Florence is the capital of Italy’s Tuscany region and is a truly world-class destination, steeped in art and culture. This small city with its narrow, cobbled streets,is situated on the banks of the Arno river and has hardly changed since the Renaissance. It is home to several fascinating museums, palaces, churches and numerous other historic sites.
Visit the amazing Duomo with its dome and bell tower, the much-photographed Ponte Vecchio bridge, the churches of Santa Maria Novell and Santa Croce and be sure make time to see the huge and varied art collection housed in the Pitti Palace. There are so many sights to see that it’s not surprising that the whole city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
