Jul 16,  · The map has a map of Italy on one side and maps of several cities (Rome, Venice, Florence) on the other. The Italy map is only good to see where the different cities are in relation to each other. Very few roads are shown.

Her descriptive language and thoughtful, poignant commentary paint unforgettable pictures of Rome, Florence, Venice, and the lands of her ancestors, Molise and Abruzzo.

I say 3 for Venice and 2 for Florence only because getting to Venice and from there to Switzerland will use up more time (probably 1 day will be spent in travel to and from so you would still just have 2 days there).
