ENJOY “CLASSIC ITALY” as we pair exquisite Florence – Italy’s Renaissance capital - with Tuscany’s medieval villages. Florence is a stunning medieval city considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful with its palaces, churches and museums. So you won’t be overwhelmed by this breathtaking collection—we’ve included a half-day walking tour to acquaint you with the city’s most famous areas and a “skip-the-line” visit to the Uffizi Gallery. (Be sure to hit the third level where you’ll get marvelous views of the Ponte Vecchio!) You’ll have a free day to visit the delightful antique flea markets at Piazza dei Ciompi, the jewelry shops along Ponte Vecchio, the Boboli Gardens, and the espresso cafés along the Piazza della Repubblica. Leaving Florence we take the “road less traveled” and visit charming Cortona – an ancient Etruscan village; and Arezzo for a walking tour and time to browse the famous Antiques Fair. We’ll stay three nights in Anghiari, rated one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Outside its 12th and 13th-century fortified walls, the countryside around Anghiari seems untouched—dotted with monasteries and archaeological sites. Inside, we’ll be charmed by small squares, artisan shops, towers and churches.
