Plenty to see and do here. The streets are lined with every shop imaginable and the museums and galleries are many. Nice to wander around and see what you can find. Very busy area for tourists.

We visited just the gardens and they are beautiful. They offer a nice place to walk, relax and enjoy the ambiance. However just to see the garden you have to pay 10€ and I think thar is excessive.

The historical center of Florence is definitely something worth doing as there is something amazingly historical around every turn you take.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
