Milne's slides of his tour of Italy visiting Rome, Sienna and Florence. Comments by Milne on the history and architecture of the places he was visiting are included in the description of the images. Milne's journal of this trip was written in 1980. He did not start keeping travel journals until 1973 but in 1980 he went back and wrote descriptions of his first three trips based on his slides. Many of the slides taken during this trip have been merged into his later tours of the same places. Milne spends the first five days in Rome visiting the major Classical sites - the Capitol, the Forum, Palatine Hill and the Etruscan Museum. He also visits numberous Christian sites, The Pantheon, St John in Lateran, the Vatican and St Peters Mine then spend three days in Sienna visiting the Palazzo Publico, the Cathedral and Baptistry, and the Palazzos Buonsignori and Salimbeni. Finally Milne goes to Florence (his favourite city) and visits most of the major churches, galleries, museums and palazzos.
