The capital of Tuscany and cradle of the Italian Renaissance, Florence is one of the most important and beautiful cities in Italy. Visit the town hall, the fortress-like Palazzo Vecchio with its soaring bell tower. Outside, in the Piazza della Signoria, take in the imposing figure of the god of the sea at the Fountain of Neptune, where he stands tall, surrounded by laughing satyrs and charging sea horses. The piazza also has a reproduction of Michaelangelo's David, or you can go see the real deal at the Accademia di Belle Arti. Or visit the wonderful Uffizi Gallery to see pieces like Botticelli's The Birth of Venus.
If Gothic architecture is your interest, visit the elaborate Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore in Piazza del Duomo, right in the heart of the city. Whether it's walking on the narrow streets and exploring the cafes and restaurants that offer some of Italy's finest food and wine, experiencing the history and art of the region at the numerous museums and monuments, or simply taking in the Renaissance architecture, Florence is a city full of classic splendor that you will remember for a lifetime.

I'd give this an excellent rating except that the driver was supposed to be at the pier when the ship docked, which was 7 AM, but he didn't show until almost 8 AM. Other than that, it was excellent. Guides English was perfect and he drove well and knew how to get to everything we wanted. He took us to a colorful Italian, non-touristy, restaurant for lunch, and was able to squeeze a stop in Pisa for us.
