IMPOSSIBLE TO FORGET ABOUT FLORENCE
Florence can be defined as the City of Art. The Tuscan capital is, in fact, a small cultural metropolis, which offers its visitors some of the most important and fascinating museums and art galleries in the world. Florence is a perfect tourist destination, both for a one-day trip and a longer one. Some travelers decide to visit it during the day, to simply take a trip around the city, while others need a week to fully absorb all the splendour of Florentine life. What is certain is that, in both cases, anyone will leave the city wishing to return!
