Because this is a photo tour, the priority of this trip will be focused on making the best photographs you can possibly make. This means we’ve structured the itinerary to coincide with the best lighting, i.e., sunrise or sunset shooting. For this tour and time of year, both sunrise and sunset is around 6:30 AM and 6:30 PM respectively. We likely will be eating dinners later than you are used to.
In March, weather is mild and can be warm, or chilly depending on where you are. It is getting warmer, and there is less rain.
Rome: 40-60 ° F
Florence: 40-60 ° F
Venice: 40-50 ° F
This tour features a lot of walking on flat ground, sometimes cobblestone or grassy areas. There will be no hiking or dangerous terrain, but do not underestimate the amount of walking around these cities! We will be taking subways, water taxis, etc. but you will want to explore by foot and get lost in wonder.
