Each time you look is a different look. I personally think that the cleanliness of the streets could be improved, and sometimes it seemed to me that people don't take care of their own heritage. But this city is amazing and surely a place to...More

We visited florence on Christmas holidays. The city was amazing and very festive. Not only tourists but also citizens enjoyed the atmosphere and strolling around in piazza Duomo, ponte vecchio, piazzale Michaelangelo etc. Much better than Rome.

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
