10 or 14 days
Rome, Florence, Delphi, Athens, extension to Greek Islands

Do you like your temples well-preserved like the Pantheon or crumbling like the Parthenon?

Italy and Greece practically own the early history of Western civilization, which becomes vividly clear as you walk through the ruins of the Roman Forum and the Acropolis in Athens. In Vatican City, crane your neck in awe inside St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. In Delphi, look deep into Greece's mythical past.
