Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
Get a sense of the local culture at Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Florence Academy of Fine Arts. Explore hidden gems such as Pitti Palace and Museo Ducati. Change things up with these side-trips from Florence: Pisa (Camposanto, Duomo di Pisa, &more), Montefioralle Winery (in Greve in Chianti) and Castello di Monteriggioni (in Monteriggioni). There's still lots to do: get a sense of history and politics at Museo Nazionale del Bargello, steep yourself in history at Loggia dei Lanzi, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Baptistery of St. John, and get to know the fascinating history of Piazza del Duomo.
