En route to your next destination, Florence, you will visit the town of Orvieto, which stands proudly and precariously on top of a cliff of red volcanic rock. In Orvieto, admire the wonderful winding streets and past the magnificent Gothic cathedral, with its black and white striped walls and colourful mosaics. The city has a fascinating warren of caves and underground passageways, which you explore on a tour before free time for lunch in one of the many restaurants of the historic centre.
Upon arrival in Florence, enjoy a tour to Piazzale Michelangelo for a breathtaking view of the city from a dominating position on the hills above as well as the Cradle of Renaissance to see the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo (the fourth largest cathedral in the world) and Piazza della Signoria. There, you will also see the Basilica Santa Croce, burial place of some of Italy’s most celebrated icons including Galileo Galilei, Macchiavelli and Michelangelo, and as many as 1,700 masterpieces in the world-‐famous Uffizi Gallery. In fact, much of the beauty of the city is found indoors, with a fifth of the world’s Renaissance art on display in Florence’s museums, galleries, churches, monasteries and palaces. During your free time in Florence, you may choose to explore a number of these art displays.
The tour continues as you travel to Pisa to see the famous Leaning Tower and then Lucca, one of the most perfectly preserved medieval towns in Italy to enjoy a guided tour through its narrow lanes and historic palaces.
To top of the tour, you will visit magical Venice. There, you will enjoy a private boat to Piazza San Marco for a guided tour of the square, which is dominated by the magnificent Basilica Di San Marco and the venerable Palazzo Ducale, or Doge’s Palace, an impressive and marvelous building of the Venetian rulers.
