Italian Lakes tour vs. 1 week Venice, Florence & Rome tour?

We've been considering one of these two tours and besides the 2 extra days for the Italian Lakes tour, can't figure out why the Italian Lakes tour is so much more expensive. The two tours do stay at different hotels but other than that, and the 2 days at Lake Como, the tours are very similar according to the "detailed" descriptions.

For the dates we're looking at, there is a $2,300 per person difference between the two tours. That just seems like too much for 2 extra days! We did try calling Taulk and the agent we spoke with had no additional information, just speculated that the longer tour stayed in better hotels.

If anyone has any additional information on the differences between these two tours it would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps the moderator will chime in.

Thank You
