Rick Steves is your perfect travel partner, guiding you through his favorite European cities, villages, and off-the-beaten-path getaways.
Florence: Heart of the Renaissance
Fifteenth-century Florence was the home of the Renaissance and the birthplace of our modern world. We’ll gaze into the self-assured eyes of Michelangelo’s David, enjoy Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, delve into the 3-D wonders of Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise, appreciate Fra Angelico’s serene beauty, and climb the dome that kicked off the Renaissance. Then we’ll cross the Arno to where Florentine artisans live, work, and eat…very well.
Florentine Delights and Tuscan Side-Trips
We’ll enjoy more of the exquisite artistic treasures of the city that propelled Europe out of the Middle Ages. Then we’ll side-trip to a couple of rival cities and cultural capitals in their own right, Pisa and Lucca, where we’ll marvel at a tipsy tower, circle a city on its ramparts, and enjoy some Puccini in his hometown.
