Our 5 day pilgrimage transfers you to Tuscany, Florence located on the river Arno, it is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, millions of visitors flock to Florence to enjoy its fine art, architecture, sacred art and religious buildings. One of the most famous being the Santa Maria del Fiore best known as the Duomo, it is a cathedral with a unique Renaissance dome. The cathedral complex includes the breath taking marble campanile and the ancient baptistery which was built in the 4th or 5th century. We explore the Uffizi Gallery and take a walking tour of Florence before stopping at the Maria del Carmine and the Santa Maria Novella churches. Our parting gift from Italy is a visit to the famous Leaning Tower, the surprisingly crooked campanile of Pisa Cathedral.
