Florence Tips

This is my first real attempt at creating a Virtual Tourist set of pages.

Florence is just a great place to visit for a relaxing and cultural holiday.

There is plenty to do in Florence and the Tuscany region.

In these pages I've included tips on places to eat, visit and avoid. Hopefully the photo's will help!



The Duomo is the fourth largest in the world and has a very impressive facade. Good luck photographing it!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful, interesting, plenty to do, great food!
  • Cons:Beware of overloading on Renaissance Art
  • In a nutshell:If in doubt and you are in Italy, then go to Florence!
  • Last visit to Florence: Apr 2003

    I loved Florence so much... it is always a pleasure to see it through others' eyes. I just can't get enough of it... :-) Oh I missed Dino Bartolini shop. I must add it to my "why I must to go back to Florence" list... Thanks, Martin ! cheers !

    I overloaded on Renaissance art here, too, but I'd go back again in a second (just a glutton for punishment when it comes to this)! Great tips and pictures!

    A pleasure to read and view such a well written, enthusiastic group of pages. Boboli entranced you as it did me. Your details were right on target and helpful. Thanks ever so much.
