What to do in Florence

Florence, located far to the center of Italy, is the capital of the region of Tuscany. For countless centuries, especially during the Renaissance, was one of the cities with more weight in the cultural and artistic heritage around the world, is home to the likes of Michelangelo and Brunelleschi. Much of this legacy can be seen today in day in its streets and squares, as well as its important cultural offerings.

The cultural tourism l offers a thousand and one ways to enjoy Florence. According to UNESCO, approximately 60% of the principal works of art in the world are in this city, something more surprising and gives an idea of the wealth of monuments, paintings or buildings shall have occasion to visit. The Accademia Gallery contains some of the most famous works of Michelangelo, the David or the tomb of Julius II, among others. Other prominent museums are the Uffizi Gallery and the Bargello Palace, where we can also see other works by Michelangelo.

Simply strolling through the streets of Florence, especially the urban area, leads us to meet many of their outstanding monuments: the basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore, which performs the function of a cathedral, or Old Bridge, which was built, according to historians, from Roman times, are just some of them. Therefore, it can be a good idea to choose hotels in Florence that are located near the monumental area. Although transport infrastructure works well, there is nothing comparable to discovering all the hidden wonders of the city on our own feet.

We must bear in mind a maxim that applies to all Italian cities, the prices are quite high. We are not frightened by it, the solution is to manage money best. It is worth making the effort to visit a city like this unparalleled.
