Itinerary in detail

Every Jacada trip is tailored to your personal preferences and interests. Below you’ll find a sample itinerary to inspire your own custom-designed journey.

Days 1–4

An Italian introduction in Rome

Rome, Italy’s capital and largest city, needs little introduction. You’ll begin your romantic sojourn with three nights in perhaps the most historic city in the world. You’ll have plenty of time to visit the quintessentially romantic Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps – and we’ll arrange a private guided tour of the most important sights.

The great Roman Forum was the centre of civic life for centuries, site of triumphal processions, elections, public speeches and criminal trials. Along the Via Sacra (Sacred Way), Palatine Hill ia one of the most ancient parts of the city, where you’ll enjoy a breathtaking view of the Circus Maximus, an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium. Last but not least, the magnificent Colosseum is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering, and capable of seating up to 50,000 spectators.

Half day tour of Rome’s highlights by Fiat 500

What better introduction to your stay in this fascinating city than a private tour in a Fiat 500? Cruising the streets in this Italian automotive classic, you’ll learn about Rome’s role as Italy’s political capital, its importance as the cradle of Catholicism and its place at the heart of the ancient world. The tour starts in one of the most famous squares in Rome, the Piazza Navona, and takes in the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and the famous Spanish steps.

The Galleria della Carte or Gallery of Maps in the Vatican

Early-access Vatican City tour

Even the Vatican museums can feel like they’re just made for two. Arrive early, when the museums are still closed, and prepare for a tour  with your personal guide. You will pass through room after room full of treasures, before the culmination of the visit, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. The ceiling frescoes and Last Judgement on the altar wall are among the most viewed, and revered, paintings in the world.

Roman cooking class

Having dined your way around Rome, learn how to make some delicious Roman specialities. Your personal chef will welcome you into their kitchen where, after a short introduction, you’ll get hands-on cooking authentic recipes that you can easily recreate back home. After your lesson, you’ll get to sit down and enjoy your just-cooked dishes. If the class is planned for the morning, you can also combine the lesson with a tour of an open-air market.

Days 4–8

Relaxation on the Amalfi Coast

After travelling south by train to Naples, you’ll enjoy a scenic drive to the Amalfi Coast, your base for the next four nights. This magical stretch of coastline, draped along the cliffs on the southern side of the Sorrento Peninsula, between Salerno and the city of Sorrento, is one of the most dramatic and glamorous spots in Italy.

Superyachts and gurgling Italian sports cars exist side-by-side with unchanged rural villages. Some of Europe’s finest restaurants can be found here, thriving on fresh local produce alongside the rustic Neapolitan cooking that to many epitomises Italian cuisine.

On a bespoke private tour, you’ll discover the spectacular coastline and natural amphitheatres between the mountains and the sea. Ravello and the Villas Rufolo and Cimbrone are two sites not to be missed for their splendour and decoration. Both villas have amazingly beautiful gardens. You’ll also explore Positano, considered to be one of the most picturesque of all Italy’s coastal resorts.

History

Capri by private boat

Head out into the Gulf of Naples across to the beautiful island of Capri, a draw to visitors for thousands of years. The tour will include the Li Galli Islands, the legendary home of the sirens who lured Ulysses with their enchanted singing. This is also an ideal place for snorkelling with its clear waters and underwater treasures.

Path of the Gods hike

A different way to explore the stunning Amalfi Coast is to hike along the Path of the Gods, or the ‘Sentiero degli dei’. Named for the number of Roman temples found in the area, this hike is one of the region’s most spectacular. The path snakes through peaceful pinewoods, past hidden caves and offers some seriously picturesque views. The hike has a medium degree of difficulty, and once the steps have been ascended, the walk is either flat or downhill.

The streets of Pompeii in Italy

Pompeii tour

To visit Pompeii is probably as close as we can get to travelling in a time machine back to ancient Rome. In August of 79 AD, Vesuvius had been rumbling for some days and it is estimated that a large part of the population of 20,000 had been evacuated; those that were left were as if suspended in time. Excavation started in the 18th century and continues to this day. You will get to walk Roman streets, look into bars, stroll into Patrician villas, complete with frescoes and mosaics. There is even a mosaic doormat saying ‘beware of the dog’.

Days 8–10

Two nights of art and culture in Florence

Step back into the Renaissance as you arrive in Florence, a beautiful city whose grand piazzas and palazzos play host to the world’s great masterpieces. This is easily one of Europe’s most enchanting and historically influential cities. Some of the world’s greatest Renaissance artworks and sculptures can be found at every turn in the compact historical centre.

The facade of the Duomo in Florence, Italy

In the city’s historic centre, you’ll dive deeper into the Renaissance on a guided walking tour. The Academia Gallery is home to Michelangelo’s ‘David’, one of the finest sculptures ever created. You’ll also visit the church of Santa Maria del Fiore – the famous Duomo – to view Brunelleschi’s magnificent dome; the nearby Campanile of Giotto (bell tower); and Ghiberti’s enchanting ‘Gates of Paradise’, the door to the Baptistry. Continue to the Piazza della Signoria, centre of Florentine politics and home to a captivating outdoor sculpture gallery. Shopping, architecture and history will collide as you stroll over the Ponte Vecchio.

Days 10–12

A two-night escape to Tuscany

Rolling hills dotted with rustic farmhouses, Medieval towns, dark green cypress trees and ranked vines: there are few views more quintessentially Italian than than those you’ll find in the countryside of Tuscany. Spend your time here getting acquainted with an enviable culinary tradition, fine wines, beautiful towns and warm locals. You’ll also have the chance to rise one morning with the dawn’s mist for a stunning hot air balloon flight over the Chianti region.

Hot air ballooning over the vines

After an early start, you’ll take an unforgettable flight over the beautiful hills, vineyards and medieval villages of Tuscany in a hot air balloon. Your pilot will regale you with tales from the history of the area. After gently coming in to land, follow the tradition of all balloonists with a celebratory glass of Champagne.

Days 12–15

The trip comes to a close in beautiful Venice

Sat within a shallow lagoon between the mouths of the Po and Piave rivers, Venice is formed of 118 islands dissected by some 170 canals and connected by over 400 bridges. The entire city is considered a World Heritage Site, an extraordinary architectural masterpiece in which even the smallest building may contain works by some of Europe’s greatest artists.

Iconic attractions on the main Rialto islands are evocative by name alone – Piazza San Marco, the Rialto Bridge, Doge’s Palace, Saint Mark’s Basilica and the Grand Canal – a unique collection of brooding Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque architecture. Days can be spent discovering tucked-away galleries, museums and palazzos. Away from the crowds, other islands are where traditional Venetian culture still runs deep.

The island of Murano in Venice

Three Islands Tour

Visit Venice’s most famous islands, Murano, Burano and Torcello. Your first stop will be Murano, world-famous since the 1200s for the art of glassmaking, where you’ll visit one of Venice’s most important glass factories for a private show. Burano is known for its brightly coloured houses and lace school. The last stop is Torcello, the first inhabited island in the lagoon, where you’ll see its beautiful cathedral with magnificent mosaics dating back to the 1100s.

Dinner at Venissa Ristorante

Venissa Ristorante is nestled in the island of Mazzorba, a 30-minute boat ride from the centre of Venice. Surrounded by vineyards and the lagoon, it doesn’t get much more idyllic than this. Choose to dine at the Michelin-starred restaurant or the osteria – the menus at both are inspired by the fishermen of Burano and the vegetable gardens of the estate. There is also an exceptional wine list with lots of labels from the local area. For something really special, you can dine at a private table surrounded by the vines.
