There won’t any hype if I say that the world has been obsessed with this charming Tuscan capital since it was a blushing bambino. Stepping back into its enchanting history, this beautiful Tuscan town has seen numerous invasions, wars, political battles and religious turmoil in the last two thousand years.History has selected Florence to become the cradle of the art in the whole world.  From Ghiberti’s daunting doors, Michelangelo’s marble boy toys, and Botticelli’s sexy shellfish to Brunelleschi’s curvaceous wall, today the city is home to some of the most stunning artifacts on earth.So, you will be having enough to impress your eyes and soul that will drag you to the little Tuscan city again and again.

Best of the Beaten Paths

The biggest problem in Florence is not figuring the best things to see, instead it is what not to see while here. However, the first stop on your travel itinerary should be at the Uffizi Gallery – not because it is too big in size, but getting into this museum is a time-taking job; you’ll find long queues and tickets needs to be reserved in advance, if you don’t want to wait outside.The gallery features an amazing collection of European paintings. For art lovers, this art gallery is an ideal holiday retreat.  And travelers who are not much of artistic side may head down to beaches, restaurants and souvenir shops.I also recommend you to meander through the streets and explore the marvelous structure mainly pied alongside the Piazzas. Florence is home to many heart-stopping architecture examples dating back to 12th and 13th centuries.
