Florence is the gem of Italy’s central region and as the capitol of the Renaissance, the city is absolutely bursting with beautiful art and delightfully shocking history. Wend your way from the Ponte Vecchio bridge to the Piazza Signoria to Brunelleschi’s dome and the Baptistery and discover why Florence is known as an open-air museum. Don’t miss the Academia and Michelangelo’s impressive David or the stunning collection of art in the Uffizi Gallery. We can even help arrange visits to the secret Vasari corridor normally closed to the public – just ask us.
Perhaps you’re staying in the city or in a villa down a cyprus-lined drive? Wherever you stay, take a drive into the idyllic rolling hills of Tuscany and discover the gothic dream city of Siena and see where the famous horse races are held, visit the medieval villages of Pienza, Montalcino, and Montepulciano for their world famous wines. Stop by the leaning tower of Pisa or hike the trail between the gorgeous villages of the Cinque Terre. Take Florence as your center and any direction you go, there’s always more to delight and discover.
