Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance and home
to world reknowned art treasures housed in the Galleria degli
Uffizi, Galleria Accademia (Michelangelo’s David),
the Duomo and Bapistery, the Medici Chapels, Bargello museum
and numerous cathedrals. In addition to the art treasures
and history Florence offers, it is known for its shopping
opportunities for leather, gold jewelry, paper and stationery
and fashion at its many shops and lively outdoor markets
(the main one - Mercato Centrale near San Lorenzo).
Stay in the city in a carefully chosen B&B or close
by in the peaceful countryside. Each of the country homes
offer convenient proximity to all the sights of Florence
while offering the ability to take easy day trips elsewhere.
For example, the nearby village of Impruneta is famous for
its ceramics, the Chianti Classico wine region and numerous
hill town villages and cities such as Siena, San Gimignano
