Details: Your A La Carte Italy Tours itinerary may start in Milan. The Duomo (Cathedral) is adorned with no less than 135 extraordinarily intricate pinnacles and an impressive number of graceful, elegant white marble statues (2 245 in all). Your tour will then take you to Venice. The Doges Palace offers marvelous arcades that could be compared with latticework made of stone. In the courtyard, adorned with the Foscari portico, you will take the Staircase of Giants, which leads to the loggia. The largest of the islands on the lagoon, located approximately one Km from the city, Murano has been, from the 13th C., a famous glass making center. In the 15th C. it was the seat of the famous Vivarini painting school. It's somewhat like a miniature version of Venice: like her big sister, it is made up of little islands connected by bridges, it too has a sinuous Grand Canal bordered with quays running through it, and old homes lined up along them. Your private tour will then take you to Florence and Tuscany. In San Gimignano mediaeval village, there are old palaces (Palaces of the People, of the Podestat, of Chigi), seven towers and the sober collegiate church which give the Cathedral square a majestic appearance, almost solemn yet imbued with a Tuscan serenity. The tour will continue to Rome, the Vatican, Naples and beyond your dreams.
