The historic city of Verona was founded in the 1st century B.C. It particularly flourished under the rule of the Scaliger family in the 13th and 14th centuries and as part of the Republic of Venice from the 15th to 18th centuries. Verona has preserved a remarkable number of monuments from antiquity, the medieval and Renaissance periods, and represents an outstanding example of a military stronghold.

Trains are often associated with scenic, romantic journeys, and when going across the Italian countryside by rail, this couldn't be more true. As with any foreign country, though, navigating the local metro can be a bit confusing or intimidating, especially for first-timers.

Urbino is one of the lovely Italian "hill" towns, in Marche. It is the home of the Palazzo Ducale Urbino, the dukes palace. The whole experience of visiting Urbino comes with an uplifting story - - a famous duke was both enlightened and forward-thinking, and tried to create a utopian, Renaissance world within his realm. He was the major sponsor of the young artist Raphael, and sponsored the construction of a remarkable Renaissance palace. Urbino is also a university town, filled with energy and worth a visit. On our trip we made stops at: The Palazzo Ducale, built over the Palace of the Jole, mid 15th century, largely by Luciano Laurana, (influenced by Brunelleschi), for Duke Federigo da Montefeltro, (a forward thinking humanist). It also contains the Galleria Nazionale dell Marche which includes major Renaissance works. Don't miss the other remarkable sights: Piazza dell Republica the Cathedral Piazza Duca Federico Porta Lavagine
