The wonders of Tuscany at your disposal: Florence and its Renaissance beauties, Siena and its Palio districts, Brunello di Montalcino and the towers of San Gimignano, Pisa and its leaning tower and the medieval oval square of Lucca. A concentration of emotions in one of Italy’s most beautiful regions
Tuscany is a magical landscape where everything is gentle around, everything is ancient and new.
The soul of the Italian Renaissance. If they were not born here, they certainly lived here: all the greatest Renaissance artists are linked to Florence. Leonardo da Vinci, Filippo Brunelleschi, Michelangelo, Giotto, Cimabue and the list would be endless. The only way to understand the greatness of Florentine history is to immerse yourself in the discovery of the city and its splendid monuments. Immediately you will be enraptured by the atmosphere and will never want to return home.
One of the most unique cities in Tuscany, is famous for the Palio, which twice a year (2 July and 16 August) sets the hearts of the Sienese and the 17 contrade that make it up on fire. The Palio is run in Piazza del Campo, the distinctive shell-shaped square.
San Gimignano is one of the best preserved examples of medieval architecture in all of Europe. A Unesco World Heritage Site, this small town along the Via Francigena is most famous for the medieval towers that tower above its panorama. Of the 72 towers that existed in the town’s heyday, twenty-five remained in 1580 and today there are only fourteen. The oldest is the Rognosa tower, erected in the 13th century.
A concentration of art and beauty that makes the visitor’s eyes glaze over. The Cathedral (11th century), its imposing bronze doors and the impressive apsidal mosaic from 1302. Next to it is the beautiful 12th-century Baptistery and the incredible acoustics of its interior. And then the queen of bell towers, the world-famous Leaning Tower, one of the symbols of world-famous Italy.
