Romans and Renaissance

We were set the task of designing an itinerary to include the best of Italian art in a 12 day tour without to much rushing around.We did our best, combining time in Venice, Florence and Rome with a visit to Leonardo's "Last Supper" in Milan, Giotto's frescoes in Assisi, the mosaics in Ravenna and Pompeii.
