Northern Italy Tours
Rich with epic scenery and outstanding cuisine, Northern Italy will capture your imagination and your appetite.
Whether you want to linger lakeside at Lake Como in the foothills of the Alps, swim in the blue-green Mediterranean, or admire legendary artworks like Michelangelo’s masterpiece on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, you’ll enjoy unforgettable landscapes, food and people.
Choose from our Northern Italy tours and explore iconic cultural treasures such as the Roman Colosseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or the famous enclosed Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence. See Lake Garda and neighboring Italian lakes, where the aristocracy gazed on the majestic Dolomites from estates and castles built centuries ago.
Hear the serenade of a Venice gondolier, then watch craftspeople demonstrate glass blowing techniques that have endured for centuries. Find your fashion statement at the boutiques of Milan and Rome, and shop local markets and alleys for leather ware and other souvenirs.
Grand European Travel ensures your Northern Italy tour packages deliver precious memories with exclusive experiences, like a demonstration of gold leaf on leather in Florence, a boat ride along the coast at Cinque Terre, priority access into the Vatican museums, a meal on the enchanting Isola Madre island in Lake Maggiore, or a special dinner at the Vatican's Cortile del Giardino Quadrato with views of the cupola of St. Peters.
Sample gelato, wine, the prized olive oil of Tuscany, and the heritage cheeses of the region such as fontina and Parmigiano-Reggiano. Dig into creamy risotto and polenta, perhaps enhanced with local truffles or wild mushrooms, or savor classic pesto, a signature of Genoa. Indulge in paper-thin slices of Prosciutto di Sauris, a delicately delicious traditional ham. Sip Campari and soda under an umbrella on a bustling, atmospheric piazza, or revive your energy with a tiny, rocket-fuel espresso and tiramisu.
