Birthplace of the Italian Renaissance

Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
Visit Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Campanile di Giotto for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Florence: Bologna (Museo Civico Archeologico, Basilica di San Petronio, &more), Pisa (Piazza dei Miracoli & Leaning Tower of Pisa) and Siena (Palazzo Pubblico and Museo Civico, Centro Storico di Siena, &more). And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Piazza del Duomo, take in nature's colorful creations at The Boboli Gardens, get a sense of history and politics at Palazzo Vecchio, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of Santa Croce.
