If you only have 10 days to spend in Italy, this is the tour for you. Start in Florence to see Renaissance works by da Vinci and other artists in the Uffizi Gallery, then head to Pisa to climb the famous leaning tower. Continue to the Tuscan countryside to see the medieval city of Siena, and end in Lucca, where 11th-century churches and the perfect plate of handmade pasta await.
You’ll start in the main square, Piazza del Campo, the city’s natural center. Its shell-shaped heart made of bricks oozes its warm, “Burnt Siena" color. From here, you’ll continue walking to the top of the hill where the majestic Cathedral stands. Inside, you can discover exceptional works of art, including masterpieces by Michelangelo and Donatello. Next, you'll visit several other sites within the city, twisting through its medieval streets and enjoying the views!
