“History and Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Florece is all about Beauty and history. I enjoyed walking on the streets watching everything from churches, attractions, top brand shops and tourists.

The streets are clean and not crowded, and it's easy to walk around the city.

Don't forget to go to the river side to see a view for beautiful houses.

“Love to walk in Michelangelo's footsteps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Love this city, so full of history, wish it had been my school girl class room. But as for petty crime, there is a police presence, but it is a joke, seems to be that they are there as models for the smart uniform. There needs to be some seriousness about this, tourists will not consider pick pocketing a joke for too much. longer

Small, compact and easy to walk around, combining amazing history, buildings and all the shopping experiences you might want. Left a few things to do on a future visit

“The reason you come to Florence...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is the heart of Florence. The squares, shoppes, cobble stone streets - this is the Florence of your dreams. I could spend hours on end watching tourists meander and street performers act. The sites, the sounds, the smells in the historic center all come together to form the Florence you've always wanted to visit. You will not be disappointed.
