Florence (aka Firenze) is a city not to be missed. It has the history of a city like Paris while maintaining a charming and almost small feel as you spend the day exploring. If you’re off exploring the Tuscan Country sided it’s a fantastic day trip. Florence is also a city you can settle down in for a week. The city’s magic never disappoints, even in the sweltering heat of the summer with tourists galore.

Best time of year to visit: Fall and Spring are our favorite. Summer gets quite busy and hot. A trip to Florence is always a good idea though.

Recommended stay: 1 day to 1 week
