Hotel check-in 
Sightseeing at Lago Di Garda
(Lake of Garda, the most Mediterranean of the Alpine Italian lakes, shows itself in its wonderful surrounding of natural luminosity and colours: a unique holiday spot, in all seasons. Its shores, studded with villages and small towns, add the charm of a built up landscape to the beauty of its rich natural environment, and the spell of ancient findings of Roman settlements, medieval fortresses, imposing buildings and noble villas. With its Romanesque parish churches, its Baroque-style churches and its sanctuaries, with its monasteries and hermitages, lake Garda shows all the different aspects of its personality, even as an incomparable spiritual place.
Natural, aquatic and fun parks around the lake offer both adults and children unforgettable amusement. Nobody can be bored here, in the lake Garda nights with their thousand different amusements. Discos, pubs, piano-bars, all are sure attractions for spending pleasant nights in this magic atmosphere, among the lights glittering on the lake. And fire works often lit up the summer nights.)

Day 4 – Rimini (I)

Breakfast
All day sightseeings including
The Tempio Malatestiano (Italian Malatesta Temple) is the cathedral church ofRiminiItaly.

The area is surrounded by Arcobaleno (Italian: rainbow), a monorail. 10,000 plants and 5,000 miniature trees are integrated in the landscape. To fill the water basins 2,500 m3 of water are needed. 17 miniature trains are running in the system. On an area of 12,000 m2 there is a replica of the Grand Canal of Venice with reproductions of 119 buildings in scale of 1:5. The campanile on St. Mark’s Squarehas a height of 20 metres)
Riccione Beaches and Spas

The first you’ll come to is Riccione, one of Italy’s most popular holiday resorts, with thermal springs. Shortly beyond it is the small spa and seaside resort of Misano Adriatico, and beyond that the largest of them, Cattolica. Like the beaches on Rimini’s north coast, Cattolica has been a favorite seaside resort since the mid-19th century, with wide boulevards, shops, and hotels. In addition to its long beach, the town offers a choice of active sports: sailing, wind-surfing, water-skiing, tennis, and riding.)

Day 5 – Rimini (I) – San Marino (I) – Florence (I) – Pisa (I)

Breakfast Hotel Check out
Sightseeing at San Marino including
Guaita Castle
(The Guaita fortress is the oldest of the three towers constructed on Monte Titano, and the most famous. It was built in the 11th century and served briefly as a prison. It is one of the three towers depicted on both the national flag andcoat of arms. Is is registered as one of World Heritage Sites in 2008.)
After Florence sightseeing including
Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Piazza Duomo
(Piazza Duomo and the group of buildings that form its cathedral complex gather some of Italy’s greatest artistic treasures into one relatively small area. As you tour the baptistery, the bell tower, the cathedral, and its museum, you’ll see some of the best-known masterpieces of art and architecture by the greatest artists of the Italian Renaissance — Ghiberti, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Giotto, and Michelangelo. Begin by walking around the square to admire the intricate inlaid marble exteriors, then step inside each one to look more closely at the stained glass works of art that greet you wherever you look.)
Transfer to Pisa
Hotel check-in sightseeing including
The Leaning Tower of Pisa
(Every child has heard of it, and every visitor to Pisa probably heads first to what is undoubtedly the world’s most famous tower: La Torre Pendente, the leaning campanile standing next to the cathedral. The foundation stone was laid in 1173, when Pisa was Italy’s most powerful maritime republic, and its loggia-like tiers were modeled after the cathedral facade. Even before the third story was completed, the tower had already begun to sink alarmingly on its south side. When counterweighting the north side and slightly increasing the height of the south walls proved ineffective, construction was halted. Almost 100 years later work resumed, attempting to counteract the tilt by angling the upper stories more towards the vertical. The open bell-chamber was added to the white marble tower in 1350-72, by Tommaso Pisano.)

Shopping and sightseeing including
Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II: Luxury Shops and Elegant Cafés
(Forming one side of Piazza del Duomo and opening on the other side to Piazza della Scala, the grand Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II was designed by Giuseppe Mengoni and built between 1865 and 1877. It was then the largest shopping arcade in Europe, with a dome soaring 48 meters above its mosaic floor. Marking the beginning of modern architecture in Italy, today it stands as a splendid example of 19th-century industrial iron and glass construction. And it’s still a beautiful, vibrant place where locals meet for lunch or coffee in its elegant cafés and browse in its luxury shops. It is so much a part of local life that the inhabitants of Milan refer to it as “il salotto” (the salon).)

Day 7 – Milano (I)

Breakfast
All day city tour sightseeings including
Il Duomo (Cathedral)
(The massive Cathedral of Santa Maria Nascente, which the Milanese call just “Il Duomo” is among the world’s largest (it holds up to 40,000 people) and most magnificent churches, the ultimate example of the Flamboyant Gothic style. It was begun in the 14th century, but its façade was not completed until the early 1800s, under Napoleon. The roof is topped by 135 delicately carved stone pinnacles and the exterior is decorated with 2,245 marble statues. The dim interior, in striking contrast to the brilliant and richly patterned exterior, makes a powerful impression with its 52 gigantic pillars. The stained-glass windows in the nave (mostly 15th-16th centuries) are the largest in the world; the earliest of them are in the south aisle. Highlights include the seven-branched bronze candelabrum by Nicholas of Verdun (c. 1200) in the north transept, the 16th-century tomb of Gian Giacomo Medici, and the jeweled gold reliquary of San Carlo Borromeo in the octagonal Borromeo Chapel leading off the crypt. Behind the high altar, the choir has deeply carved panels, and misericords under the seats.)
Castello Sforzesco
(The Castello Sforzesco, held by the Visconti and the Sforza families who ruled Milan from 1277 to 1447 and from 1450 to 1535 respectively, was built in 1368 and rebuilt in 1450. The 70-meter Torre de Filarete is a 1905 reproduction of the original gate-tower. The Castello houses the Musei del Castello Sforzesco, a series of museums, one of which features sculpture. The collection includes the Pietà Rondanini, Michelangelo’s last masterpiece, brought here in 1953 from the Palazzo Rondanini in Rome. Other museums feature a collection of decorative art, prehistoric and Egyptian antiquities, a collection of musical history, and an armory of weapons and medieval armor. The picture gallery includes paintings by Bellini, Correggio, Mantegna, Bergognone, Foppa, Lotto, Tintoretto, and Antonello da Messina. Between the two rear courtyards of the Castello, a passage leads into the park, originally the garden of the dukes of Milan and later a military training ground.)
