Florence

Situated in Tuscany, in northern Italy, Florence (or, in Italian, Firenze) is a city of great history and culture. With a past that stretches back hundreds of years, the city’s main draw for travellers is its grand architecture, with buildings that have stood for centuries. The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, or Florence Cathedral, and the Basilica di Santa Croce are two of the city’s most famous churches. Each has stood for around six hundred years, with intricate detail from those ages still remarkably intact.

It’s also a city of rich culture. Florence is home to Michelangelo’s David, one of the most famous sculptures ever made. Beyond the art, gourmet connoisseurs will find much to love, from some of the finest bread to richly flavourful pasta. Tuscan cuisine stands on its own among other Italian food, and has been exported to the world. However, there’s nothing like visiting the source of such wonderful food!
