Rome


 

Rome is known as the 'Eternal City', the centre of Western Civilization and one of the most widely visited cities in the world.  It is a city of contrasts, both ancient and modern. Romantic and harsh. It is a place of beautiful warm light and many dark corners. 
 
The layers of history in Rome are second to none in the world and to appreciate Rome, in all its glory, it is useful and helpful to have some understanding of what happened here over the centuries.  Whether you do tours with us or another company, it is most helpful to read - do guided tours - watch films.  
 
This city is one of the most important cultural, artistic and intellectual centres in Europe.  It is also home to Vatican City, the centre of the Catholic Church.
 
The history of Rome and Vatican City draw over 58 million visitors each year, almost as many people who live in Italy.  
 
 

 

Florence


 

Once the hub of the Renaissance, Florence is still a city marked by outstanding cultural and artistic splendor. In the modern day this translates into some of the best shopping anywhere for fine products from leather to gold. A perennial favorite of tourists and home to such historical figures as Machiavelli and the Medici clan, all of the finest aspects of Renaissance culture, from literature and art to theater and music still flourish here.
 

Besides tourism, food and wine production are also prominent industries in this city, which is the main city of the Tuscany wine-producing region. The Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Museum house two of the world’s great art collections and seeing the David by Michealangelo, at the Accademia is a moment never to be forgotten.


The Duomo in Florence is as breathtaking as it is massive. This amazing structure can be seen from many vantage points near the city center and it looms in its majesty above the city’s interesting architecture and unique streets. Major attractions: Uffizi museum, Accademia museum with the David, Piazza della Signoria, Duomo di Santa Maria del Fiore, Santa Croce and Santa Maria Novella churches and squares. Other museums of notice are Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti with the Silver museum, the Boboli Gardens and the Palatine Gallery, the Brancacci Chapel, the Museum San Marco. Major theaters and events: Teatro Comunale, Teatro della Pergola, Toscana Opera Festival, Teatro Verdi.

Monterosso Al Mare


 

Monterosso al Mare or "Red Mountain by the sea" (as the town's name would literally be translated in English).  It is the largest of the Cinque Terre towns and offers visitors some of the most beautiful beaches.  
 
It where many people visiting the Cinque Terre national park area base their stay, for Monterosso offers more hotels than all of the 5 villages combined.
 
The narrow alleys and colourful houses of the historic centre are clustered on a hilltop above the port and its seaside promenade.  Stone stairways link the two areas of the town, affoding lovely views of the moutains that tumble onto a wide, sandy beach below, which is mobbed in summer.
 
In Monterosso's historical centre, the 12 century church (Piazza Garibaldi) is striped black in white in the Ligurian Gothic fashion and has an elegant and interesting interior worth stopping in.
 
Shopping in Monterosso is relatively un-interesting apart from the marekt on Thursday morning, where viitors can pick up local anchovies, lemons and home-made pesto sauce.
 
There are numerous seafood restaurants all over the town and during the summer months in Monterosso the town has numerous discos and bars that are open well into the night.   Monterosso al Mare is definitly our top pick for night life in the Cinque Terre national park.
