Visit Florence, a city to explore!

It is not difficult to visit Florence, the city is quite small, but full of beautiful places to see, the historic center has plenty of attractions and sights that fascinate tourists from all over the world.

The river Arno becomes an important reference, because it separates the city into what we identify as the northern area, which includes large part of the historic center, and the area called Oltrarno, which preserves the ancient city wall and popular quarters of S.Niccolò and S.Frediano, described by Piero Bargellini as the most genuine and authentic part of Florence.

Take your time, relax and leave the frenzy of every day, and enjoy the places we have chosen for you.
