Florence, city of art par excellence, cradle of the Renaissance and the Italian language, it is the city that gave birth to artists and great minds such as Dante, Boccaccio, Machiavelli, and Galileo Galilei, decorated by masterpieces by Giotto, Botticelli, Michelangelo, and others.
You never tire of visiting this immense outdoor art museum. Its historic center has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offers a unique journey in its century spanning beauty. You start at Piazza del Duomo and visit the Duomo with Giotto’s Bell Tower, the baptistery, and the annexed museum. You continue towards the historic Piazza della Signoria and its palaces and you reach the Uffizi Gallery, one of the most important museums in the world for the works it holds. You can also admire the frescoes of Giotto in the Santa Croce Church.
But Florence is also enchanting for the Arno, the river which crosses it and offers incredible views such as walking across the Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence, known for its historic workshops and artisan goldsmiths.
Another stop is Palazzo Pitti with the Boboli Gardens. The magic continues at the table with dishes of Tuscan cuisine and wonderful regional wines.
