The Cradle of the Renaissance
One of the most majestic cities in the world, Florence is a real treat for your senses and a must for lovers of art, fine cuisine, and wine. The capital of Tuscany, Florence overflows with magnificent artistic and architectural treasures. The magnificent Duomo reigns proudly over this city of meandering cobblestone paths, leading to lovely piazzas, fountains, and statuary.
Piazza della Signoria (the political heart of the city from the Middle Ages to the present day), the Uffizi Gallery (containing one of the most important art collections of all time), and the Accademia (home to Michelangelo's David) are just a few of the city's fascinating sites.
Shop at the upscale boutiques and jewelers along the Ponte Vecchio, the only original bridge surviving war and the ages. Dine at a sidewalk café and watch the people - a favorite pastime of local Florentines. Take a day trip to the Tuscan countryside, the inspirational setting of picturesque hilltop villages featuring acre upon acre of vineyards, and some of the world's best wines.
The best Florence vacations begin with a City Tour, which will take you along the romantic Viale Dei Colli to the Piazzale Michelangelo, offering the famous panoramic view of Florence.
Florence is a shopper's delight, specializing in leather goods, jewelry, glassware, and handcrafted paper.
Be prepared to indulge - in Florence, it seems as though every meal is fabulous, each glass of wine tastes better, and every statue, painting, fountain and cathedral more breathtaking than the last. It is the aura of Florence.
