, to the magical lagoon city of Venice. Nothing prepares you for the captivating city of canals and palaces - Venice is simply unique! Built on 117 small islands, it is a pedestrian's city, so get set for a walking tour.
Cruise from Tronchetto Pier and glide romantically past fairytale palaces, through incredible miniature canals to the Piazza San Marco (St. Marks Square), where you disembark. Napoleon dubbed the Square the 'finest drawing room in Europe' for its constant carnival atmosphere! Witness the bronze Moors striking the hour, as they have been doing for the past 500 years! From there to the Doge's Palace, connected by the 'Bridge of Sighs' to its prisons. It was from here that the legendary lover Casanova made his famous escape.

Day 10: Onto Perugia
Drive across the Apennine Mountains, along the Brenta River past Bologna, to Pisa - the hometown of Galileo and a city which makes the most of its claim to fame from its Leaning Tower. It has leaned almost since construction first started, due to the swampy soil beneath it. At a photo stop here, note its striking beauty along with its characteristic tilt. It is the Duomo's (Cathedral) Bell Tower. Together with the Baptistry, these are all a part of the Field of Miracles. Continue to Florence, a shrine to the wonders of the Renaissance, with more artistic treasures per square metre than any other city in the world.
Included in your walking tour of Florence is a visit to the remarkable Duomo (when open for visitors), which is the fourth largest cathedral in the world. It dominates the city's skyline and still defines its scale - no building in town is taller ! Besides it, is the 'Gate to Paradise' - the heavenly gilded bronze doors of the Baptistry, originally a pagan temple and an open-air gallery in Signoria Square. Walk on the famous Ponte Vecchio, the oldest surviving bridge in the city. After all that exercise, add to the feel good factor. It's time to indulge your-self with some more works of art - genuine Florentine leather bags and souvenirs. Happy shopping.
Drive to the magical Piazzale Michelangelo for a view of the city. After an exciting tour, drive to the region of Perugia where on arrival you will be checked into your hotel. Overnight in Perugia.(Breakfast at hotel, Lunch and Dinner at Indian Restaurant )

Day 11: Onto Rome
Rome was not built in a day'- the truth of this oft quoted adage hits you with full force, as we pack in all the 'must see' agenda into our guided panoramic city tour. According to legend, Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus in 753 BC. Start your introduction to Rome with a journey to The Vatican the smallest nation in the world. It boasts a priceless art collection and is probably per square foot the richest country in the world ! The most famous square of The Vatican is St. Peter's Square with St. Peter's Basilica - one of the largest churches in the world. Gaze in awe at Michelangelo's Pieta.
Continue your tour driving past the triumphal Arch of Constantine, one of the most important commemorative monuments of antiquity and then drive through Piazza Venezia, where the grandiose monument to the reunification of Italy is often referred to as the Marble wedding cake ! Pass the Circus Maximus - the Hippodrome - known for its ancient chariot races, which was reconstructed by Hollywood for the well known movie 'Ben Hur' ! Pay tribute to the brave Gladiators of Rome. At this amphitheatre, the notorious and gory gladiatorial games were held, where they fought one another and wild animals while the crowd roared. Pass the ruins of the Roman Forum and end the tour at the famous Trevi Fountain. Legend has it, that if you make a wish and toss a coin over your left shoulder into the fountain, you are sure to return to Rome. We at Anand Yatra look forward to that ! After an exciting tour relax and enjoy your drive to the hotel after dinner.
Note: Due to Rome city regulations, certain roads may be off limits for long distance coaches. This may result in the Rome sightseeing being done partly by foot / public transport. Overnight in Rome.(Breakfast at hotel, Lunch and Dinner at an Indian Restaurant)
