Why Italy?

The capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, Florence is a small, romantic city full of classic Renaissance art and architecture. Art and history lovers flock to the city each year to visit Michelangelo’s “David” sculpture at the Galleria dell’Accademia and Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” at the Uffizi Gallery. Strolling through the winding Florentine streets, you’ll soon realize that art isn’t the only unique element of the city: its traditional jewelry shops, affordable street eats, and welcoming neighborhoods make this “cradle of the Renaissance” a perfect home-away-from-home. On the weekends you can take your spirit for adventure and travel to a number of must-see sights throughout Italy, like Rome’s Colosseum or Pisa’s leaning tower.
