Discover the world’s most beautiful city
Florence owes its wealth to the people who have been settling here on the banks of the River Arno since ancient times. A city that has stood the test of time, growing and flourishing thanks to its artists, merchants, bankers and intellectuals who have lived there over the centuries. Leonardo da Vinci, Giotto, Botticelli, the Medici family, Michelangelo, and Brunelleschi to name but a few.
The Renaissance left Florence with an artistic heritage that is still intact. Tourists who love art and architecture cannot neglect to visit Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, the Duomo, Piazzale Michelangelo, and the Accademia Gallery with the statue of David. An open-air museum, with monuments that are part of our world heritage, helping to make Florence once of the most beautiful (and visited) cities in the world.
Every year, Florence continues to be an attractive destination for lovers of food and wine, and today, there are many bars, restaurants and cafés, all ready to satisfy all tastes and wishes. Florence is also a city with a packed calendar of cultural events. Throughout the year, there are exhibitions, musical events and theatrical performances for days that are all about fun and entertainment.
Daily links (holidays included) are available from the centre of Florence and the city’s main hotels to The Mall outlet centre and back.

Siena is the capital of Tuscany’s historic traditions.

The history of Pisa is concentrated in a relatively short journey, starting from the banks of the River Arno and ending in Piazza del Duomo, more commonly known as Piazza dei Miracoli. The piazza is famous throughout the world for its originality and beauty, thanks also to the Tower of Pisa, the famous leaning bell tower that is a firm favourite when taking souvenir photos.
