If you’re not sure where to start exploring Tuscany, a good place would be starting from its capital. Florence is, without a doubt, the birthplace of the Renaissance movement, as well as the modern Italian language. Geniuses such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo, Brunelleschi, and Machiavelli made a name for themselves in this enchanting city. As you stroll down the central districts of Florence, you’ll find priceless pieces of art on every step of your way.
Countless museums, galleries, and heritage sites are located all over the city. Speaking of heritage sites, Florence was the first Tuscan site to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One gaze at Florence’s historical center will be enough to make you fall in love with this magical city. We recommend blending in and adopting the true Italian spirit. That means taking your time to savor in the best scoops of gelato and crispy slices of pizza. Find a local wine tasting event and make memorable moments.
Florence truly represents the core of Italy’s cultural identity in every way possible. But there are more locations to discover in the Tuscan region.
