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.

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.
