It was time to put all this information into a dynamic guide which we will constantly update in the hope of making your explorations even more enjoyable.
Feel free to write your comments, suggesting other places and providing new descriptions. We would love to hear about your experience in Florence.
Good reading and… good adventures!

If you’re passionate about the Renaissance period and everything Michelangelo ever touched, brushed, or treaded on, then Florence is the place for you. This fabulous city is so filled with the rich, thick air of history that you feel the weight of exquisite art in every corner around you. It then starts closing in gracefully and embracing you, until it rests in your heart. That is the moment when you feel an invisible hand pulling you to the ground. You feel like you want to bow down on your knees and say “Hey! I don’t wanna go anywhere else. Heck I don’t even want to get out of this very street!” I’ve lived with that sentiment since I first saw Florence. On the very first day that eternal bond was created between myself and that beautiful old city, and I plan to keep going back again and again.
