Florence, Italy

— 4 nights

Birthplace of the Italian Renaissance

Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
Appreciate the collections at Pitti Palace and Galleria Gagliardi. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Clet's Studio and Eleonora Firenze Shoes. Get out of town with these interesting Florence side-trips: San Gimignano (Guardastelle Vineyard & Torre Grossa), Crete Senesi (in Asciano) and Borgo di Lucignano d’Arbia (in Lucignano d'Arbia). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, explore the world behind art at Florence Academy of Fine Arts, make a trip to Palazzo Vecchio, and admire the landmark architecture of The Baptistery of St. John.
