An intoxicating collection of renaissance architecture, stunning art, and mouth-watering Italian cuisine. I mean, what more could you want?
The city itself, on the banks of the Arno river, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site loaded with charming cobbled streets, chapels and palaces. The world-class museums are home to without question some of the most famous sculptures and artworks on the planet, and visitors travel from all corners of the globe to see it all for themselves.
Perhaps the best known landmark is the remarkable Duomo and it'll not take you long wandering this compact city before you arrive at it. You can explore the cathedral and even climb to the very top of the cupola (if you don't mind steps, and lots of them). From here you'll get one of the most impressive views of the city possible. You can also look down around 40-metres into the central part of the cathedral.
Transport yourself to the heart of Tuscany and fall head over heels for everything Florence has to offer.
