We found Florence wonderful and would definitely go back again. There was just so much to see and do. As well as the wide variety of world class museums etc, we thoroughly enjoyed trying out the various restaurants both during the day and in the evening. Also, as we had hired a car, we spent several days exploring Tuscany which was also an absolute delight.

Florence was a great visit with plenty of sightseeing. Florence was very clean, however the beggars and gypsies could put you off visiting. It depends on where you were eating, some of the restaurants are more expensive than others.

Beaches

Out of Italy's main tourist destinations, Florence is the furthest from the sea, however, there are many beaches within reach. The easiest one to reach, Viareggio, is an hour and a half train ride away and is a beautiful long stretch of sand with plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas to rent. The water is shallow until quite far out so it is perfect for children. The town of Viareggio also has plenty to offer in the way of shops and restaurants so it is definitely worth taking the trip from Florence.

Things to Do

Florence is said to be one of Italy's most beautiful cities and offers endless museums, galleries and many other fine attractions.

Not only do the museums house some amazing sculptures and painting etc, the buildings themselves are worth seeing. There are also lots of beautiful churches and cathedrals, many of which were designed, built and decorated by some of the most famous artists of the time eg Michelangelo.

Make sure you visit The Duomo, it's one of Italy's most iconic landmarks and it is as impressive inside as it is outside and if you are feeling energetic, you can climb the 463 spiral stairs to the top. The Museo Gucci houses some of Gucci's own luxurious pieces and is a must for any fashion lover.

If you want a little time away from the crowds, visit the Giardino Bardini, a beautiful Italian Renaissance Garden, the perfect spot for some quiet time. You may wish to take part in some wine tasting or enjoy a course at one of the many cookery schools, a great way to improve your knowledge of Italian food.
