Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, with its museums, palaces, and churches, stands as one of the most import artistic treasures in existence. For centuries it has been the destination of intellectuals, artists, travelers and adventurers who arrived in Tuscany seeking to take in all the art and history of the Florentines who changed the world.
We will guide you through the discovery of this unique city, exploring such sacred treasures as the Piazza San Giovanni with its ancient Baptistery, Duomo, and Giotto’s bell tower. We’ll continue to the Piazza della Signoria, ancient center of the city’s political life, with the Palazzo Vecchio, the Loggia de’Lanzi and the Uffizi Palace, home of the Gallery of the Uffizi, one of the most important museums in the world. The edifice houses artworks of incalculable worth, most of which derive from the private collection of the Medici family.
