Florence became a model for renaissance due to its writers, painters, and architects. We will spend two days here, giving you the time to explore what the city has to offer. One of the most enjoyed tours we provide is the tour of Pisa, where you can visit the square of miracles, including the famous Leaning Tower, the Cathedral, and Baptistry.


Rome is one of the most influential city-states in the Italian Renaissance. The Popes in Rome played a big role in the renaissance due to the church sponsoring artists in the hopes to spread Christianity, resulting in some of the era’s greatest works being devoted to the church. A famous artist who left his mark on Rome is Gianlorenzo Bernini, whose sculptures can be seen all over the city.


The renaissance was a new beginning for Barcelona. This city is the birthplace of Modernisme, a literature movement aiming to rediscover Catalan culture. There are many things to view here, including Passeig de Garcia, a boulevard known for its architecture. In addition, the famous Pablo Picasso gained his reputation in Barcelona, leaving a lasting impression. His artwork is displayed in the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, where you can see his most famous artwork. This is the last stop on our cruise, meaning you will have the extra time to see more of the city, if you please.

Traveling to these three cities, and stopping at other influential cities in between, including Monte Carlo, Marseille, and Montpellier, should be on the list for anyone wanting to learn more about the rich history of the Renaissance. This article has mentioned a couple of important museums and artists for this era, but the places to visit well exceed this list. The amazing art can be seen and felt through the street, leaving you constantly amazed.
