No trip to this magical city would be complete without a wander round the old town - tightly packed streets, little shops and delis, bars and eateries, plus historic buildings and monuments round every corner.

What can be written about this place that has not been said a million times? One cannot come to Florence and not be impressed by the huge number of impressive facades and warren of roads.

Centro Storico is the essence of Florence. You can choose to explore it on your own (but with a prior homework) - that would take you 3 - 5 days (with the key museums), or you could take an organized walking tour (which I did)....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
