In addition to visiting many of the movie settings, the tour takes guests on walking excursions to explore the true stories behind such historical figures as Leonardo da Vinci and author Thomas Mann, as well as the famous architecture to be found in cities like Milan.
Itinerary highlights include a stay at the gay-friendly hotel Aqualux in Bardolino on Lake Garda. Guests can enjoy the hotel spa and participate in a wine tasting at the Amarone wine cellars.
