Look around the city’s impressive cathedral, where the celebrated Holy Robe – said to be the tunic of Christ – is preserved and occasionally displayed. Next highlight is undoubtedly Porta Nigra. Later, drive to Koblenz, famous as the location of the confluence of the Rhine and Mosel Rivers.

After some free time, you’ll head to another vintage Italian city: Venice.

Day 12: Venice – Rome (B)

Spend the morning in the company of a knowledgeable local guide as you explore Venice. Take a waterbus ride to San Marco Island, a memorable crossing of the lagoon that gives you a real taste of the city’s charm as you approach the dreamy spires and distinctive waterside buildings. Start in the Piazza with the Basilica di San Marco – a stunning piece of Byzantine architecture, then go on to the Bridge of Sighs, which connects the old prison to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace. Afterwards see some traditional Venetian craftwork at close quarters with a demonstration by Murano glassblowers. Later, ride through the warren of waterways on a gondola – for most people this optional excursion is a must.
