1. Between Rome and Florence

via Tuscany with Stops in Orvieto and San Gimignano

Many believe that the Duomo in Orvieto is the most beautiful church in the world. You add your opinion when your Lecture-Guide-Driver makes the first stop here. This picturesque citadel city boasts great wine and the famous Majolica Pottery as well.

A short drive then places you at a country estate table near the town of Sinalunga for a sumptuous and authentic lunch.

From here you motor to the tiny hill town of San Gimignano. You view the famous medieval towers, wander the charming streets and shop for Tuscan treasures.

You arrive in Florence with a head (and stomach) full of Tuscan memories courtesy of your Lecture-Tour-Driver. You spend a relaxing evening reviewing the events of the day and plotting your inevitable Tuscan return.

Driving Time: Rome - Orvieto, 1 and 1/2 Hour, Lunch Stop at L'Amorosa near Sinalunga 1 Hour, San Gimignano, 1 Hour, Florence, 1 Hour.

2. Between Rome and Florence

via Umbria with a stop in Assisi

The immaculate medieval hill town of Assisi has always been a vortex of beauty and spirituality. Home to Italy's patron saint, St. Francis, this town maintains frescoes of Giotto and Cimabue. You meander through the Basilica, quaint chapels, along narrow streets filled with artisan shops and inside fine art galleries. Then you drive among olive groves dotted by fields of sunflowers.

An authentic Umbrian Lunch with an unparalleled vista is the essential mid-day break during your visit to this captivating town.

Your Lecture-Guide-Driver spends the day painting an Umbrian picture, with Assisi the focus. You are delivered to Florence filled with the spirit of St. Francis.

Driving Time: Rome - Assisi, 2 and 1/2 Hours. Assisi - Florence, 2 and 1/2 Hours.

Between Rome and Naples or Amalfi Coast via Pompeii

Nothing compares to the magic and mystery of Pompeii. You view the seemingly tranquil Mt. Vesuvius and then walk among the remarkably preserved remains of a city buried underneath 30 feet of ash during its violent eruption. A bakery, theatre, gymnasium and public bath all stand sentinels to a time and lifestyle literally sucked breathless in a split second then entombed for a thousand years.

A late lunch precedes your motor tour along Europe's most beautiful seascape. You are then delivered to your picturesque and peaceful Amalfi Home.

With the help of your Lecture-Guide-Driver, you fully understand how the working class Romans lived (and died) at the height of the Empire. You further understand why this drive is the "The Postcard" trip in Italy.

Driving Time: Rome - Pompeii, 3 Hours, Pompeei - Naples/ Positano 1 Hour.

Between Florence and Venice with Ferrari, Ham and Cheese on the Way

Your Lecture-Guide-Driver picks you up in Florence and drop you off in Venice. But, not before you experience wheels of speed and wheels of Parmesan.

Your first stop is Modena and the famous Galleria Ferrari. This museum honors the style, speed and elegance of these engineering marvels. Ferrari is synonymous with sleekness and seduction, wooing many during its reign as premier automotive manufacturer.

The next wheel you see weighs roughly 36 kilos, made of cheese. Free of preservatives and easy to digest, Parmesan Cheese (Parmiggiano Reggiano) is a dietary, culinary and gastronomic marvel.

And how can we have cheese without ham? Like its Parmesan partner, Prosciutto di Parma is indigenous to the region and produced with the same reverence (cured for at least 12 months) that made it a favorite of nobility centuries ago. Ham never had it so good.

The Lecture-Guide drives you through Region Emilia with ample time for food, fun and fantastic memories before you arrived, sated and content, in Venice.

Driving Time: Florence - Modena, 1 and 1/2 Hour, Lunch Stop near Modena 1 Hour, Modena-Venice 2 Hours

Between Venice and Milan via Verona and Lake Como

Your trip to Milan has a welcomed lunchtime break in the charming city of Verona. Home to Shakespeare's "Two Gentleman" and "Romeo and Juliet", Verona clearly illustrates why it has been a constant source of inspiration for artists throughout the centuries.

Walk the mythical path of the two star-crossed lovers and visit Juliet's house (actually a restored inn-now museum, but the marble balcony is irresistible). You see the spectacular Duomo and "the other Coliseum" an incredibly intact arena from Imperial Rome.

Before you arrive in Milan, your Lecture-Guide Driver takes you a few miles North to the spectacular Lake Como. This is a postcard setting. Beautiful villas, tiny towns, lush foliage and a crystal clear lake nestled at the foot of the Alps makes Como a feast for the senses.

Upon arrival in Milan it is clear that you've had an informative, productive and visually stunning motor transfer.
