Tonight, you are in the Venice area. (B)
Day 8 - Venice Area. Venice is more like a marvelous film set than a real-life city, with its criss-crossing canals, gondolas and water buses, arched bridges, palaces, and busy little piazzas. The included orientation starts with a BOAT RIDE to St. Mark's Square and is followed by some time to soak up the city's unique atmosphere and a chance to watch Venetian GLASSBLOWERS fashion their delicate objects as they did centuries ago. Don't miss out on the optional gondola trip, gliding along the picturesque canals with a local troubadour to serenade you. (B,D)
Day 9 - Venice Area - Assisi - Rome. An interesting drive southward, cutting across the Po Plains, then crossing the rolling Apennines. Stop in Assisi, where St. Francis was born in 1182. Visit the world-famous BASILICA with its beautiful frescoes by Giotto, then head for Rome. (B)

An optional tour takes you around the island with its steep roads and panoramic views. (B,D)
Day 13 - Neapolitan Riviera - Florence. An early start this morning for the journey north to Florence. Vistas of undulating hills, austere rows of cypress trees, terraced vineyards, olive groves, and rural villages form the backdrop of your journey through beautiful Tuscany.

Day 15 - French Riviera - Route Napoleon - Grenoble. A great itinerary today!
