The historic center of Florence is filled with outstanding architecture and many, many points of interest. The crowds, especially in the summer, but, even in the shoulder seasons are a testament to its popularity. If you're going to Italy for the first time, it definitely...More

Florence is a living Renaissance museum and the old city has stunning architecture, amazing art museums, and wonderful restaurants. Very touristy, yes, but worth the crowds. I would reckoned doing your research before visiting-pick what you want to see and pre-booking tickets for major attractions.

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
