La Dolce Vita

1. Florence: Renaissance Walk Audio Tour

From the Duomo to the Arno. As the home of the Renaissance and birthplace of the modern, urban lifestyle, Florence is Europe's cultural capital. This 90-minute walk through the heart of Renaissance Florence starts at the soaring church dome that symbolizes the proud Renaissance spirit. We'll also see the bronze doors that opened the Renaissance, and walk the same narrow streets as Michelangelo and the Medicis. As we walk from the Duomo to the Arno River — about a mile altogether — we'll see the Florence of yesterday, but also the vibrant, trendy city that is Florence today.
