Firenze! It just rolls off the tongue. Italy is an amazing country full of historic architecture, fantastic food, a vibrant culture, and beautiful countryside. In Florence, you get it all. While you are there, climb up the steps of Il Duomo di Firenze. This magnificent cathedral is stunning and one of the largest in Italy. The views from the top are inspiring, and give you a great look at the sea of red rooftops. And when you are done sightseeing, go eat at La Giostra and order the wild boar pappardelle.
