Florence is the seat of an important university and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is considered the cradle of the Renaissance and is well known as one of the birthplaces of art and architecture.
Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its most famous landmarks are the Duomo (the Cathedral), the Franciscan Church of Santa Croce (the Holy Cross Church), the Ponte Vecchio (the Old Bridge), the Piazza della Signoria (Town Hall Square) and Pitti Palace.
The old town center includes such an amazing collection of masterpieces, that it is difficult to separate the city from its own works of art.
The art, the history, the science as well as the beauty of the natural environment, in such a limited and clearly defined space, make Florence unique and precious, not only to to the eyes of a curious visitor, but also to a scholar and to the citizens themselves.
The word-famous village of San Gimignano is known for its typical medieval architecture and is inscribed in the Unesco World Heritage Site list.
Despite a few restorations carried out during the past two Centuries, the old center of San Gimignano can be considered the best-preserved example of 12th and 13th Centuries urban structure all over Europe
San Gimignano is mostly known for the many Tower Houses and is often referred to as the “Medieval Manhattan”.
