The name is enough to evoke the history, especially that linked to the Medici, the great Tuscan and Renaissance masters; the taste for harmony; the value of craftsmanship; the charm of a city that seems to have escaped the passage of time.
Florence is synonymous with the Renaissance, a treasure trove of art and a microcosm of the beauty of Tuscany, to be known and appreciated also in the dishes served in the trattorias of the old historic centre.
Michelangelo, Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello almost become traveling companions during your stay. You meet them in museums and churches; even outdoors, in places such as the Loggia dei Lanzi, sheltering Benvenuto Cellini's Perseus.
Florence is music and poetry, celebrated during the summer months around Palazzo Vecchio, where Piazza della Signoria becomes the lively crossroads of the city, or in the Boboli Gardens.
Florence is the gaze on the surrounding hills from the Belvedere terrace where the reproduction of Michelangelo's David is the starting point for a photograph, before visiting the authentic one, or on the Arno, from the top of Ponte Vecchio, a showcase of gold and history.
The city is still the medieval village of characteristic markets, such as that of leather, or the capital of fashion which makes its creative ability the means of conquering the catwalks of the whole world. Florence are the polychrome marbles that surround the churches, but also the workshops where the artisans continue with skill to hand down traditional craftsmanship.
