Italy's Heart and Soul

Rome - Florence
Here is the perfect tale of two cities: Italy's "art" and "soul." Rome, once the capital of the western world, remains the secular capital of Italy and the seat of the Catholic Church, and as such should be on the bucket list of anyone who wants to understand western civilization. When Florence began flexing her muscles in the fifteen century, she was actually giving birth to the Renaissance, which would sweep across Europe in a hundred years and turn it, and the world, upside down. You'll get all this plus a tour of the Chianti region,...

The Three Cities of Art

Rome - Florence - Venice

If everyone wasn't speaking Italian, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in three different countries when you visit Rome, Florence, and Venice. Rome is wide, broad, and majestic. Its baroque piazzas are the size of small ball fields and even in its historic center, which in some places dates back to the Middle Ages, the buildings are massive, as if to proclaim the might of an empire. Florence, on the other hand, was built with a lighter touch, a feminine grace, an early Renaissance sense of delicacy and good taste in...
