"Everything in Florence is..." Florence Favorite Tip by Snoekie

Florence General: 471 reviews and 520 photos

Favorite thing: Everything in Florence is beautiful. It's narrow streets, the colored houses and the Ponte Vecchio I adored. That bridge sure is beautiful. You must absolutely go to the Piazzale Michelangelo, it's a steep walk up hill but it's worth it. From there you'll have a great view of the city! Also the Giardino di Boboli (a park in Florence) is a nice place to have lunch in. When you're in Florence for a longer time, you could also visit the town Siena which is close by (a bus goes there from Florence). This town is very beautiful and well known for the annual horse races that are held here in the summer.

Fondest memory: When I think of Florence I think of the Passegiata at night. The very important walk around town everybody does every night just to show themselves and meet people.
