This morning we will depart for Rome, the Eternal City. Along the way, we will stop in the hilltop towns of Orvieto & Todi. Orvieto has one of the loveliest cathedrals in Italy with a facade encrusted with brilliantly colored mosaics. Sit at a café table and watch the ever-changing tableau of this evocative square, or stop for a gelato at one of the finest ice cream shops in Italy. We will continue to Todi, which boasts one of the few central plan churches, a symmetry that Leonardo and Bramante considered the ideal of architecture.

Our first class hotel in the heart of Rome is near many famous sites and will be our home for the next 3 nights, We invite you to enjoy dinner at a nearby local restaurant.
