Firenze, the Athens of the Middle Ages, birthplace of the Renaissance and UNESCO World Heritage Site, enchanted with its many historic streets, museums and art pieces. Our Italian ambassadors, Luigi and Saro, toured a group of our team to Duomo: Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Signoria, and Ponte Vecchio. It was a quick yet absorbing tour through this magnetic city. Did we mention they have fantastic gelato!
The rest of our team engaged in a true duel of death driving along the coast of Cinque Terre! Narrow and windy roads leading to Vernazza delivered on their promise revealing the most breathtaking Italian village, a gem hidden among the cliffs. Nothing could stop us and no place could hide from us! Although Bray, our driver, made us sign contracts that next time we all take the train to Vernazza. We had challenged our destiny enough for one trip!
