All the things you’re dying to ask but haven’t
Stroll across the Rialto bridge and wander the waterways of Venice. Immerse yourself in the Italian Renaissance in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and allow local chefs to help you pair the wine of the region with the area’s authentic dishes. Each region is full of stories and our Nemo guides love to share them - but don’t forget to explore on your own, too. There’s nothing like getting lost in Italy. Bellissimo!
"Venice is jaw-droppingly beautiful, no photo or film could ever match its mysterious canals, gorgeous sunsets or rich history. Nemo curated a fantastic trip around Italy with some incredible tips and recommendations that we never would have thought of."
