Why Go on a Tour of Florence

The capital of the Tuscany region, splendid Florence, is one of the most traveled to gems of Italy. Located at the top of the "bootleg" of the Italian peninsula, the city is famous for its spectacular views and striking cultural heritage.

Just imagine that Florence has been attracting visitors for 5 centuries already! The homeland of the famous discoverer Amerigo Vespucci, the master of the poetic syllable Dante Alighieri, the great creators Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci - Florence just abounds in fancy architectural masterpieces and exceptional works of art.

So it is for a reason that Florence is called an open-air museum. The historic center of Florence is adorned with some brilliant examples of architecture that just leave people speechless.

All travelers planning a Florence walking tour should start their exploration from the main symbol of the city, the impressive Cathedral di Santa Maria del Fiore, followed by visiting the Basilica of Santa Croce, where such geniuses as Dante, Galileo, and Michelangelo rest.

Admiring the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the oldest building in the city is a must too.

Plus, strolling around the ornate streets and squares of the old town may also be enhanced by the luxurious Uffizi Gallery, housing the world-class works of art like "The Birth of Venus" by Sandro Botticelli and "The Baptism of Christ" by Leonardo da Vinci.

Moreover, you may always diversify your Florence tour by an Italian food degustation or by setting off on a saturated Tuscany wine tour from Florence! In any case, the range of nice travel opportunities is endless and, for sure, Florence is a nice addition to any Italy travel package which will never leave you disappointed.
