  • The most beautiful old town, for many. Now that most of the centre is forbidden to cars, the beauty of this beautiful city stands out, and you appreciate even more the magnificent palaces, the artistic riches, and everything Florence can offer.

  • Wandering around the old town you can breathe art and beauty. Churches, museums small shops, restaurants where you can taste the cuisine of the place. Everything is about history and you never tire of looking at the Ponte Vecchio, the Boboli garden, Piazza della Signoria, Piazza del Duomo, Santa Croce, Santa Maria Novella and much more.... In any season it is wonderful and you can not fail to discover new ways and new shops where to buy beautiful memories and tasty specialties.
