Central and Northern Italy: Route Overview

I continue the promised publication of motor routes in Europe. Today there will be north and center of Italy (arrival and departure and Venice).

April 30 (Monday) Padua. A small town, the famous Giotto chapel, with which most textbooks begin the story of the Renaissance in painting.

Bologna.

May 1 (Tuesday) Ravenna. One of the centers of the Byzantine Empire, from which stunning mosaics have been preserved.

May 2 (Wednesday). San Marino There are not only cheap fake bags, but also very picturesque medieval castles.

Urbino. One of the classic examples of Renaissance urban development.

May 3 (Thursday) Assisi. First of all, it is famous for the Basilica of St. Francis, with frescoes of the early Renaissance, but it is also interesting in itself as an incredibly picturesque medieval city.

Spoleto. A small provincial town where you can see the ancient Roman ruins, the Lombard church, the Romanesque basilica and the 14th century bridge.

May 4 (Friday) Tempietto del Clitunno. The ancient Roman sanctuary (the language does not turn into a temple, because it is very small), adapted for Christian worship.

Pienza. Another example of renaissance urbanism. You can see how they imagined the “ideal Renaissance city” in the XV century.

Siena Interiors of the Palazzo Pubblico, Siena.

May 5 (Saturday) San Gimignano. A very picturesque medieval city that has preserved many towers.

Pisa
May 6 (Sunday) Florence

May 7 (Monday) Modena. In addition to the factories of Ferrari and Maseratti, there is also a very beautiful Romanesque cathedral.

Parma
Piacenza. A wonderful medieval town with an amazing atmosphere.

May 8 (Tuesday) Certosa di Pavia. The most beautiful monastery complex, considered one of the highest achievements of the Lombard revival.

Brescia. A small town with Roman ruins, a Romanesque church, a medieval cathedral and a Renaissance square. The city historical museum is very interesting.

Bergamo A very picturesque Renaissance town, which at one time led to the incredible admiration of Stendhal. The main attraction is the Romanesque basilica with baroque interiors.

May 9 (Wednesday) Verona

May 10 (Thursday) Vicenza. He bears the proud name of the “city of Palladio” (a famous Renaissance architect), because several villas of his work are located in it at once. Included in the list of UNESCO. Honestly, I didn’t make much impression.
