US$ 759

Explore the history and culture of Florence during this unique stay in the city. Enjoy a guided bike tour into the Tuscan countryside to discover villas, castles, and vineyards. Another day, explore the medieval city squares, learn about the Renaissance, and see masterpieces like Michelangelo’s “David” and Brunelleschi’s Duomo.


This 4-day Italy vacation takes you to Florence, where you’ll savour the sights and flavours of Tuscany.

Your trip to Italy focus on Florence, the Tuscan capital and the birthplace of the Renaissance. Wander around the medieval piazzas and admire the gorgeous architecture. Dine on some incredible Tuscan dishes, which boast fresh ingredients, bright colours, and wonderful flavours. During your time in Florence, you’ll roam the Tuscan countryside on two wheels during an escorted bike ride through olive groves and vineyards. Pass by castles and heritage estates and feast on a Tuscan lunch at a local Chianti winery. On your second full day in Florence, embark on a city tour that takes you through the heart of the city to admire the architecture and learn about the history of the Medici family, which ruled Florence through the Renaissance and commissioned most of its artistic masterpieces. During your tour, you’ll visit the Academy Gallery to see Michelangelo’s “David,” perhaps the most celebrated statue in the world. End the tour by heading to the Square of the Duomo, where you’ll see Giotto’s Bell Tower and Florence Cathedral, home to Brunelleschi’s famous dome.

If it’s your first time in Florence, be sure to arrive early or book an extra day to explore the city proper. Though it’s relatively small, Florence contains so much of what is wonderful about Italy. No city in the world preserves the legacy of the Renaissance or captures the vibrancy of Tuscan cuisine like Florence.
