Subject: R: Italy#s best spot
Hi Gretchen

I could suggest the central part of Italy if you looking for medieval and Renaissance towns; not only Toscana and Umbria but Marche as well. Have a look at http://www.regione.marche.it/turismo/default.asp, and don't miss Urbino at http://www.comune.urbino.ps.it/fcitta.htm.

Grazia from Urbino
