Overflowing with extraordinary art and captivating architecture, Firenze is packed to the gills with original masterpieces and priceless artefacts. Located on the banks of the Arno, the distinct profile of this historic city has hardly changed since the Renaissance. Its narrow, cobbled streets areoverflowing with elegant palazzi (palaces), medieval chapels, fresco-adorned churches and culturally infused museums, positively brimming with paintings and sculptures by Botticcelli, Michelangelo and friends. In addition to the heavy-weight historic legacy Firenze holds dear, it is also home to members of Italy's fashion nobility such as Guccio Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Sitting comfortably side-by-side are award-winning fashion empires, rustic family owned eateries and ancient monuments, all of which make Firenze a 'must-see' destination when visiting Tuscany...
