days
Chicago

A huge and vibrant city, Chicago is home to top-notch theaters, shops, museums, galleries, and restaurants.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Starved Rock State Park and University of Notre Dame. Change things up with these side-trips from Chicago: Centennial Beach (in Naperville), Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial (in Marseilles) and Saint Joseph (Silver Beach County Park, Whirlpool Compass Fountain, & more). The adventure continues: trek along Geneva Lake Shore Path, squeeze the most out of the city with City Tours, have fun and explore at Discovery Center Museum, and take in nature's colorful creations at Anderson Japanese Gardens.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Chicago Midway International Airport, Chicago O'Hare International Airport and South Bend Regional Airport. In August, daytime highs in Chicago are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
