    Rome, London is a real beautiful city, especially historical center, built along the historical center, Cathedral is the most famous sure then, 頂 far finish could see large dome, Wu Fei Moritz collection Natural History Museum is also worth a visit. The most interesting is, other than history, historical centre there are many fashion brands can be bought, right is the fusion of history and fashion

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
