Three days, seven cities

Day 4, Monday, March 30, 2009
We will be departing Rome early today as we make our way to Montecatini. On the way we will visit Assisi (St. Francis Basilica) and Siena, then continue to Montecatini (40km from Florence, spa town with many hotels). We will stay overnight in Montecatini.

Day 5, Tuesday, March 31, 2009
Today we will go on an all-day excursion to Florence including a visit to the Uffizi Museum (I am dying to see Botticelli's Birth of Venus) and Sta. Croce Church (Michelangelo's and Galileo's tombs). We will stay overnight in Montacatini.

Day 6, Wednesday, April 1, 2009
This morning we will depart from Montecatini and continue to Venice. We will stop for a morning visit of Pisa with its leaning tower and wonderful cathedral. We will also make an afternoon stop in Padua to see the famous church of St. Anthony. We stay overnight in Jesolo.

I love that shot of "Venus". I recently bought an art book and that painting is in it. Hope all is going smoothly and you are having a good time!
