About Florence

Florence, the capital of Tuscany in Italy, is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Whether you are visiting one of the over 80 museums in the city, strolling through the gardens, or checking out the old city walls, Florence is breathtaking in every sense of the word. While you are here, be sure to spend some time in the centro storico, the old town area, and the shopping district centered in Via Roma. 

Here are a few additional suggestions of things to do in Florence:

-Galleria degli Uffizi: This is one of the most famous fine art museums in the world.

-The Duomo: This cathedral has become a symbol of the city and offers beautiful views from its dome.

-Boboli Gardens: These gardens make up Florence's most famous park area.

-Piazza della Signoria: This is Florence's most famous square.

-Ponte Vecchio: Built in 1345, this is the only bridge that has survived from the medieval days of Florence.

The best time to visit Florence is in the spring, when the weather is still pleasant but the high tourist season is still a few months off.
