From the Tuscan Hills to the birthplace of Western civilization, Central Italy tops the list of the world's most seasoned travelers and offers much more to see and do than anyone can fill into a single trip.
Rome, the "Eternal City" is the quintessential destination for art, culture, faith and romance. From the diverse architecture to the ancient monuments to the tantalizing trattorias to the lively nightlife, a stay in Rome is a feast for the senses. When in Rome, one must visit the Colosseum. The scene of many ancient gladiatorial battles once seated 55,000 and has become the inspiration for many modern sports stadiums.
"The cradle of the Renaissance" awaits in the Florentine Hills, where the Uffizi Gallery is just one of many museums offering an array of cultural riches. Revel in the sprawling vineyards, olive groves and forests in Chianti. Discover the Gothic treasures of Siena, or stay inside the walls of San Gimignano, known as the "city of beautiful towers."
Have an inspired adventure in Cortona, the captivating hillside town made famous by the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. Or choose Arezzo as your vacation home, perfect for touring both Tuscany and Umbria. The Maremma is an ideal destination for accessing the sea and venturing along to Rome, Ostia Antica and Lazio.
Known as the green heart of Italy, Umbria is famous for its spiritual past. Here you will find the places most sacred to St. Francis, from the much-visited cathedral in Assisi to the tranquility of his hermitage on Mt. Subasio above.
