Yes you have to see the must see attractions, but some of the real treats are meandering down side streets to explore and enjoy everything Florence has to offer. Wander and get lost, you won't regret it!

Duomo
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
