It is no exaggeration to say that Florence, Italy, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, not just in Italy, but in the entire world!  Birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Florence is an outdoor museum, with stunning works of art in every corner, but especially in the fantastic Piazza della Signoria, which is in close proximity to the magnificent Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Vecchio.  Inside the walls of the Galleria dell'Accademia mysteriously stands Michelangelo's line of Slaves leading to his Goliath-size, jaw-dropping David, one of the most magnificent sculptures ever fashioned by the hands of man.  With the Arno River bisecting the city and the enormous Duomo dominating the skyline, Florence is a picture of natural and artistic perfection from every angle.  It is a city that seeps into your blood and exposes itself in cultural layers that take time to fully appreciate.  On top of all of this are the restaurants with Tuscan and Florentine menus that will satisfy the tastes of even the most discerning connoisseur (be sure to try a succulent Florentine steak).

Not far from Florence, are many other Tuscan towns that can be explored during your visit.  They include places like Seina, Pisa, Lucca San Gimignano, Volterra and Greve in Chianti.  You are also within reasonable distance to Cinque Terre.  

So join us on this special New Year's Eve trip to dazzling Florence.  The streets will be lined with vendors on New Year's Eve and music will be played in some of the major piazzas with crowds gathered to watch the fireworks throughout the city as the clock strikes midnight.  The entire atmosphere will be one of fraternal celebration under the glow of the Renaissance, where the past meets the present and rings in the future.  If you have traveled with us before over New Year's Eve and enjoy Europe during the off-season, don't miss this fabulous opportunity to see Florence in a different way.  

TOUR FEATURES:  This fabulous holiday getaway includes round trip air transportation to/from Florence, Italy on Lufthansa Airlines (a great carrier!) out of EWR or JFK;  all private motor coach transfers between the Florence Airport and the hotel;  SIX nights in the four stars, centrally-located and well-reviewed Hotel Diplomat;  complete buffet breakfasts daily;  a FULL day guided sightseeing tour of Florence including entrance to the Academia to see the statue of Michelangelo's David and entrance to the magnificent and world-famous Uffizi Gallery; an optional full day Tuscany tour to Siena, San Gimignano and Greve in Chianti;  and a pre-departure orientation and pizza party.   We will also attempt to put together an optional NYE Bash (dinner and music) for anyone who would like to celebrate as part of a group.
