Your tour begins with a 40-minute ride to Pisa, home of the famous Leaning Tower. Drive along the Arno River to discover the unexpected side of the city, including the University area where Galileo studied. Stop in Cathedral Square to view the Leaning Tower, Duomo, Baptistry, and Camposanto.

Next, you will drive the hour to Florence, stopping first for a beautiful view on the hills overlooking the city. When you arrive in the city, make your way to the Accademia where the original David by Michelangelo is located (since you have reservations, you will be able to avoid the lines!). The sculpture has been housed here since 1873, when it was moved from its previous outdoor location on Piazza della Signoria.

Next, make your way to the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, the Duomo of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Florence. This cathedral, the third to be built in Florence, was the largest in Europe when it was completed, with room for 30,000 people. It is noted for its high, octagonal-ribbed dome and is Brunelleschi's most famous masterpiece. Then head to the baptistry with its famous bronze gates, before coming to the Basilica di Santa Croce (Basilica of the Holy Cross), where Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, and Rossini are all buried. You will also visit the Old Bridge area, with its medieval roads and Renaissance palaces. If you are interested, you will have the opportunity to stop in some of the workshops to visit the craftsmen.

At some point, you will want to stop for lunch (on your own) and do a little shopping. You will have about one hour to shop for leather, gold, Tuscany pottery, shoes, water colors, or other Florentine treasures.

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.
