After a coach portion to Bologna which lasts approx 85 minutes, get on the bullet train to Florence. It takes less than 40 minutes to be straight in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

The cradle of Renaissance is definitely a not-to-be-missed destination. Its chapelsgalleries and museums are never-ending treasures, capturing the complex, often elusive, spirit of the Renaissance more fully than any other place in the country – let’s think of the Uffizi Gallery, where masterpieces like Botticelli’s splendid “The Spring” and “The Birth of Venus” are displayed, or the Michelangelo’s “David” at Accademia Gallery.

Food and wine heritage is another masterpiece of this incredible city: mixed with art and architecture it makes the perfect combination for an unforgettable experience of the senses.
