PISA AND ITS TOWER:

Famous for its leaning Tower, Pisas's medieval buildings overlooking the curving Arno offer some of Italy's nicest riverside views. The origin of Pisa stretch back to Roman times, when the Italic settlement that had existed since 1000 B.C. was transformed into a commercial harbor (in the 2nd century B.C.). The city's maritime power was realized in the 11th century, when Pisa was one of the four powerful Italian Maritime Republics, along with Venice, Amalfi and Genoa.Centuries later the city lost its water access (the river silted up) and its power. During the three century of its splendor, however, the wealth coming from far-flung commerce funded the construction of the monumental town that you can still admire today. In Campo dei Miracoli square, there is the famous Leaning Tower, the Duomo's Campanile (bell tower). Started in 1173 by the architect Bonnano, this beautiful eightstory carved masterpiece was finally finished in 1360. It took so long because to build because it started leaning almost from the beginning, so the Pisans stopped construction in 1185.

SAN GIMIGNANO:

A perfectly preserved medieval town, San Gimignano delle Belle Torri, is one of southern Tuscany's most famous destinations. San Gimignano has been called "The Manhattan of Tuscany" because of its soaring towers. The Palazzo del Popolo (the government's palace) was built between 1288 and 1323. Its tower, the Torre Grossa (Big Tower), the tallest in the town, was added in 1311.

UFFIZI GALLERY:

Occupying a Renaissance palazzo built by Vasari to house the administrative offices (uffizi means offices) of the Tuscan Duchy, the gallery houses a mind-blowing collection of work. Here you pictorially experience the birth of the Renaissance, seeing how the changing ideas about the nature of humanity were translated into visual form. You can witness the change if you start your visit with Cimabue's great Crucifixion, still inspired by the flat forms and ritualized expression of Byzantine art. The work of Sandro Botticelli with his Birth of Venus and Primavera. The spectacular triptych of Hugo van der Goes. Piero della Francesca's famous diptych with full profile portraits of Federico da Montefeltro and his wife. You can then delight in the full explosion of the Renaissance, with Masaccio's Madonna and the child with St. Anne, Leonardo's Adoration of the Magi and Annunciation, several Raphaels, and works by Michelangelo and Caravaggio. The Uffizi gallery is probably the most famous art museum of the Western world.
