City description  

The most beautiful city, in the most beautiful region of Italy, Florence is a constant delight for those who love to make their way through the maze of Italian history. Anyone planning a stay in Florence is sure to succumb to the architectural wonders that the city offers.

You'll think you're dreaming when you find yourself facing the Ponte Vecchio, the famous Florentine bridge that's home to arcades dating from the fourteenth century. The fascinating heart of this Renaissance capital, the Ponte Vecchio elegantly delivers a distinguished image of beautiful Florence.

As you stroll along it, you'll be able to appreciate the work of the goldsmiths and jewelers that bring this bridge to life, such an important part of Florence for centuries.
The other unmissable place is without a doubt the Uffizi Gallery. This symbol of medieval Florence, once a stately home, transports travelers here to a place far away as soon as they walk into one of its rooms in order to admire the eternal grace of Botticelli's Birth of Venus. Walking around its large corridors and floating above the historic center will then take you above the Ponte Vecchio.
From here, the ancestral walls of Florence look more like a movie set than reality. You'll think you're dreaming as you pass in front of such princely buildings as Santa Maria Del Fiore. The prestige of the historic center dazzles, with its centuries-old buildings like the lavish luxury perfumery and pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella, built in the seventeenth century.
Florence takes exquisite delight in playing tricks on its visitors, mixing dreams with real life, legend with reality. A seductive and exhilarating treat that takes on even more resonance when you find yourself in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, amid a vast square, at aperitivo time. The spectacle of the sun setting on the imposing facade guarded by the statues of Donatello and Michelangelo could not be any more striking.
