Travel Inspiration: Investigating Italy
Ah Italy. If you’ve been mulling over the idea of revisiting the Boot, the time is now. Never been? Don’t wait another minute.
Italy, like her cuisine, is best savored—one day, one person, one meal, one museum at a time. This 11-day sample itinerary begins at the Piazza San Marco in the center of Venice—rightfully known as one of the world’s most beautiful squares. Later, you’ll board the first-class train for a ride to Florence, literally and figuratively the center of Tuscany. It is a city of many distinctions: birthplace of the Renaissance movement; home of the greatest painting collections in Europe; and the city around which much of Italian history revolves. Then, a day trip through Tuscany. The heartland of Italy is a rolling patchwork of ancient farms, olive groves, and vineyards. Then it’s off to begin our exploration of the glorious and ancient city of Rome, beginning at The Trevi Fountain, where Anita Ekberg cooled off at night in Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita.”
