Florence is one big treasure trove of art and beauty. You better watch the pavement if you walk through this wonderful city, because you can't help being mesmerized by the Duomo, the Cathedral, and the ancient towers that made Florence what it is today. In the 14th century all rich families built themselves a nice tower, so they would stay safe.
Cradle of human arts, birthplace of the renaissance age which marked the end of the middle ages, Florence's museums, palaces and churches contain more good art than perhaps any city in Europe. The Medici family, a wealthy family of bankers and patrons of the art, played an important part Food is delicious, hotels are stunning
