Cruise to Florence

Florence, cradle of the Renaissance and capital of Tuscany, has the kind of scenery that can make artists and movie directors weep.

Seeing the afternoon light hit the intricate friezes of the Duomo and the Santa Maria Novella — or letting it wash over you as you stroll across the Ponte Vecchio — are just a few ways you can experience Florence's immeasurable beauty. But in a place where nature, art, architecture and history come together with amazing food, wine and beautiful people, there are plenty of opportunities to treat your senses in Florence.

Save room for a trip to Pisa, which offers more than just the Leaning Tower. The city's Miracle Square features the Romanesque Cathedral and the round Baptistery. You won't want to leave without a look at the world's most famous tower — from the outside, of course.
