Florence, Italy overview

Florence boasts a combination of 21st-century glamour and ancient historical significance. Tuscany's capital is as appealing to the mind as it is to the eye. Delicately shaded in pink, white, and green marble, the Piazza del Duomo is the most eye-catching jewel on the Florence skyline. Pose with Michelangelo's David outside the Palazzo Vecchio, or stroll through the gardens of the Medici Villas.

6 Florence, Italy Port Reviews

Florence is a beautiful city, with a lot of historic buildings and monuments. On my cruise I went to Rome too, but to my opinion, Florence is a better looking city. It's not a big city, so you can walk from one historic building to the other easily. And during that small walk you can see other old and beautiful buildings. Florence is truly a city that should be on your bucket list.

One of the most beautiful places if you like looking at buildings and statues then this is a must. The town centre was lovely with its markets and modern stores


by Gayell

Loved this place. Smaller than Rome but so many interesting places to explore. To me it was like a time capsule. Everything was so quaint & old fashioned. Loved some of the art works also
