Because you will discover two of Italy’s most charming, historical cities. You will visit the cradle of the Renaissance on a one-day tour of Florence and Pisa and breathe art and culture on their medieval streets. You will travel through the beautiful Tuscany hills until you reach Florence, where you will enjoy an impressive view over the city from the lookout point at Piazzale Michelangelo. You will visit craft workshops and renaissance palaces and see objects that belonged to the Medici family and works by renowned artists such as MichelAngelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli.

You will visit the Museum of the Academia to see MichelAngelo’s David and then the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral with its beautiful dome by Brunelleschi. Also the Baptistery and Giotto’s bell tower. After that, you will visit Piazza Della Signoria square and have time to eat and explore a little on your own. After stopping for a bite to eat, do a little tour of the square. After lunch and a break, you will visit the Piazza Santa Croce, where great artists like Michelangelo are buried.

Then it will be back to the bus to head for Pisa via the lovely Tuscany countryside along the Arno valley. You will tour the spectacular Piazza dei Miracoli on foot to see the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, the baptistery and the Duomo.
