Some of the finest artistic treasures in the world are kept in Florence, the city considered as the cradle of the Renaissance and of Italian art.
The Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Uffizi Gallery, the Bargello and the Accademia Gallery are the most famous places of art and cult of Florence.
The Uffizi and the Museo dell’Opera are Museums of worldwide importance, while the Santa Maria Novella and Santa Croce churches are veritable art galleries.
It’s nice to just walk through the streets from the old town centre to the river Arno and to the romantic, charming Ponte Vecchio, famous for its jewellery shops.
Piazza della Signoria, the heart of the city, is overlooked by the impressive and magnificent Palazzo Vecchio.
It is unforgivable not to spend a day at the Boboli Gardens or not to enjoy the superb view over the city from Piazzale Michelangelo.
The centre of Florence is also popular for shopping among the stalls, markets and couture boutiques.
Florence also has a lot to offer in terms of night life: historical coffee shops and concert venues, establishments, typical restaurants, taverns and eateries to savour true Tuscany Cuisine.
