Florence

Cradle of the Renaissance, state capital of Tuscany and birthplace of the flourishing Renaissance art, which gave birth to one of the most fascinating and rich in art, history and culture places in the world, the historic center of Florence was the first of the Tuscan sites to be included in the UNESCO list. It is a kind of open-air museum, a continuous gallery of works of art in perfect harmony with the landscape and urban architecture that characterizes the social structure: the cultural identity of this city of infinite wonders lies in its artistic soul, which over the centuries has forged the city that we all know today. The majesty of the city is given by the magnificence of works such as the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Church of Santa Croce, the Uffizi Palace, works by artists such as Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and Michelangelo.

Siena

Siena, with its monuments in Medieval and Gothic style, is the greatest proof of the high expressive methods reached by its artists. Starting from the famous Piazza del Campo with its shell shape, on which stands the Torre del Mangia and Palazzo Pubblico, where you can admire masterpieces such as the Majesty of Simone Martini and the Effects of Good and Bad Government by Ambrogio Lorenzetti. And also the Duomo, with works of art by Michelangelo, Nicola Pisano, Donatello, and the Santa Maria della Scala, the oldest hospital in the world born on the ancient Via Francigena.

Pisa

Pisa and the famous Piazza del Duomo represent the perfection in the architecture of the Romanesque style, a combination of classical, early Christian, Lombard and eastern motifs. The monuments standing here, such as the Duomo, the Bell Tower, the Baptistery and the Camposanto leave the spectators breathless. Despite the unusual slope of the Tower (due to a subsidence of the ground found already at the time of its construction, begun in 1277) is the one attracting and intriguing millions of visitors, this wonderfully white square always cretes such astonishment and admiration that it deserves the name of Piazza dei Miracoli, coined by Gabriele d'Annunzio.

Lucca

The city of Lucca, famous for its historical monuments, is one of the few state capitals to preserve the historic center, rich in ancient structures of various eras, completely surrounded by a sixteenth-century wall almost unchanged over the centuries. It is a remarkable city of art of Italy.
