Visit Wondrous Sights and Historic Landmarks by Joining Central Italy Tours
Central Italy is characterized by rolling hills, fertile plains, and mountainous backdrops. It is composed of five out of the country’s 20 regions, namely, Marche, Tuscany, Abruzzo, Umbria, and Lazio. These regions all played formidable roles in the history of Italy and the rest of the world, making them some of the most sought after destinations for central Italy tours. They served as hubs for the Roman and Etruscan civilizations and within this general region is the Holy See of the Roman Catholic Church—making central Italy a must-see destination for devotees.
Each region within central Italy has its own distinct flavor and pull. Tuscany, for instance, is known to be the cradle of Italian Renaissance (Rinascimento). Within it are the colorful cities of Florence, Pisa, and Siena, which are surrounded not only by a lovely wine country, but also a great air of history and culture. Marche is right at the foot of the Apennine. This central region is characterized by some of the most beautiful rolling countryside, hilltop old towns, and stunning Adriatic beaches.
Central Italy tours are not complete without a visit to the mountain region of Umbria. This is where the famed walled cities of Assisi, Spoleto, Perugia, and Gubbio can be found. Explore the very heart of ancient Rome through a tour of the Lazio region and see all that the “Eternal City” is all about. Now Italy’s modern capital, Rome used to be the seat of ancient civilization’s power. Today, however, it remains to be the headquarters for the Catholic Church and no Central Italy visit is ever complete without a tour of important landmarks such as the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, Campidoglio, and other ancient city features.
When planning your Central Italy tours, consider spending time in the sparsely populated Abruzzo, which is a great place to get a taste of some of the most unspoiled areas of the country. To the east of Abruzzo lies the Adriatic, which opens up great opportunities for adventures in the sun and sand. Pescara, the largest city boasts some 6.5 miles of uninterrupted seaside dotted by some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in Central Italy.
