Walking through the streets of Florence, be sure to walk along the famous Ponte Vekyu, enjoy the paintings of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, enjoy the city with a bird's eye view from the bell tower of Giotto and sit at the Republic Square.
Romantic Venice is a city of water and bridges, carnivals and theater dell'arte. Slow gondola rides on the canals, admiring the architecture and the blossoming of the city streets, gentle humor and a light breeze - fabulous Venetian vacation beckons with its tranquility.
