There is an air of romance about Florence
Senior travelers on Europe tours have many exciting sites to explore on the Old Continent, and few countries have more attractions than Italy. The Mediterranean nation is home to world-class cities like Rome, Venice and Milan, yet travelers hoping to experience the true culture of Italy will definitely want to plan an escorted vacation to the city of Florence.

Located in the beautiful region known as Tuscany, Florence is one of Italy's most popular tourist destinations thanks to its ancient structures, its world famous cuisine and medieval heritage. The city is considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and has been listed as an UNESCO World Heritage site since 1982.

Breathe in the ancient air in the city's duomo, or cathedral, which boasts a unique classic architecture indicative of the region and features works from some of the greatest artists of the Renaissance Era like Michelangelo and Florence's own Donatello.

Look upon the famed and historic Ponte Vecchio bridge, the city's oldest and the only one to survive the multiple battles of World War II. Here travelers can stroll across the Arno river and gain a clearer understanding of why Florence is considered the romance capital of Italy.
