Florence and San Gimignano - Excursions from Port
Florence, cradle of the renaissance, is an enchanting city with its masterpieces of art, the colored marbles of the churches and the architecture and some of the most important artistic treasures in the world.
Among the most famous places of art and worship in the city there are the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the Uffizi Gallery where Botticelli’s Birth of Venus is preserved, the Santa Croce Basilica, Santa Maria Novella, Pitti Palace, Ponte Vecchio Bridge, the Academy of Fine Arts where you can admire the famous Michelangelo’s David Sculpture, the Boboli Gardens and much more.
The tour continues to the medieval village of San Gimignano with its enchanting landscapes, artistic and architectural beauties. San Gimignano is famous mostly for its 13 medieval watch Towers located in the middle of the village, but there are a lot of attractions to visit: the little church of “Collegiata” completely covered with Frescoes, the Cathedral square, the Torture Museum, the civic Museum and the Rocca of Montestaffoli, built to defend San Gimignano from Siena's attacks after submission to Florence.
