We left Sydney on 27 May and flew to Rome with an overnight stop in Hong Kong. From Rome we immediately flew to Palermo, where we stayed three nights. From there, we took an overnight ferry to Naples and then train to Sorrento, where we stayed for four nights.

Leaving Sorrento, we picked up a hire car and drove around Italy as shown on the map, staying at:

Matera: 1 night
Monte Sant'Angelo: 2 nights
Scanno: 2 nights
Norcia: 3 nights
Urbino: 2 nights
Venice: 4 nights
Vezzano Ligure (Cinque Terra): 4 nights

We finished by flying via London to Hong Kong, where we spent two nights before returning to Sydney.
