Italy’s cradle of Renaissance is also Tuscany’s treasure chest of the world’s most priceless and famous works of art. The historical, artistic, cultural and scientific impact of Florence on the world around it is overwhelming, and its heritage unparalleled.

A short drive into the historic center will take you to the Basilica of Santa Croce, famous for the impressive funerary monuments of some of Florence’s most illustrious historical figures: Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei, Lorenzo Ghiberti and Niccolo Machiavelli.

Stunningly beautiful works of art that decorate the basilica were created by great masters such as Giotto, Cimabue, Donatello, and Giorgio Vasari among many others.

Piazza del Duomo is where you will have the opportunity to admire Florence’s impressive the trio that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site: Cathedral (Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower), Giotto’s Bell Tower, and the Baptistry - whose exteriors are decorated with polychrome horizontal strips of stunning green, white and pink marble.

The cathedral (also known as the Duomo) is one of Italy’s largest churches, and before modern age, its immense dome was the largest in the world...as you see it today it’s still the largest brick dome to have ever been constructed.
