The Art Cities: Daydreaming...

 

 

The Italian art cities are some of the most-visited destinations in international cultural tourism.  Of course, many are Italy’s art cities: Rome, Florence, Venice, Naples, Bologna, Parma, Ferrara, Turin, Milan, Mantua, Padua, Verona, Vicenza, Perugia, Siena, Palermo just to name a few, but when touring Italy, you will soon discover the hundreds of Medieval villages that adorne this magic land!

 

Almost all of them preserve an important historic, artistic and architectonic heritage that narrates the succession of century after century: walking along the narrow street, you will soon find yourselves lost in the history because they are rich in signs of the events of the men who moved about in them. In fact, Italy’s art cities were often the seats of governments and principalities, and the stages for the events that changed the course of history. 

 

More specifically these cities, due to their particular relationship with various axes of power, were made over several times – i.e. as residences of princes, dukes, popes, kings and emperors. 

 

Frequently characterized as an urban textile that preserves the original framework, such as a Roman stronghold or a Medieval borgo, Italy's art cities represent vestiges that each seem to be frozen in different times – some even seem to straddle the divide between more than one historical period, perhaps not having completed the transformation initiated by one conqueror or another. 

 

Marked by the initiatives of great artists and patrons, these cities are not only the repositories of poignant artistic expressions, but are themselves true masterpieces of art. They are open-air museums that can be enjoyed and admired on foot.

 

Considering such a heavy bargain of culture, history, arts, when we prepare a golf tour touching these places, we take in account that golf plays only a little part of the day because the remaining part is taken by your curiosity to visit, to understand what these magic places have to offer.

 

We have prepared great golf proposals based in these cities; you could spend all the stay in one location or make various combinations. Here are our some of our suggestions:

Florence 6 nights

Siena 3 nights + Florence 4 nights

Rome 3 nights + Florence 4 nights

Rome 3 nights - Florence 3 nights + Venice 2 nights

Rome 3 nights + Perugia 2 nights + Florence 3 nights

Verona 6 nights

Verona 4 nights + Venice 3 nights

Rome 3 nights + Florence 3 nights + Milan 1 night

Turin 4 nights + Milan 3 nights

Bologna 3 nights + Parma 2 nights + Verona 2 nights

 

The proposals based on these art cities, apart playing golf and visiting the towns and their museums, include various local features typical of that area: food, wines, cooking classes, food tours, craftsmanship, motors, botanical gardens, etc.

Everchanging, untouched landscapes in the green of winding valleys make Umbria a region that will never fail to amaze. This region comprises mainly hills, mountains, hollows and plains and extends along the Tiber’s central basin. 
At the heart of the boot, it is the only region with no coastline. 

It includes Lake Trasimeno, central Italy’s largest lake. The area still has the remains of Etruscan settlements, particularly around Castiglione del Lago, where the loveliness of the natural landscape combines with the romanticism and stillness of the lake. 
Moving on from the two lakes, we come to the Cascate delle Marmore waterfalls near Terni, some of the most beautiful in Europe. 
The waters dive into the River Nera with a spectacular 165 m (541 ft) drop, and are surrounded by lush vegetation. This is the spot for sports lovers who enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and not only. 

Still in the province of Terni, tourists looking to get the feel of Umbria should not miss out on two little gems: one of them is linked to history and the other to the territory. Carsulae is an ancient Roman town traversed by the ancient Via Flaminia, where important public buildings have been discovered. We can still see the remains of the S. Damiano Arch, with particularly beautiful and fascinating surroundings. 
The other gem, closely linked to the area’s makeup is the Dunarobba Fossil Forest, a rare example of a forest that existed 3 million years ago, with very well-preserved tree trunks set in a lunar landscape. 

The provinces of the region are Perugia (regional capital) and Terni
