I titled my visits to the Italian cities “Run! Run!” because I was really in a hurry – I had only a week in Italy and I wanted to cover as much of the country as possible. My 7-hour mission to see all the essentials of Venice and it was amazing!
Florence… it was a place of my dream. The old town was still compact and packed with countless fine arts – cathedral, churches, mansions, palaces… it takes days, or even months, for a visitor to look at them all in an area within walking distance.
Madrid has a strong artistic atmosphere, especially in the Retiro district – three major art museums formed a Golden Triangle of Art which has one of the most prestigious classical art collection in the world.
Althought Versailles has been the center of attention in terms of the palaces in France – Fontainebleau is certainly not to miss!
A 24-hour, or 2-day-1-night, itinerary covering the absolute essentials of Rome, the Vatican Museum included.
