Once the center of the legendary Roman Empire, Italy still charms you with its old-fashioned ways and frank mannerisms. Italy is also a country that revels in its eccentricities and contradictions best captured in the historic Roman ruins, museums and art galleries, narrow alleys and friendly open-squared piazzas, active volcanoes and quaint streams, plush Riviera and legendary islands, beaches and the Mediterranean Sea, romantic cities on timeless backwaters and canals.
TSI Holidays offers outbound tours to Italy so that you can experience each facet of this charming boot-shaped country on the Mediterranean Sea at your own pace.
With numerous sightseeing places, Rome can be a handful for tourists and is best seen on an independent tour.
