Florence, home of Renaissance art and architecture

Florence has long been a tourist destination and continues to attract millions of tourists annually. It boasts the greatest collection of Renaissance art and architecture in the world yet is small enough to be manageable if time is limited. Aside from its extraordinary art, Florence offers great restaurants, good shopping and fine hotels. Avoid the summer heat and come in winter when this glorious city is relatively free from tourist hordes.
