Since then, it has grown, and now sees over two million visitors each year.Florence river

  1. Food

Italian food is notoriously delicious. Not only does the food in Florence hit the spot, every restaurant has beautiful views surrounding it. Stay away from the hot tourist locations, like around the cathedral or the Uffizi. These restaurants will typically come with inflated prices for substandard food. If you can, ask a local or check online reviews for the cost and standard of the food you’ll be eating.


Florence follows the ancient law that no building shall be taller than the church. The Cattedrale di Maria del Fiore is the tallest building in Florence, which means that the trip up to the top of the tower or around the dome is worth it for the incredible views.Tuscany
