Travel Europe - Forence, Italy
Florence is a tiny Italian city that packs a punch – there are over 1 million Renaissance artworks (including Michaelangelo’s David and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus), and it is the birthplace of Gucci, Pucci, Roberto Cavalli and Ferragamo. Florence is also home to some of the world’s greatest wines and delicious steaks.
Things to Do in Florence:
> Tour Pizza della Signoria, Italy’s most famous plaza with a free outdoors sculpture exhibit.
> Visit Il Duomo, Brunelleschi’s famous masterpiece cathedral.
> Take the Uffizi private tour of the Contini Bonacossi collection of art. Also see the Galleria dell’ Academia, where Michaelangelo’s David is held.
> Shop at the San Lorenzo Market and Via Tornabuoni fashion boutiques.
> Try the monk-made cosmetics and liquers at the Officiana Profumo Farmeceutica di Santi Maria Novella.
> Enjoy an evening of Italian food and entertainment at Teatro del Sale. Eccentric restaurateur Fabio Picchi is the mastermind behind the jazz, theater, and stand up comedy performances held there.
