Travelers adore Italy, and Italy adores the Renaissance. In this half-hour, we follow Western Europe's transition from medieval to modern times, by exploring the arts and ambiance of that vibrant period. In Florence, Milan, and Venice, we find works by Brunelleschi, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Titian. Side-tripping to France's lush Loire Valley, we visit Renaissance castles and abbeys, including the timeless haunts of Ambois, Chenanceiu, and a few less-traveled chateaux along the way. And we drop into the Northern Renaissance with a visit to Hampton Court and Henry VIII.
