“So much to see in such a tiny space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

I hadn't realised just how small the Centro Storico of Florence
really was and how you come across something new at each
turn. Rather means that you can't get away from the crowds
but makes for easy sightseeing.

“Bustling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Florence centre isn't too big in fact you can walk most of it in a day and typically shop until you drop, eat as much high quality food as you can and take in all the rich history effortlessly.
Then start all over again the next day, lurrrrrsh!
