We loved everything about Florence, the people, the food, the sights; brilliant. Yes, there are loads of people about, but that adds to the charm and the architecture is simply amazing.

Firenze is a very romantic and full of history. Always a good choice and you can easily spend at least 10 days there without having time to explore all you can.

If you want to push and shove this is the place to go, not for enjoyment. Lot of tatty jewellery stores selling what amounted to be tat at very inflated prices, some of it you could get in any continental market. Not worth going far because of the crowds, but good for pics if you can get a view.

What's not to like about Florence? The Centro Storico is rich in architecture and art. It's simply a feast for the mind and eyes. The Piazza around the Duomo is just so beautiful. If I were lucky enough to live in Italy. I would live in Florence.

This place is oh so very crowded as much of the center of florence is. Not much "charm" like what the other reviews stated IMO. jewelry store after jewelry store. people after people then you cross the bridge to more hoards of people. I would highly suggest venturing to the other side of the river via other bridges further up... More

The church is beautiful inside and out. Burial monuments to Michelangelo, Galileo and others who are buried in the church are amazing.

This is one walk you must do in Florence. It takes you through a part of town that still manages to convey snapshots of life in the past. Artists, jewellers and some of the best restaurants in town can be found here. Stroll through the historic bridge into the other historic areas that also offer some of the world's best... More
