Firenze/Florence is the capital of Italy’s Toscana/Tuscany, and home to masterpieces of Renaissance architecture and...More

As long as you work around the masses of tourists during the middle of the day, Florence is still a beautiful city. The duomo buildings can't be missed as they're stunning and try to arrive early or stay late into the evening to avoid the...More

If you can, get a place in the Centro Storico, pedestrians only, walking distance from just about everything you need to see, take walking shoes because of the lava cobbles. Its wonderful to walk out of your hotel and straight into history and eating places.

Since we heard a lot about Florence, my wife and I were a bit disappointed by the architecture of the city and specially of the palaces from outside. I would say in Florence everything is inside the palaces and museums. Right afterwards, we went to...More

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
