the Duomo Floro, a must see on a Florence vacation

Florence Vacations: City of Masterpieces

Welcome to Firenzi. Culturally rich and visually delightful, this little city in the heart of Tuscany is one of the top must-see destinations. Birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence delights with cobblestoned streets, soaring architecture, crowded piazzas and hushed, reverent galleries—home to the works of Da Vinci, Botticcelli and Michelangelo. Whether you want to shop at A-list fashion houses, indulge in Tuscan wine, people-watch in the shade of the Duomo, or catch a Ponte Vecchio sunset, Liberty Travel can craft a vacation package that’s perfect for you.
