Florence is the jewel of Tuscany, Italy filled to the brim with precious art and sculptures and architecture. When travelling to Italy you have to go to Florence. It is a must do! The city was born out of the golden age of the Renaissance where art and culture were celebrated and revered by the city’s designers.
The genius that sprung out of this nurtured environment such as Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Cellini and Dante, lifted the whole of Western Civilization into a new era, one where education, beauty and fine craftsmanship was valued and Florence shows this off in all its finest glory.
