Description

From Florence, head first to Santa Croce Church, where Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, and Rossini are all buried. Then your driver will park in the Piazza del Duomo to survey the superb cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the second largest church in the world.

You are now in the middle of the walking area, only five minutes from the best shopping area in town. Check out the Piazza della Signoria--with Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi Museum, and Ponte Vecchio, the famous 14th century covered bridge--home of Florence's gold shops! Here you can wander through the fashionable boutiques or sample a bit of Tuscan cuisine.

Remember that the driver is always at your total disposal to show you any place you wish--for example, the Accademia Gallery, home to the original statue of Michelangelo's David, or the huge Pitti Palace, a large, mainly Renaissance palace located on the south side of the Arno, a short distance from the Ponte Vecchio. Or perhaps you'd like to visit Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, located in the cathedral, and home of Michelangelo's Pietà (1548-55).

On return, detour to Pisa, where you will park in the middle of the famous "Field of Miracles." This square is the site of Pisa's Baptistery, Campo Santo, Duomo, and, of course, the Campanile, better known as the Leaning Tower. Make sure to bring your camera!

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.
