Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
For shopping fun, head to Davide Cerasi Leather Boutique or Eredi Chiarini. Get some historical perspective at Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Basilica San Miniato al Monte. Change things up with these side-trips from Florence: Terme Sensoriali (in Chianciano Terme), Lido Di Camaiore (Bagno Brunella e Ada Beach & La Vela BeachClub) and Abbazia di Sant'Antimo (in Castelnuovo dell'Abate). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Abbazia di San Galgano, don't miss a visit to Piazza Anfiteatro, admire the masterpieces at Florence Academy of Fine Arts, and steep yourself in history at Le mura di Lucca.

To find photos, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Florence trip builder website.

Remote, uneventful, but definitely not a waste of time, Arles is absolutely steeped in Provençal culture.
Do your shopping at Camili Books & Tea and Le Marche d'Arles. Visit Amphitheatre (les Arenes) and Chateau de Tarascon for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Arles: Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer Beach (in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer), Marseille (Microcosmos Chai Urbain, Compagnie de Provence (La), &more) and Aix-en-Provence (Fromagerie Savelli, Thermes Sextius, &more). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Theatre Antique, relax and rejuvenate at Sadhana Spa, pause for some serene contemplation at Eglise St-Vincent, and look for gifts at Le Château du Bois - Avignon.
