Trip Summary
2 nights in Rome

Rome is Italy's treasure, packed with masterpieces from more than two millennia of artistic achievement. Modern Rome has one foot in the past, one in the present. Find a cafe at summer twilight and watch the shades of pink turn to gold and copper before night finally falls. That's when another Rome comes alive; restaurants and cafes grow more animated and after dinner you can have a gelato (or an espresso in winter) or stroll by the fountains or through Piazza Navona, and the night is yours.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Roman Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican, Pantheon, Capitoline Museums, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Ancient Appian Way, Borghese Gallery and so much more!


1 nights in Spoleto

A picturesque walled medieval hill town that boasts a thousand-year-old history. The first Roman settlement, Spoletium, began in 241 BC and there are Roman remnants throughout the historic center. The town is built on a hillside with most of the sites in the compact upper town. Above the town is a medieval Rocca and spanning the deep gorge to one side of the Rocca is the most famous sight, Ponte delle Torri or Bridge of Towers.

Must See`s:
Ponte delle Torri ( a 14th century bridge built over the foundation of a Roman aqueduct); Rocca Albornoziana (built on the foundation of the Roman acropolis in the 14th century); Piazza del Duomo and the Duomo are at the foot of a scenic stairway (The Teatro Caio Melisso, one of Italy`s first theaters, is on one side of the square); Piazza del Mercato (once the site of the Roman Forum); Casa Romana (believed to have been the house of Vespasia Polla, mother of Emperor Vespasian who was responsible for building the Roman Colosseum); The Roman Theater (built in the first century).



2 nights in Perugia

A lively medieval walled hill town that is Umbria`s main city. The historic center abounds with cultural and architectural masterpieces and offers one of the most extensive museum collections in Italy. Perugia is famous for chocolate and holds its chocolate festival, Eurochocolate, in mid-October. It also hosts a huge international Jazz Festival, the Umbria Jazz Festival that runs for two weeks in July and MusicFestPerugia, two weeks of classical music performances in historic monuments and churches in August. A truly pleasurable experience is to wander through the narrow streets and along the walls at the edge of town for views of the valley. It is also a good base for visiting other hill towns in Umbria such as Assisi, Spello, and Gubbio.

Must See`s:
Piazza IV Novembre
(a large, open square with Fontana Maggiore, surrounded by the Duomo), the Palazzo dei Priori, and medieval buildings with shops and bars); Fontana Maggiore ( decorated with intricately carved panels of astrological signs, Aesop`s fables, mythical monsters); Palazzo dei Priori (houses the National Art Gallery of Umbria and three other museums); Corso Vannucci (main pedestrian street, lined with elegant shops, restaurants and bars); Rocca Paolina (fortress built by Pope Paul III over buildings he destroyed); 3rd century BC Etruscan well, the Etruscan Arch (one of the city gates), and remains of the massive Etruscan wall around the city); Tempio di Sant`Angelo (5th century Roman temple); remains of the Roman wall and Roman city gates.



2 nights in Florence

Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is one of Italy`s most atmospheric and pleasant, retaining a strong resemblance to the small late-medieval center that contributed so much to the cultural and political development of Europe. Art treasures Michelangelo`s David Botticelli`s Birth of Venus, and Raphael's La Velata draw millions of visitors every year. Throw into the mix fabulous architecture (the Duomo with Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's campanile, Santa Croce), fine restaurants and earthy trattorie, plus leading designer boutiques and bustling outdoor markets, and the city of the Renaissance becomes quite simply one of the world`s must-see sights.

Recommended Stay: At least 2 nights
Must See`s:
The Duomo Complex, Church of Santa Croce, The Cathedral, The Uffizi Gallery, Galleria dell`Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens and so much more!

Italy

For centuries, Italy has drawn foreign visitors, mostly for its architectural, artistic and scenic splendors. Italy can truly be all things to all people. For some the Italian experience is full of passion and excitement, urbanity, crowds and noise. For others it is a quiet rural idyll where the traditional life can be experienced. Its great cities are replete with fantastic works of art ranging from the Roman times to the Renaissance. Even then, many visitors will forego the rich attractions of culture in favor of some of the most unspoilt beaches and spectacular mountains in the world.
