Birthplace of the Italian Renaissance

Considered a cultural, artistic, and architectural jewel of Italy, Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.
Visit Cappella Brancacci and Loggia dei Lanzi for their historical value. Museum-lovers will appreciate Museo di Palazzo Davanzati and Complesso Museale Santa Maria della Scala. Explore Florence's surroundings by going to Marina di Pietrasanta (Bagno Carlo, Bagno Piemonte, &more), San Gimignano (San Gimignano 1300 & Torre e Casa Campatelli) and Siena (Casa di Santa Caterina, Palazzo Pubblico and Museo Civico, &more). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Piazza Pio II, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tempio di San Biagio, stroll through Bagno Irene, and get engrossed in the history at Sinagoga di Firenze e Museo ebraico.
