How does Umbria-Rome-Amalfi Coast sound???
Tuscany South: The region's most picturesque countryside, with rolling hills dotted with cypress trees, scenic hill towns, and sweeping views of the countryside. Famous for its wines including Brunello and Chianti as well as its hearty cuisine. Close to Florence and other gorgeous, smaller towns including Siena, home of the Palio; San Gimignano famous for its medieval towers; and the scenic vineyards of Chianti Valley.
Tuscany North: A more urban corner of Tuscany, close to the region's major cities: Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance, Pisa, best known for its leaning tower, and Lucca, a well preserved walled city. Less country scenery, but excellent access to the coast, the highway and the Cinque Terre, the five famous seaside villages.
*The Amalfi Coast: The very steep landscape of this coast is not for the faint-hearted; nearly every town is a maze of steps and the coastal highways are breathtaking in more ways than one. Astounding variety of activities including sailing to Capri ("the best shopping this side of Rome"), exploring ancient Pompeii, hiking the spectacular seaside paths, or feasting on fresh seafood.
Rome: Best known for its ancient sites including the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Circus Maximus and the country within the city, Vatican City, home to the Pope and the Sistine Chapel. Plenty of churches to explore, fountains to admire, and museums to visit.
*Sardinia: Situated on the shores of a bay on the northwest coast in an non-touristy area. Features a large colorful harbor filled with fishing sailboats and sturdy ancient city walls boasting numerous towers. Animated piazzas and the old streets are filled with vibrancy.
Sicily: The largest Mediterranean island famous for Mt. Etna, Europe's largest active volcano. Cities of Siracusa, Taormina, Agrigento, and Catania offer a unique mix of Greek and Roman architecture. Known for its fresh seafood, almonds, cannoli, and marzipan.
