Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Florence

Florence (in Italian Firenze), the old capital of Tuscany, called "la Bella", and now a provincial capital, a university town and the see of an archbishop, is picturesquely situated on both sides of the River Arno, surrounded by foothills of the Apennines.

While in ancient times the life of Italy was centered on Rome, from the Middle Ages to our own day Florence has been its intellectual center. Here the Italian language and Italian literature were created, and here Italian art attained its finest form. With its astonishing abundance of art treasures, its historical associations and its beautiful surroundings, Florence is one of the world's greatest tourist centers.
