With hundreds of years of history and tradition behind it, Florence (or Firenze) is high on the list of the world’s best-known and most visited tourist destinations. And not without reason, because even a casual visitor to the city will realize how overwhelming the cultural atmosphere of the city is. In fact, you are likely to realize that even though it is a modern city in many ways, Florence is essentially still the medieval metropolis that enriched the cultural and political life of Europe in so many ways. Therefore, the first thing to do when you land in Florence is enjoy it, and we promise to show you how.

Simply walking around Florence is a marvelous experience. Without any particular locations in mind, spend an entire day simply strolling around soaking in the atmosphere, the magnificent churches, majestic palaces, and charming squares. And need we really mention its internationally celebrated museums, art galleries, and historical residences? As you can see, therefore, Florence offers plenty of scope for enjoyment.

We would love to be your tour guides on this magical discovery of Florence, and our site has plenty of information on how best to enjoy Florence. For instance, we can tell you that the best time to visit Florence is April-June and September-October, when the weather is excellent, the hotels offer good rates, and there are fewer tourists. In fact, early winter (December, ideally) can also be very pleasant, with far fewer tourists once again.

If you are sightseeing around Florence, we recommend a list of venues that You Must See even if you see nothing else of Florence. On our list is the Baptistery, the Basilica di Santa Croce, Basilica di Santa Maria del Carmine, Cappelle Medicee, Duomo, Galleria degli Uffizi, Loggia della Signoria, Opificio delle Pietre Dure, Palazzo Pitti, and the Palazzo Vecchio.

Well, we tried to keep the list short, but Florence has so much to enjoy that your holiday will seem over in no time. Besides, there’s the shopping, particularly if you are looking for the best in clothes, shoes, leather, ceramics, and wine. Then there’s the walking and cycling, which are immensely popular activities in and around Florence. And if you happen to be there on Easter Saturday, you can witness the Explosion of the Cart, when a cart full of fireworks is blown up in front of the Duomo. We promise you it is an unforgettable experience. Also in June are held the Feast of St John the Baptist, and the vigorous Gioco del Calcio Storico, when teams play football matches in period costumes.

All in all, therefore, enjoyment and Florence are synonymous. For more on the subject, why not pay us a visit at www.yourwaytoflorence.com?
