Florence is one of the towns where you can just walk and walk, there is no need for public transport unless you want to go to the outskirts.
The centre is very pretty and as we visited in November it wasn't too busy, but can't...More
This is truly the birthplace of the Renaissance. In such a small area, you see art everywhere. The spirit of the Florentine geniuses permeates the place. Marvel at the museums, the churches, the squares, the bridges, the palaces, the monasteries, and the outdoor art and...More
There is a lot to see around the historical center. You could spend a day on each historical place or building an learn about their rich history. But the places are really crowded. Also the entrances to the main sightseeing spots are high.
A visit , with the right amount of time, of the Centro Storico of this beautiful city, is something you simply cannot pass. Still holding some 30-40% of all the monuments related to the italian Rissorgimento, the city breaths culture. As well as beauty, for...More

Spent three days wandering around here. Crowded for sure, but the buildings and museums are to die for. Top tip - plan your visit and book the major sights in advance or you'll go from one multi-hour queue to another.

This is the historic center of Florence; what does that mean? It means (for UNESCO World Heritage site identification and everyone else) that this is a collection of the most important of the city's heritage collections. This is where its medieval heart still beats.
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
