Known as “the green heart of Italy,” Umbria is a captivating region of rolling hills and vineyards, famous for its delectable food, world-class art and extraordinary architecture. Securely on the “road less traveled” Umbria is home to some of the oldest and well-preserved medieval towns in Italy and we’ll see ancient city walls and cobbled streets as we visit Perugia, Assisi, Deruta, Spoleto, Spello and Arezzo.  Journeying into Tuscany we head for Florence and a three-night stay in the birthplace of the Renaissance—from the 14th–16th cen­turies, the arts, science and architecture flour­ished here. Today, Florence is a stunning medieval city considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful with its palaces, churches and museums. According to UNESCO, 60% of the world’s most important works of arts are located in Italy and half of these are in Florence! So you won’t be over­whelmed by this breathtaking collection— we’ve included a half-day walking tour to acquaint you with the city’s most famous areas. We’ll enjoy a day at leisure when you might want to see the delightful antique flea markets at Piazza dei Ciompi, the jewelry shops along Ponte Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, and the espresso cafés along the Piazza della Repubblica.
