'Thou art the garden of the world, the home Of all Art yields, and Nature can decree; E'en in thy desert, what is like to thee? Thy very weeds are beautiful, thy waste More rich than other climes, fertility, Thy wreck a glory, and thy ruin graced With an immaculate charm which cannot be defaced.'

Byron.


I. Travelling Expenses. Money.

Expenses . The cost of a tour in Italy need not exceed that incurred in other frequented parts of the Continent. The average expenditure of a single traveller may be estimated at 20-25 francs per day, or at 15-20 francs when a prolonged stay is made at one place; but persons acquainted with the language and habits of the country may easily restrict their expenses to still narower limits. Those who travel as members of a party also effect a considerable saving. When ladies are of the party the expenses are generally greater.

Money . The French monetary system is now in use throughout .the whole of Italy. The franc (lira or franco) contains 100 centesimi; 1 fr. 25 c. = 1s. (comp. the money-table at p. ii). In copper (bronzo or rame) there are coins of 1, 2, 5, and 10 centesimi, in nickel pieces
