Florence

 

 

Where better to discover the Renaissance than here in its spiritual home?

 

Our groups in Florence typically visit the Accademia, for Michelangelo's David, the Bargello, with works by many of the masters of the period, and of course the Uffizi, Europe's oldest museum, with its da Vincis, Botticellis and Lippis.

 

A walk through some of the churches of the city passes many frescoes, crossing the Ponte Vecchio to the cathedral with its magnificent Brunelleschi dome.

 

Our groups visiting Florence usually fly via Pisa, where the famous Leaning Tower is well worth a visit.

 

(If you can possibly find the time, the tour may be extended to such cities as Milan, Padua, Mantua and Venice)
