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.
We rented an apartment in the central area of Florence and enjoyed every minute of it even when it was very busy and hectic. So much to see around every corner and down each narrow street. Stunning buildings and lots of great restaurants and cafes...More

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
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
