Day 4 – Tuesday, May 5th: Toscana : Firenze

It has been called the art capital of the world. It’s a full day for us in the Renaissance jewel of Firenze. In no time we travel from our secluded villa and arrive at the periphery of the city at the Piazzale Michelangelo. A quick photo-op and we head straight for the downtown core where we walk across the Ponte Vecchia and begin our guided walking tour which includes the Piazza della Signonria, the Duomo and Baptistery and Santa Croce – the final resting place of: Michelangelo, Donatello, Galileo, Machiavelli, and Marconi. After lunch we take a guided tour of the world famous Galleria degli Uffizi, which houses unbelievable treasures of Renaissance art.  At the end of our very busy day we meet on the steps of the Duomo and head back to our villa where a number of possible dinner options await.
