  • Florence, and especially the historic center, represents the art and history of Italy. The path that advice is as follows: Palazzo Pitti, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria, Piazza Santa Croce, Piazza del Duomo and arrival at Santa Maria Novella. This way you can avoid visiting everything downtown, including the streets less famous but no less beautiful.

  • I fell in love with Florence, there is little to do! The historic haunted me. Wonderful trip in the Renaissance. Full of artistic masterpieces, the colored marbles of churches, breathes history and culture at every turn. Worth a visit in a relaxed atmosphere.
