Explore the town! The city itself is a statement of great Italian artistry; it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, founded on an ancient Etruscan settlement, and expanded several times by grand master builders such as Filippo Brunelleschi and Leon Battista Alberti. Don’t miss the “Officers Gallery”and the “Galleria dell’Accademia” (where you’ll find Michelangelo and da Vinci master pieces), “Palazzo Pitti” and its huge “Boboli” Garden, “Ponte Vecchio”, the “Duomo”, and all the countless other palaces, churches, and museums – you’ll be lost in a sea of unforgettable impressions and experience.

Today take a trip into the “Chianti fiorentino” area, the region of fabulous dark red wine. Perhaps you would like to include a visit to a winery and a wine tasting with appetizers in the “Castello di Vicchiomaggio” or a similar vineyard in your plans?

Day 4: Pisa, Volterra, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Siena (overnight in Siena)

Then journey to the amazingly beautiful Volterra, known for its alabaster and views of the Tuscan landscape. Not far from there you’ll find another Etruscan pearl and UNESCO World Heritage Site– San Gimignano, the “Manhatten of Tuscany” (due to the numerous towers built in the conflict between the “Ghibellini” and the “Guelfi” families). Enjoy this open air museum before you continue your route towards Monteriggioni and finally Siena.

Day 10: Florence, flight home
Sorry, but you’ll have to pack your bags today. Maybe you’ll have a time for a last little taste of the City of Art, but at some point you’ll have to make your way to Florence Airport, Peretola, from where you’ll start your journey home, all the while reflecting on the many things you saw and did (and didn’t do but should have). But don’t worry! You’ll be back.
