Florence – Beginning the Extraordinary
Welcome to Italy, one of the most coveted vacation destinations in the world, filled with remarkable landscapes and the tremendous city of Florence, known to be the cradle of the Renaissance. Today you will arrive in the charming village of Pietrasanta located in the Tuscan Hills, and often referred to as the “City of Artists.” The medieval town has a quiet atmosphere and a delightful square that opens up directly into the hills. The city is often decorated not just with the historic beauty of the buildings but also modern sculptures, turning the streets into an open art exhibit. The municipality was used as the source of marble for Michelangelo’s works and continues to produce the stone for local and distant sculptors helping keep the city’s traditions alive. In the evening you will enjoy the comforts of a nearby village with a tasting of the local delicacies, from wine to crostini.
