It's the home of Chianti vineyards, fine cuisine, Roman villas, Renaissance castles and cypress-studded landscapes that look like film sets. Your hotel in Montecatini Terme is an ideal base for visiting Pisa, Lucca, and Florence, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Florence is a medieval masterpiece of piazzas, churches and palaces.
This is where the Renaissance began, the first bankers set up their benches (banca, bench) on the Ponte Vecchio, and the Medicis used their fabulous wealth to create enormous art collections now housed at the Palazzo Pitti (Leonardo, Rubens, Caravaggio...), the Uffizi (Botticelli's Birth of Venus) and the Galleria of the Accademia di Belle Arti (Michelangelo's David, and now Stradivarius violins).
On this holiday there is also an included full-day excursion to medieval Siena, one of Italy's most visited attractions, and San Gimignano whose towers punctuate the skyline from many miles around, and a half-day guided wine tasting tour. All this, and 4 star accommodation too, with dinner and breakfast, plus flights and all travel, only without the rock star prices. Fantastico!
