Florence is a city associated with romance and love, and most lovebirds visit it to proclaim how incredulously in love they are. The duomo in Florence is one of the most breathtaking sights in the city. It has many historical paintings – not as many as the Uffizi Gallery, though.. One can reside in cheap hotels in Florence with great views of the landscape beyond.

Pisa‘s principal monument is the leaning tower. A popular street leads up to the tower from the train station named Walking Street. It is lined with many statues some of praying people while others are of high- end fashion stars. Some hotels with free breakfast in Pisa are the Hotel Riviera Blu, Hotel Bristol and Abitalia tower plaza.

As an umbrella to the art city trip, you might enjoy residing at the beach hotels in Naples with stunning views of the sea and the beach.
