The most important places to visit are located within walking distance, so, allow yourself a full day stroll among them all !

Lovely place to wander around, though hot, hot, hot in July! Will certainly return to Florence as it is amazing, but probable May or September time.

Apart from the huge number of tourists going around and queuing during hours to visit museums and main spots, the very center of Florence gives the best example of an Italian town where Renaissance took place. It is still possible to discover some jewels outside...More

What a special place this is, the narrow streets, the impressive architecture and the river nearby !! History at every corner. Take the time, make the effort with the crowds and enjoy the experience - it's worth it.

It would be easy to see the historic centre of Florence as a 'renaissance disneyland' but you would be selling yourself and the city very short. The ancient streets are filled with millennia of history butting up against modern life. Italian designers and Florentine history...More

Walking in the center of Florence has got to be one of the top attractions of the city. A must for every visitor!

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
