ALJ Travelers Plan In-Depth Italy Trip for 2019

Rome will offer travelers amazing ancient and modern wonders including the Coliseum, the Forum and much more.
The final stop in Rome will include a tour of the Vatican Museums including the iconic Sistine Chapel. All photos are from the 2015 ALJ trip to Italy.
Travelers will enjoy the winding streets and alleyways of Venice. They may choose to take an optional ride on Venice's famous gondolas, or spend the day shopping in it's many shops.
Italian streets are narrow and charming. Travelers will enjoy just a simple stroll down cobble stoned streets.
Florence will include tours of the city as well as admission to see Michelangelo's famous David and, for the first time, admission to the Ufizzi, where the famous "Venus de Milo" resides.
Pompeii will thrill amateur archaeologists and tourists alike. Buried in the ash of Mt. Vesuvius, the city is one of the best preserved archaeological digs in the world.
Capri will bring the travelers a much-deserved break from the busy schedule. One of the most beautiful places on Earth, Capri is a small island in the Mediterranean.
The Mediterranean Sea around Capri is crystal clear blue, including the famous Blue Grotto.
