“Nothing like it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

There is nothing like it anywhere else (well maybe but not many places). History, art, architecture and science whenever you turn. You'd need to live here to really see it all.

The down side? The crowds.

“I keep coming back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Florence is a great small city to just walk the streets (those with attractions and those without). It mostly flat so hill climbs are minimal and you can cross most of it in 30 + minutes. There are street vendors if that is your thing and fine shopping if your budget allows. I will never understand why tourists buy the Terrible "art" prints that are sold nearly everywhere.

“Duomo wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

It is an amazing site. A can't miss. Perfect for all ages. You can take as much time as you need. Many sites, statues. You don't have to go to the top of the dome but it is a challenge worth the exersise.
